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.

Look - hazy light amber, a more unfiltered or homebrew look.
Smell - A sweet smelling malt and hops blended smell slightly hops forward
Taste- Likable, sweet honey or sweet malty with some slight piney but a more pronounced citrus flavor
Feel - Heavy, dessert feel, slight dry finish, not a hot summer day quencher but not unpleasent.
Overall - I will buy this again when the price is right.
