22oz bottle at Redlight. Big brown pour with a thick off white head. Nice citrus hop aroma and lots of malt. Spicy hops, big malt body. Good brew.

Thanks to hudsonphotog for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark, reddish-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is a nice mix of piney hops and caramel malt. The flavor is big time orange citrus and pine hops with a strong caramel malt backbone. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

aroma is a solid pine. pours a dark orange. taste is a middle bitterness that lingers but doesn’t destroy the palate. nicely balanced.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2010
Thanks Hayduke! Dark brown and clear with plenty of red, moderate carbonation floats up, a one and a half finger of tan head has strong retention. A nice hop/malt balance in the nose. Molasses, citrus, pine but nothing big or aggressive. The flavor is bigger and quite nice. Hops offer pine and tart citrus and there is a strong maltiness. A bit of chocolate adds some complexity. This beer moves cycles from the malt, to the hops, to the chocolate, and then it cycles again. A very tasty beer and a fun beer to drink. The sum is better than the parts here.

Transparent light brown pour, with a mid-sized tan head. Nice and malty, but with enough hops to keep it crisp -- brown sugar and light molasses, with maybe a bit of vanilla in here... but really not at all overbearingly sweet. the alcohol is apparent, but only just - this is something like a blend of brown shugga with a hoppy barleywine. Tasty, and I really like how crisp it stays given the fact they tout the malt contingent.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 18, 2010
Big tan head, clear brown body, aroma is clean hop fruit, flavor is rich malts and huge bitters, much more roasted than I expected, chocolatey and hoppy, quite interesting and very aggresive, some hot alcohols burn the throat as well, not an easy drinking beer but an experience, well worth your $4 even if you are jobless

This is still the standout brewery when it comes to value. I think this was 4.99 a bomber. A pretty deep brown but if you hold it up to light you can catch the mega carbonation going on here. Faint pine nose. Flavor is a lot of nut and caramel malt. Muted band aid kind of hops on the back end with a touch of pine again here. Yeast is adding a strange funkiness as well to the back of the palate. An all too easy too drink and slightly hoppy beer. Something I can get behind pretty much any time.

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2010
Bottle from Cavie. Red pour with a small white head. Aroma is earth hops, orange, tart, almost funky. Taste is orange zest, brown sugar, alcohol, and earthy.

egajdzis (5312) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2010
Brown chestnut color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, citrus, caramel malts, tobacco, grass, and light alcohol. Taste of caramel malts, nuts, tobacco, citrus fruits, piney resin, and a moderately bitter hoppy finish.

"Burgundy in color with a foamy light tan head and plenty of sticky lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma as one would expect from Lagunitas coupled with nuts and light roast. Medium bodied, nicely bitter with a sweet finish. Mild toasted malt flavors with a hint of chocolate and coffee which are soon washed away by a heavy American hop presence. "
