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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

Clean, dark copper color. Aromatic hops waft from the glass as soon as I start pouring - grapefruit, pine and herbs(not herb.) Strong alcohol and bitter flavors, with a little sweet caramel malt. A very slight higher alcohol off-flavor, paint thinner? Drink it fresh for a DIPA effect, but I bet it would age beautifully for years.

Amber pour. My first Lagunitas and didn’t know what to expect. This was a way pleasant surprise. Sweet malts on the front end with a welcome hop punch in the finish. Awesome ale.

On tap at The Beer Store in Southampton, PA. Lagunitas is just incredible. Always knows how to take pine, citrus, and malts and make something awesome. A little too much alcohol bite, but still very enjoyable.
