Lagunitas hitting a home run here. Not quite brown in color, but hitting all the marks for a nice malty beer. All the way around, a beautiful and tasty beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Couch trippin Petaluma: Draft at Lagunitas. Typical amber color, but a different beast altogether. Low hops. something akin to a manhattan. I beleive they said it was barreled, and it tastes like a hybrid cocktail/beer. Not bad, but not up to par with their fresh hoppy goodnes

Keep this experiment back in the tester! Brown ruddy color, translucent, oyster head, good lacing. Way to ruin a brown ale! It could be decent if it wasn’t dry-hopped, although perhaps it was flawed from the beginning. Typically lagunitas hoppiness, although it’s all wrong in this recipe. No malt backbone because they didn’t want to over-ferment it. Keep out hops!! Begone!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Pours a brownish red hue with a fizzy, eggshell head that sticks around for quite a while.
S- Slightly roasty, indistinct sweetness.
T- Roasted malt, hints of orange, fairly one dimensional. Some light residual sweetness on the back end.
M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation.
D- Fairly easy drinker. Sessionable but not something I would choose over any other beer from lagunitas.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Publik House. Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head. Roasted malt in the note with a hint of brown sugar. Very light bodied and smooth finish. Not much punch that Lagunitas normally has but a nice, light brew!
