Pours a dark brown with a white head that fades quickly.Nose is very subtle malt with a little yeast and barnyard notes.Taste is malty and slightly creamy with a decent bitter hop finish.Lagunitas always makes a great bang 4 yer buck beer and this is one of those.Not in the class of the Hairy Eyeball or Hop Stoopid but a good brew overall.

22oz bottle 3/31/10 (Binny’s Plainfield)-50° in Snifter- Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of hops, pine, and citrus. Taste of malt, hops, and caramel. A nice medium to full bodied brew that is full of flavor and is balanced very well. Another kick ass brew from Lagunitas.

Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a dark brown color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is light fruit, citrus hops, and biscuity malt. Taste is light chocolate, citrus hops, and light fruit. It’s almost a ’dirty’ APA. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overall? Damn good! Full of piney resinous hops as well as a nice dry malt. Reminds me of the other ’Imperial Reds’ out there, but this one has more of a cannabis like flavor in the nose. Pours deep copper with beige head. Oh, and if you’re wondering why Wilco instead of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot - ATF would not like beer labeled whiskey and Lagunitas would get in trouble.

OK my friends--I’m a BIG Arrogant Bastard fiend--LOVE the stuff. This is a variation of that style. Nice hoppy smell, malty taste. It’s like a candy apple version of an AB, in that it’s a less bitter, sweeter style of that delectable brew. NICE! Shonkers likes. Rides the Crazy Train to my Brain. This is another example of the genius that is Lagunitas, and I can only hope this becomes a year-round production of that fine company. My only gripe? As a pilot, "WTF" is phonetically spelled out "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot", NOT "WILCO Tango Foxtrot". Lagunitas probably thought saying "Whiskey" on the label would be too confusing....

Dark brown/reddish color with a medium head. Big pine and citrus aroma. Smells a bit like a hop vine. Light grain. Strong bitter taste up front. Quite malty, and a lot of biscuit character. A little piney hop flavor. Dry finish.

On cask at the Whole Foods / CCB Cask Event. It pours hazy muddy amber with thin tan head. The aroma starts spicy with hops to go along with some pine hops, some vague sugary sweetness and a vague sugary dark fruitiness. The taste is awash with spicy pine hops giving up a yum response from my senses and then getting mildly sweet with malts as well as dark roasted maltiness. And then toward the finish a little bit of dark fruity esteriness show up with plums and very ripe cherries off in the background. Nice hop forward goodness here.
