Bought this by accident from a sketchy liquor store in North Philadelphia while traveling. I thought, "Great! Little Sumpin' Sumpin'," one of my then favorites. Perhaps it was the bleak surroundings. Perhaps it was the fact that I had to pay through bullet proof glass. Perhaps it was the many patrons' affinity for St. Ides, but this struck me as a craft malt liquor. Others seem to like it, but it just wasn't my thing at the time. Maybe a different environment would improve it for me.

And let me be clear: I often enjoy double IPAs.

A yellow beer, a shade more gold in it than the single version. The alcohol is in fact more noticeable in the aroma on this one.

Taste is nice, but the alcohol of this one transforms a run of the mill drinking experience into one engaging in sips instead of swigs. It has plenty of hops, Lagunitas always does that well, but for me the thing that makes this a lesser is the amount of perceptible alcohol. Kinda weird, Waldo's is more alcohol, but it just doesn't come through as much as this one. Still good beer, but not the first one I reach for from the Lagunitas portfolio.
