From the bottle, pours an amber color with a creamy white head that lasts. The nose is both hoppy and malty at the same time. Mouthfeel is medium. The flavors are very complex. Forward malty sweetness, followed by citrusy hoppiness and finishing somewhat sweet.

Damn great stuff from Lagunitas. This is somewhere inbetween Sucks and NightTime. Malt forward, without getting bready. Sweet, without getting cloying. Caramel, sugar. Hop forward, great balanced carbonation. Pours a beautiful brown-red.
Itís one of the tastiest seasonals around. Lagunitas are really spectacular!
