COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lagunitas enlisted a mix of members from bands and music & beer sites to not only brew CouchTrippin’ Fusion Ale, but create a special variation of it for each show. Bands included Allen Stone, The Mowgli’s and Tumbleweed Wanderers. Plus beer minds from DC Beer, Beer Street Journal, Kim’s Bay Brews and Good Beer Hunting; and music-centric folks from FILTER Magazine, Brightest Young Things and Consequence of Sound. CouchTrippin’ Fusion Ale is dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Mosaic hops.

Sampled at Elijah Ps during their pre opening event. Not all that dark, more amber. Fruity hops and earth. More hops that malts. Earth and smoothness. Citrus is gentle but nice. Very unique and interesting. I would not guess porter as a style. I like it.

12/23/14. On tap at Bier Stube, Moline with Mrs. Owl and my dad. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Okay aroma, a little dank, citrus, caramel. Great flavor, very dank, plenty of tropical fruit, enough caramel and doughy malts to balance enohgh without taking over. Tasty.

There just is some weird underarm flavor in lagunita I just don't like. This isn't a bad beer but just something isn't my thing. Good head. Nearly good except for the arm pit ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Thirsty Monk Biltmore Park. Pretty good for the style. Pours a murky brown with a khaki head. Interesting mix of hops, but works. Super charged Mosaic-" first born child of Simcoe"- is tempered by crispness and white wine notes of Nelson Sauvin. Starts with the pine/citrus/ stonefruit/ earthy/ leafy notes of Mosaic and finishes nice and crisp. Drinks somewhat malty and very smooth. Medium mouthfeel. Not overly carbonated. One of the more interesting brown ales I have had.

phaleslu (7173) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Draft at Sonka Irish Pub. Pours a clear deep amber with a finger of frothy khaki head that leaves lace that Never settles. Notes of tea, leafy and citrusy hops, brown sugar, toasted and chocolate malts. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Nice sweet (malty) and hoppy balance.

Tap at Oblivion. Pours a dark gold with fluffy head. Huge berry, stone fruit and melon hop aroma. Light clean dry body with light hop bitterness. Refreshing.
