COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aborted batch of their Old Gnarleywine ended up tasting nearly as good as that they were hoping for, so they bottled it. God bless capitalism. OG 1.100 IBU 51.1

bigwesticle (37) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Love having Lagunitas in TN now. Beautiful copper orange clear pour with a frothy white head. Citrus, caramel, bananas, and resin on the nose. Not as sweet as I expected, which is good in my opinion. Definitely an IIPA/Barley Wine hybrid... leaving more towards the double ipa side. Syrupy hoppy subdued sweetness with some malty bananas in the back ground. Absolutely delicious brew.

bnokk (276) - Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2015
APPEARANCE - light brown with amber tones. NOSE - very little, the slightest hit of malt sweetness. FLAVOR - exceptionally smooth. I would NEVER guess it belongs in a sniffer. Very clean drinker with nice malt flavor and sweetness and a very low bitterness to balance it out. NOTES - lives up to its reputation for an amazing malty ale that can lead to trouble.

12 oz bottle. At the Kerho, Tampere, Finland. Clear red amber color with a small light tan head. Sweet sugary malty aroma. The flavor is strong hops, moderate bitterness, sweetness and more sweetness and malt. Super sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle@1pint. Brown nutty colour. Malty, light greens herbals, brown bready nose. Some dry dark fruits,bit dadely, pines. Med full bodied, well bittered. Some sweets, but quite easy going overall, and bitter rather than cloying. Finishes with a little roast, herby pines. Really nice drinkable malty brown ale.

The caramels and dark crystal malts.the deeps sugar meets the well balanced hops that are grapefruit, passionfruit and lemon grass . Appearance is a lightly hazed amber body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
