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?

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 5, 2010
Lagunitas Brewing Wilco Tango Foxtrot Pours deep brown with a reddish tinge and a thinner whitish head, mild lacing. Aroma is malty hops and not overtly strong. There is an earthy grassy smell to it as well. Flavor is IPA hoppy with a stronger malt backbone. Got better as it warmed The beer feels more robust, but still not as good as other similar types (namely Arrogant Bastard).

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2010
Bomber. Pours a deep, dark, chestnut to cola brown color, showing translucent in a strong light. A small but steadfast head of creamy, beige tinted foam leaves jagged flares and broken rings of lacing on the glass. The nose is aggressively hopped with dank, green grassy notes, also hinting at citrus rind, with countering notes of malty rye and caramel. There’s a peppery, sandalwood spice overtone that works quite nicely. Flavors are the mirror image, again potently hopped with green grass notes, spiced with toasted, oily, cedary wood, and balanced out with rich caramel, rye, and cocoa malt notes. I also picked up hints of chestnuts. The finish is again quite green, yet sufficiently softened by toasty bread notes. Smashingly drinkable, even at nearly 8% ABV, the palate sports a distinct creaminess up front that end with a fine, actively carbonated flurry. This is exactly what I expected from Lagunitas.....an above average, unabashedly hopped, highly enjoyable bargain brew.

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.

From the tap poured brown with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

WeeHeavySD (3379) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2010
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 (1323) - 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 (3695) - 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.

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.
