Bottle. Very little head but a bit fizzy. The smell is extremely hoppy. Was a little questionable at first but finishes smooth. Strong alcohol content. Not for the inexperienced beer drinker but one I would recommend trying.

Pours a light brown with medium head and lacing. Taste of caramel, biscuits, and balanced well with hops. This one does not taste like a beer that's 9.9 abv. You can get in trouble with this one. Solid beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour - clear amber with a robust light tan head that recedes slowly into a thick film that might last until rapture if I allowed it to. Aroma is sweet malt, hops, bit of roastiness, biscuit, and yeasty...odd stuff, but its good enough. Flavor is sweet up front, gets a bit bitter later on, and finishes with a hoppy note...the brown sugar sweetness is evident but doesnít dominate. Slightly boozy at the finish as well. High level of carbonation. Unique brew that Iím happy to have once in a while...and the price point on this one, like others from Lagunitas, remains solid!

Iíve been typically underwhelmed by Lagunitas vs the hype. I really did like this one though. Very east to drink at 9.9%. I typically donít lime sweeter beers but this one works.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Pours a clear copper color. Thin off-white head with plenty of lacing. Aroma is sweet, sugar, caramel and malt. Sweet, caramel, brown sugar, malty and some booze. I donít care for the hopping of this beer. Has a bright and fruity character.
