4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a bright orangey-reddish brown with thick and decently lasting tan head that leaves thick sheets of lace on the glass. Aroma is awesome with an amazing blend of spicy. piney hops with sticky, citrus, candy malts. The flavor starts off with a killer duo of candy malt and nice spicy evergreen characters. Almost to mid-palate, there’s a really bready malt character and a citrus rind bitterness enters. Just past mid-palate, there’s a firm but pleasant bitterness with more bready malts - but the sweetness is now subsiding. The finish is dry and spicy with a pine needle bitterness. The finish is very long and has a grapefruit aftertaste. The mouthfeel is lively and bubbly with a full and creamy body. Overall, a delicious imperial amber - perhaps a triple amber? Reminds me of their Imperial Red. Delicious but its strength catches up with you - it tastes drinkable at first, but before you finish your first one, you realize that its 9+%...

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Whetsone Station, Brattleboro VT. Poured a beautiful murky brown with a thick off white head into a goblet. This stuff is very tasty. Huge pine notes similar to a DIPA but lots of other flavors in there too. Definite alcohol burn to be expected. Overall great but be careful it will knock you over.

A sumptuous assault of breadcrumbs, caramel, pine, booze, yeast, and autumnal leaves.

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.

This brown beer has a very sweet aroma. It hits your tongue very smooth and finishes with a nice bitterness which isn't over powering.

Bottle; Color: Dusty amber. Aroma: Sour fruit/ grapefruit. Flavor: Strong, sour fruit. Strong flavor definitely has a higher alcohol content, a bit boozy with a relatively mild finish.

Undercover is everything Lagunitas is. Pine, caramel, bitter, robust and thick with citrus undertones. My #1 above a distant Shugga.
