Pour is brown with orange hues and thin tight head that dissapears to a film on top. Scents of roasted malts spice and hops. I get a mixture of grapfruit dirt like malt and some sweet flowers honey too. Palate is a real chaulky feel kind of sticky and dry swallow.

This is another solid beer at a very reasonable price from Lagunitas. I’m always amazed how good these beers are for how low-priced they are. Best value of any brewery. This one is a dark amber/brownish color, not much head to it. Describes itself as malty, but there are plenty of hops in here too. Caramel malt flavor is first, then a piney hops flavor comes through toward the end. Fairly unique, but very solid.

A gorgeous deep, rich dark amber colour with a moderate head. Lots of caramel and hops in the nose, plus a little spice I think. Nicely balanced with a decent bitter finish but overall there’s something missing... that indefinable ’it’ that makes a good beer a great beer.

Reddish maple colored with thin white head. sweet floral and citrus hop aroma. Taste is malty, but hop forward sweet, with candied grapefruit, and caramel malts. Makes me think cloying, but it never quite gets there, thanks to the hops.$5/22oz

Malty strong ale that is not overpowering. Really nice hoppy aroma (simcoe?). Brown ale? Didn’t get that.

Bottle. Pours amber-brown with an off-white head. Flavor is brown sugar/molasses, spice, malt, and hops. Cool beer.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Very malty, but bitey. Strongly carbonated. This one i could drink all day. Lots of caramel balanced with a great hopiness. A great marriage of an IPA and a brown. Delicious and drinkable.

A reddish-brown beer with a small head. The aroma is very citrusy and piney. I like how it does not look like it would smell the way it does, nice hoppy aroma. The taste is a nice citrusy hop taste with some pine with a moderate bitterness.

22 oz. bottle from Mac’s on West Peachtree. Fluffy head is starting to break-away. Nice translucent brown body. This fucker is reminding me of Arrogant Bastard i.e. this is a great looking beer. Nice pungent and resinous grapefruit/citrus hop aroma. Sharp pine aroma cuts through the citrus; damn, this thing fresh, smell amazing. It’s as if I am opening a pouch of hops purchased for home-brewing purposes. The hops dominate, without much of a malt presence. I am dissatisfied with the aroma whatsoever. Excellent flavor. I thought the hop presence was going to be overpowering, but it is actually quite mellow. You’re still able to taste the resinous pine and grapefruit citrus hop flavors, but it is also balanced out by a rather subtle sweet malt flavor, that doesn’t get in the way. In fact, I am not tasting much of anything other than the hop flavor. I do get some residual sweet flavors from the malts, but again, this beer is centered on the hops.
