COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Here’s Lookin’ Atcha’!"

Laying there, staring up at the ceiling, head pounding, last night was a dim recollection. How did he get home? Was he alone? Looking to the left and right, the answer was yes, maybe. His head was full of ’rag water, bitters, and the blue ruin’.His teeth felt like he’d been chewing aluminum and his breath smelled like a burning tractor tire. There was a wrenching knot somewhere between his liver and East St. Louis and he couldn’t be sure whether or not he’d wet himself. A yellow sine wave rang in his ears so loud nit made his teeth itch and he was sure that if he touched his skin anywhere it would induce a rhythmic retching jag. Even in the face of all that, he found himself smiling at the realization that today represented the fresh breast of a new year- an undiscovered country- and also there was still one warm, half-full, flat redolent Hairy Eyeball on the nightstand. Yes-there is a God.

mreeves (274) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2006
Brownish color, light on carbonation but appropriately so. A complex, rich, fruity flavor, with some nice hop flavor coming through at the end. This is a very nice beer, especially for the price. I still say Lagunitas offers the best value of any brewery around and this is a good example of that.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 Pours a rich dark amber color w/ a very shy, inferior, shortlived froth that reduces fast to nothing. Mild aromas of bloated sweetness. Full nectar w/ good carbonation. This brew is rich and sweet w/ a moderate hop bittering component. Caramel, brandy, cherries, and leather. The finish is bittered well w/ lingering soupy sweetness.

FoolishMortal (989) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 13, 2006
12oz. bottle. Dark red brown, slightly murky. Small tan head. Syrupy malty, pear, apple, and some citric hop aromatics. Earthy malt, tinges of fruit peel astringency. Spicy and slightly herbal hop characters peer through, particularly in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium heavy, slightly dry.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Pours clear mahogany with a small tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is malts, malts, and some fruits. Taste is more of the same, but with a handful of hops thrown in. The alcohol is more prevalent when the beer warms. A strong ale that could pass as a lighter barleywine.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 18/20
harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2006
This was a big one, with deep malty aromas that entice your palate inviting you to take a drink and order another. Aroma of fresh bread, fruit and some pine needles mixed with a little grapefruit and pineapple. Themouthfeel is almost too much too handle, lots of dark fruits, burnt toast, a little hot in the aftertaste, but it lingers on and on long after you have swallowed. Do not take this one lightly, it will put you over the edge.
