Cool orange glow, aroma was a lot of hops, standard complex Lagunitas blend.

Taste was sweet, citrus, bitter. Good mix of fruit esters. A worthy beer to check out should they make it again, better than the average fusion beers I've had.

Poured on tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, copper-gold coloring, with a fluffy, filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of heavy resin, dank pine, and tart grapefruit forward, with a subtle caramel backbone. Flavors are a blast of pine needles and pitch forward, with a subtle pepper spicing, solid dose of tart citrus, and subtle cracker and caramel backbone. Smooth and crisp body, with a solidly bitter and citrus tart aftertaste. Lemongrass sneaks in there at the end. Dry, crisp, bitter finish. Great beer.
