4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very Complex. Rich, full bodied flavor - lots of hops but not bitter - an earlier comment said that this had an aroma of BBQ sauce - I would go a step further and say it actually has a slight TASTE of BBQ sauce. In a good way. I think. Definitely an earthy caramel flavor to balanced the hops. My original reaction was that I would not want more than one of these at once, but this beer has so much going on that a second bottle may be required. .

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: This beer smells amazing. Pine and caramel with floral undertones in the nose.
Appearance: Reddish with a beautiful head and long lasting lacing.
Taste. Up front caramel with a touch of bread backed by resin, pine and flowers. Aftertaste is really long and the alcohol is not well hidden at all. In fact it’s kind of a put off.
Palate: sticks around too ling with too much burn. Heavy alcohols
Overall: Definitely not my favorite lagunitas beer.

Bottle 355ml, from Systembolaget. Clear copper with a white head. Grassy, citrus, pine, grapefruit, some raisin, caramel. More general fruit characteristics and maltiness when it warms up. Medium body, round, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Some warmness, a bit of alcohol in the nose, but not in the mouth. Nice, would buy again.

Aroma is very light citrus, resin, and caramelly toffee notes. The flavor is citrus up front, then the toffee malt kicks in followed by a slight caramel note. The abv is hidden very well. Be careful with this beer!! It’s very tasty and very potent.

Pours a medium brown, with a beige head. Aroma is malty, caramel, brown sugar, and some grapefruit. Flavor is fruity, malty, and mildly sweet. Finishes a little astringent, and hoppy, but not bad. Overall very smooth and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep mahogany brown. Nose is hot booze, toffee, and tobacco. Flavor follows, nice round palate, and bitter hop finish. A bit on the sweet side to be a real but still a great affordable brew.
