Lagunitas Lucky 13
Amber colored with thick head. Aroma is sweet malts and hops, sorta hard to describe but the nose says 'yes please'. Taste is very sweet caramel malts with hops in the background. Can't describe what the hops are bringing but it seems to balance the malts nicely. Smooth velvety mouthfeel with pretty clean finish. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagunitas Aunt Sally
Bottle into tulip glass, clear bright golden color with off-white head. Aroma notes of hay, sour fruit, lemon and faint pine. Taste adds sour tart, lemon zest, tropical fruit (pineapple, orange) and grapefruit bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, lively with tropical fruity tart finish. Nice easy drinking and fun sour.

Lagunitas Equinox Ale
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was musty and malt hop. The crisp and clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly bitter and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

22 oz bottle pours a semi-hazy orange with thin patchy white head. Aroma is resinous with a pith note and a hint of banana esters. Taste is biscuit, caramel, and floral pith; up front bitter with a mild, slick finish. Seems like a cross between a red and a hop bomb.

Bottle from a :Lazy Dog Mostly clear deep yellow with a huge rocky white head that persists. Resinous pine hop on the nose with faint malt underneath. Lightly tart with lemon and cherry and plenty of resinous earthy hops to counter. The tartness is subtle but I really enjoyed the complexity it adds to this beer.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a sly transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. Thin white foamy head dissipated at a nice pace. Semi-rimmed lacing slides into the beer. The smell starts off with some ripe sweet grape skin, tart apple, sour green apple. Then luscious sweet grass, sly sweet lemon. The flavor takes in all of the previously mentioned flavors to combine and bring about the sourness a bit forward than the sweetness. Subtle sweetness in the aftertaste. And breaks down appropriately in the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a mostly smooth/rounded sweet to sour harshness hitting my tongue. Unlike a fair amount of other American sour/wild ales, this one definitely hits a lot more smoother. Overall, since the harsh "sour"ness is quite smoothed out and not as strong in this one, I’d say this would be a great starter AWA for noobies, still I’d have this again.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Fruity and tart. Light lemon and orange. Citrusy hops show up a bit in the finish. Very good. I suspect it’s a kettle sour, but it’s got a lot more depth than most of the kettle sours hitting the market lately.

Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot (WTF) Ale
Dark copper color with a bone colored head. Head is moderately sized but rather clingy to the glass. Caramel and citrus aromas abound. I’m not a big fan of this combination, but I’m sure there are many who find it quite enjoyable. Light sweet start with caramel and grapefruit flavors. It’s not like a grapefruit with caramelized sugar on top, more grapefruit dipped in caramel. I’m thinking more and more like this is just a hop juiced strong amber. OK STFU and drink M’rF’r. Know what I’m saying. 6/10

Très belle couleur cuivré transparente avec une petite effervescence et une légère mousse. Nez cuivré sur des effluves de mangue et de miel. En bouche, c’est légèrement gazéifié, cuivré avec un léger soupçon de petits fruits et de thé vert. Une petite finale amer laissant trace sur les sucres résiduel!
