WTF Ale. A malty, robust, jobless Recovery Ale! We’re not quite in the Red, or in the Black... Does that mean we’re in the Brown?

A big Ol’ Imperial Brown Ale to help you with your slipperly slide on into springtime. Rich, smooth, dangerous & chocolatey.

A- Pours a ruddy brown hue with a 1.5 finger tan head which sticks around for a while. S- Hops, hops and more hops. Grapefruit with hints of caramel. T- Deep malty goodness runs through followed by a wall of grapefruity hops. M- Medium bodied with medium carbonation. D- An extremely drinkable brew, especially for the price. Lagunitas rarely disappoints and this is no exception.

hotstuff (4840) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Rated on 10-23-2010. This bottled beer pours a medium sized beige fizzy head with a short retention, transparent amber body, fizzy carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The aromas are citrus, pine, bitter, earthy hops, malt, and chocolate. The taste is bitter, malty, chocolate, citrus, and pine hops. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. Wow! This is another tasty beer as the hops are upfront in the aroma and flavor but not overdone. The flavors meet together very nicely. This is a well rounded beer that is worth trying and a beer that I would certainly drink again.

Backlog. Bottle tried @ Green Lion Inn 2011. One of the better ’imperial’ brown ales i’ve had. Haven’t seen it since though.

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
P: Red tinted brown opaque body with streaming bubbles. Almost a full finger of frothy tan head that settles to a choppy wake and leaves bubbly lacing draped on the edge. S: Lime, grapefruit, roasty notes, rye bread, chopped nuts, hints of cocoa powder, cinnamon and dirty earthy yeast. T/M: Taste follows the nose with the same roasted malts, citrus hops and pine oil. Oily feel with an aggressive sting of carbonation. Woody spiced alcohol sting in the back of the throat once warmed. Finishes dry with an aftermath of citrus hops and toasted dark bread. O: A great hopped up brown ale with divinely balanced flavors. I love roasty bready malt with citrus hops. This is a beer that I would regularly drink. Doggone good!

Bottled in Feb 2012 Pours a nice brown with a solid sheet of light tan foam. Smells robustly hoppy with some resin and tea. Nice malty background as well, burnt caramel and crystal malts. The flavor is malt first, slightly oxidized with a good helping of bitter and noble hops. Some grass and pekoe, nice flavor; just what I was looking for this morning honestly, glad I chose this one. Medium bodied with slightly hi carb and a wet finish. I like this beer, would actually like it more with a couple more months I’d guess. Good stuff. Serving type: bottle 06-03-2012
