COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AKA Holiday Ale
AKA Holiday Leftover Ale
AKA Brown Sugar Substitute

This sad holiday season we didn’t have the brewing capacity to make our favorite seasonal brew, the widely feared BrownShugga’ Ale. You see we had a couple of really good years (thank you very much) and so heading into this season while we are awaiting the January delivery of a new brewhouse we are jammin’ along brewing 80 barrels of IPA and PILS and such every 3 hours. A couple of months back we realized that since we can only brew a mere 60 barrels of Shugga’ every 5 hours, that we were seriously screwed. For every case of Shugga’ brewed, we’d short 3 cases of our favorite daily beers. It’s a drag. This year, we brewed something that we think is also cool and brews more like our daily brews. The new brewhouse will help insure this kind of failure never happens again. It’s a mess that we can not brew our BrownShugga’ this year and we suck for not doing it. There is nothing cool about screwing this up this badly and we know it. Maybe we can sue our own sorry selves. There is no joy in our hearts this holiday and the best we can hope for is a quick and merciful end. F*@& us. This totally blows. Whatever. We freaking munch moldy donkey butt and we just want it to be all over...
So this substitute beer is a ‘Cereal Medley’ of Barley, Rye, Wheat, and Oats…. Full of complexishness from the 4 grains, and weighing in at 7.85% abv, Then joyously dry-hopped for that big aroma and resinous hop flavor.

Flaska från SB. Doftar mango, tallbarr, kåda och citrus. Värmande och kraftigt besk smak. Denna matchas med en medelhög sötma. Lite torr i slutet.

Pours a clear, but lightly hazy orange. Thin white head. Aroma is very floral and citrus filled. Flavor offers a nice balance. As much as they do suck, this is a nice beer!

Thios is a great beer! There is just the right balance to give it an even body. Malt white fruits, pineaple on the tongue. Finishes crisp, sharp and cleanly bitter at the end.

hazy pale yellow with a bit of an orange hue. Very hoppy, double-IPA type palate with a piney, resin and citrus peel aroma. Fairly lingering finish of pine. resinous, oily mouthfeel.

On tap from a cask in Vegas. That’ll alter this rating in the positive direction a bit - but this is an awesome beer.

Golden with a thick white head. Aroma is piney hops with a bit of resinous sap. Flavor is restrained pine hops with a somewhat sweet malt backbone. Very drinkable. Wife: 3.75

HighlanderOne (1062) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Poured from bottle. Citrus and pine hops in aroma. Good lookin cloudy gold with lasting head. Not the hop Bomb I expected, but I taste the citrus / pine hops with a very creamy malt base. Also tasting notes of peach, pepper and maybe a hint of coriander. Very easy to drink for a strong ale. As usual, another excellent beer from LBC.

Type: Draft Glass: Mason jar From: Ciro’s Pizza Price: $6.50 Misc.: As part of Lagunitas Tap Takeover Night at Ciro’s Pizza; Got to keep the Lagunitas mason jar Poured a golden orange color with one finger of white head when I got it. Good circular lacing on the sides all the way down. Average-to-above average retention on the top. Holy bitter hops on the nose! Got healthy doses of pine, citrus (grapefruit, lemon) and floral hops. Also some resin. Very flavorful, definitely the best part of the beer. Tasted bitter grapefruit hops right from the beginning, but not too lingering. Sweet floral taste as well. Also orange pulp. Reminded me a lot of the Daytime IPA. Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. I really, really liked this beer. Nice and smooth and would love to have it again. Well done Lagunitas.
