A very fruity floral aroma. Nice red color. Rich and flavorful, a fruit character surfaces in the middle. A very nice beer with an excellent finish.

Bomber from Olive Tree Marketplace. Wow, not an IPA, I thought all of Lagunitas’ special beers were IPA’s, nah just kidden. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is quite nice, with a touch of citrus hoppiness and some malt as well. Taste is sweet, slightly malty and the hops come in on the back end. Its overall ok, and its very mellow on the taste buds, not bad, not exciting either.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 4, 2010
22 oz bottle from Beverages4less in Santee. Popped this one open far too late into a poker night. Malty, sweet, and yummy. Sharp with maltiness. Clean finish. Not bad, but not their best.

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2010
On tap at Brixies in Brookfield, IL., and skaker served with an amber/brown color, frothy, off white foam, and clingy ribbons of lacing. The aroma was strong malt, citrus, resin, light malt sweetness, and a touch of caramel. Ditto on the flavor, with potent hop bitterness that lasted into the finish coupled with some dryness. A big, tasty brew.

Slipstream (1932) - USA - APR 4, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2010 Another of Lagunitas’s musical tribute brews - too bad this did not have the record cover on the label. When is the Grand Wazoo or the Chunga’s Revenge ale going to come out? Malty, herbal flavor - coriander, basil, and grapefruit. This seems like a brown ale that is hopped up with nice, green houblons. Really good, and a bargain at $4 for a bomber. I had it on cask too, and that was very nice - it brout out the sweetness and esters.

theOptimator (272) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 3, 2010
Strong hops aroma, smelled it from 2 feet away when I popped the cap. Also smells sweet, strongly of pineapple Nice very dark copper color, clear. Small head that lingers for a bit. Very hoppy and very sweet. Hops lingers. Citrus/pineapple and pine. Very fruity. Has a medium to thick palate. Overall it is nice. I feel it does a good job balancing the malt and hops.... with lots of both. Leans more towards the malty, which is my preference.

Good beer but I was not overly impressed. Poured kind of flat and started and finished kind of flat in character. I guess I was just expecting a little bit more in terms of complexity and character
