Poured a rich, deep amber with a quarter inch cream head. Aroma heavy with fruit and alcohol. A little thick on the tongue, but what a flavor! The combination of fruits, sugars, and biting hops played very well together. Definitely a long sipper but well worth it.

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 don’t care for the hopping of this beer. Has a bright and fruity character.

Resiny, piney, grassy aroma. Pours a clear dark copper with a thick light tan head that fades very slowly leaving a thin coating on the glass. Pine, orange. Silky smooth mouthfeel with a sharp finish. Boozy finish.

A very interesting brew. Doesn’t smell or taste like anything i’ve had before. The brown sugar is definitely there, not sure what to think of this one just yet.

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.
It’s one of the tastiest seasonals around. Lagunitas are really spectacular!
