Poured from a 22oz bottle a dark amber with a reddish tint and an off-white head. Aroma was caramel malt and floral/piney hops. Flavor was malty with a bitter hop and a bit of toffee in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into a tiny plastic lager mug at Brew Fest in Athens, GA. The previous comments comparing this to a dipa are on track, although this proved less bitter and fuller in its malt profile than did other dipas at the Brew Fest. Amber-red in the ridiculously tiny mug from which I drank it, this went down smoothly despite the noticeable alcohol burn. A fine asa, and another worthy offering from Lagunitas.

Pineapple and burnt sugar for aroma. Deep amber in hue with an off white head. Very sweet with a decent amount of hops. I wouldn’t want more the one because of the sweetness. My least favorite Lagunitas Seasonal but still, not a bad Brew.

12 oz bottle - pours clearish crimson-orange, medium white head, mostly lasting. Cool rainfall lacing. Creamy orangey hops and good malts and biscuit on the nose. Nice, balanced palate. Grassy notes, oranges, and little citrus. Herby finish. Good deal.

Very beautiful cascading reddish amber. Lots of hops, like a Double IPA. Bitterness swells up and stays around. Very tasty brew, lots of flavors hard to pick out. Creamy palate, very full bodied. Real nice job, impressive considering how much hops and alcohol must be packed into this.

on tap at O’Briens. Just have to say this is definitely one of the coolest bottles i’ve seen in a long time... the labeling is just great! Ok, to the rating... pours a clear brown color with a small, thin head. Aroma is nutty and malty with a slight sweet note at the end. Flavor is malty and sweet with a slightly grassy hint that lingers at the end. Very smooth and slightly bubbly on the palate. I enjoyed this beer more than I thought i would and i’m duly impressed with their form of protest to their shutdown last year!
