brown pour with a thick off white head. aroma is very sweet malt, nuts and caramel. light woody and citrus hop. flavour is caramel sweet malt, some black tea tones, balancing citrus hopiness in the finish leaves a bit of a confusing aftertaste.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2010
UPDATED: APR 8, 2010 Thanks to JaBier for sharing a bottle. The beer is a chestnut color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Grassy hops aroma with notes of malt and citrus. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops presence and flavors of citrus, pale malt and caramel. The finish is toasted malt and hops with a lingering bitterness left behind. Above average overall.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2010
Bottle. Pour was medium copper with a light head. Aroma was of bread, herbal hops, light caramel, and citrus. Flavors were well balanced with a strong, up front bitterness that mellowed quickly into the light caramel and malty body. Nice, light carbonation and a nice job for the brew.

ttutony (759) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2010
Medium brown in the glass with a very thin head. Fruity hop aromas with just a hint of caramel malt. Nice balance on the palate between hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Great value for the price.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 6, 2010
Pours brown with a white head. Smells of caramel, earthy, rosey. Tastes of caramel, earth, tea with some weird boozy elements. I usuallu enjoy Lagunitas’ creations, but this isn’t one of them.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2010
This poured a solid red with two fingers of head. The lacing on the glass is rather smooth and creamy. Aroma has a good bit of floral hops. Taste has a nice mixture of the sweeter malts typical in a brown ale but they are decently counterbalanced by the hops. The mouthfeel is also quite pleasant.

Tasted 3/27/10. Bomber. Filtered with a dark amber hue. Layer of off-white head. Aromas of citrus and grapefruit with a piney grassy note. Medium to full bodied. Big hops on a base of toasty, cocoa malts. Nicely bitter and very dry. Nicely bitter palate. Rye toast and grapefruit with a splash of orange. Sticky and lingering. This is just a fun drinking beer!

coldbrewky (1491) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - APR 6, 2010
Here we go again....Lagunitas pushing me about the house with a good buzz going. Bomber from the rip and run. Pours a deep tea brown. Thin edgy head after settle with a thich foam with small round lacing. Medium body malt base with a cresendo of moderatly piney hops that tone down to a finish tingle. Carbonation seems un even ...or was that me?
