Hello California, send more Lagunitas to the East coast! Nice hoppy brown ale with props to Scotland. Sweet malt, caramel, hops, a wee bit of smoke, and a very nice palate, I could become addicted to this fine ale. After three or four of these, would be inclined to lift my kilt.

Pailhead (6358) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2010
Bottle: The aroma is mostly dominated by grapefruit hoppiness along with light caramel, and a hint of pine. It pours a transparent reddish-brown with an inch tall off white head that fades a thick film within thirty seconds or so. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel with a hint of fruit in the background. The finish has moderate grapefruit and citrus notes and an increased fruit presence. The fruitiness in the finish becomes more prominent as it warms. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation and creamy mouthfeel.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - APR 27, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 on tap. Kind of a weird one. nutty alc aroma, pours lighter than expected, clearruby red when held up to a light with an off white head. flavor is sweet brown aley, medium bodied. hops are throughout but not as bitter as expected. sweet malt flavor dominates, the hops are more there to balance than to shock. gets syrupy as it warms up. slight smokiness is noted and welcomed. alc burn is more than you’d expect for almost 8%, made me think this beer was really huge. big hop finish. rough around the edges but fun

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - APR 26, 2010
bottle poured a light cola brown color with a thin off white head. aroma has typical lagunitas hops, pine resins, citrus, thick brown malt, and some caramel sweetness. mouth feel is medium and is smooth on the tongue. flavor has a brown malted core, resins, pine, hefty citrus, and a nice bite on the finish. I personally really like the hops they throw in all there beers.

22 ounce bottle from City Beer in San Fran. Pours a dark copper hue with a large off-white head. The aroma is rich caramel and large citrus malts. A sweet flavor citrus hops and massive caramel hops, a bitter finish. A smooth ASA. Nice.

bubbleflubber (2144) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2010
Pours a nice deep amber into the glass, with a substantive frothy eggshell head. The nose is of citrus zest and peel, with a big bouquet of fresh pine. Toasted malts to the tongue, some cherry and a nice plethora of pine hopping to bitter the peppering finish. This coats the tongue, but is also a very smooth pull. Good texture and complexity, medium- to full-bodied, and very drinkable. I like this a lot and will definitely have again.

ryane. (12) - Riverside, California, USA - APR 25, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2010 Lagunitas’ Wilco Tango Foxtrot pours a dark reddish-brown, with a minimal tan foam. The Aroma is mostly malty, consisting of roasty, caramel, floral, citrus, and alcohol hints. The flavor consists of a light sweetness, medium sourness, heavy bitterness. The palate is medium bodied and chewy with an average carbonation and bitter finish. Overall, WTF is a unique, complex, Amercian strong ale that’s well worth giving a try.

On draft at OTH. Pours deep amber red with an off-white head. Nose is malt, some tart citrus, some toasted malt, lots of pine and floral hops. Flavor is lots of dark malt, pine, and floral hops. Huge malt backbone hugs the palate while the hops assault. Medium-bodied and enjoyable hopped up ale.

Beer looked great in glass amber/brown in color. Hops were bold in both aroma and taste.
