A - deep red-brown ale with a sticky ivory head
S - citric nose with plenty of caramel and rye possibly
T - huge flavors here: burnt caramel, rye, faint chocolate, sticky pungent hops that are piney and citric
M - very resinous full body; hop oils stick to the palate, finishes bitter with some residual sweetness from the heavy malt backbone
O - way better than I remember in comparison to the first time I had it. Reminds me a bit of Lucky 13. Excellent!

Pours a brownish copper with about a finger of head. There are both malty and hoppy notes on the nose. The flavor profile is a solid blend of chocolate malt and earthy hops. The body is right-on for the style.

A - Pours a clear dark brown with a three finger foamy white head. Tons of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is grapefruit, pine and resinous hops.

T - The taste starts with brown sugar, caramel and toffee before giving way to the grapefruit and piney hops. The finish has a light hop bitterness.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Soft creamy mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - Definetly an interesting take on a brown ale. The flavors are remind me more of a Barleywine than brown. Nevertheless another solid Lagunitas beer.
