Poured into a wine/snifter/tulip

A - a golden copper sunset, two finger bright white head and some sugar lacing.

S - really nice funk up front, very hoppy, island fruits, banana bread, very floral, tart island fruits, fresh cut grass, toasted malts/grains, sweet pineapple, pear and more funk

T - a fruity/funky/floral hop, sour grass, toasted malts/grains, brown sugar, Belgian yeast, pineapple/grapefruit hops, soil, hoppy and more funk

M - medium minus body, well balanced, nice complexity, medium plus carbonation, medium acidity and a sugary/sour to hop bite finish.

D/O - perfect spring and summer beer. Very refreshing easy to drink for the hop head and novice alike. Has a lot going on without being overly complex and just a couple will get you very relaxed. Great with almost every kind of food but, sushi and bbq are my favorite.

Final thoughts - At only $9 a sixer and a nice 8.5% abv this is a wonderful ale -- it only begs the question why not this year-round and its counterpart be the limited release.

A - nice golden amber color that's clear with a white head on it that doesn't stick for too long but leaves a good ring of lacing
S - Dank, peach, grapefruit, garlic/onion (in a good way).
T - basically same as the smell. dank, grapefruit, orange zest, peach, garlic/onion much more subdued than the smell
M - medium mouthfeel. aftertaste is bitter, grapefruit. alc is completely covered
O - great beer from lagunitas, up there with sucks, pliny, ruination

Pours a golden color with a light haze. Aroma of resin & sweet malts. Flavor is piny, a little citrus and a touch of malts. Leaves a nice hoppy aftertaste. A little crisp finish but very pleasing. This is a very delicious beer
