Malty, slightly resiny nose. Beautiful burnt orange color. Interesting balance between toasty, malty sweetness and resiny, grassy hops. Overall, it looks great and tastes good, but not really a huge fan.

Bottle. Dark amber, half finger head. Smells of sweet apple, hops. Taste is bitter and bubbley up front, a nice hop bite and sweetness to finish it off. Has a nice finish, can feel the hops in the throat. A good beer, haven't had anything quite like it. A nice IBU for hopheads like me.

From bottle to tulip. Beautiful looking reddish gold brown color. Aroma was spicy with hops. I am saying it is a good beer but not my style. I prefer IPAs and belgiums over an american ale.

12oz bottle from my brother. Pint glass.
Appearance: Pours an amber hue wih nice clarity. A one finger beige head. Leaves a ring of rentention. Spotty lacing.
Aroma: Citrus and piney hops. Caramel malts.
Taste: Citrusy, somewhat sweet hops. A little bit of piney bitterness. Excellent balance with smooth caramel malts.
Mouthfeel: Smooth creamy, Perfect mouthfeel. Medium bodied with good carbonation and a lingering hoppy yet balanced finish. The malts and hops just blend seamlessly. This is truly a beer with balance.
Will probably buy my own sixer of this.

Bottle. I really enjoyed this one. Way to go, Lagunitas! Sugar hop scent over an amber pour with a foamy head, slight lacing. Medium body, semi sticky. Hop forward taste, slightly bitter, with a sweetness in the middle, and a grapefruit finish. Excellent!

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2012 Pours orangey and average head. Smell is initially piney and mustard-seed from the bottle, but it becomes more floral and refreshing in the glass - good. Taste is sweet (hey, itís Lagunitas!), peach mostly, and some potent ABV. Fruity, but still ale-like, and not artificial at all. Like this one - a welcome change of pace from my usual IPA, APA, and Belgian biases, even if it isnít quite mind-blowing.
