Smells like sweet berries and almost marijuana like hop profile. Nice slight hop bite up front followed by an intense sweet berry flavor that is thick and rich from the mouthfeel. A lingering piney bitterness is on the aftertaste as well. Wow, how can anyone who likes strong ales not rate this a perfect a beer? I really couldn't ask for more. Lagunitas does it again.

Great beer. An inch or more head in the beer. Very very smooth, great color and amazing smell. The after taste is a little buttery but overall one of the top 5 beers I've ever had. Only bad thing about this beer is that it's limited release I say year round! Cheers!
