Served on tap in a pint glass

A - Clear dark amber with one finger eggshell head, moderate head retention and minimal lacing.

S - Spicy hoppiness with hints of pine and big malt tones.

T - Nice robust hoppy flavors with a malty balance. Not too strong but a nice EtOH touch as well.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation with a dry finish

O - Nice balance bear, I would drink this again.

22 oz. Bottle poured into mug

A - dark brown with a little tint of red when held up to the light, formed a small amount of light tan head which dissipated quickly

S - The smell is not very strong but includes some roasted sugar smells and a small amount of hops

T - Malts are most prominent here, with roasted malts prevalent and even a little molasses/caramel flavors. bitterness from hops also acts to balance the sweetness.

M - medium-full body good amount of carbonation

O - enjoyable beer

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a reddish brown with a small off white head
S: Not much of a smell going on, huge nose when I opened the bottle of caramel and hop bitterness that reminded me of arrogant bastard
T: Oily hop flavor with a bit of pine along with a solid backbone of caramel sweetness. Toasted caramel flavor on the swallow with just a hint of bitterness
M: full bodied and a little oily, carb is a bit prickly but not over the top. very smooth mouthfeel overall
O: another delightful beer from Lagunitas. These folks never seem to disappoint

22oz bottle (ca. March 2011) into a tulip. Pours a clear amber brown w/ a thick khaki head.

Aroma is malty, floral, a little hoppy. Some orange & spice.

Taste is a good blend of caramel malt and hops. Some faint toffee/vanilla notes, fruity. Thick coating mouthfeel.

Overall a nice beer to sip on a chilly January night when the predictions for a massive snowstorm have been greatly exaggerated - WTF?!?
