Pours clear and golden orange with white head. Wood and hops are primary aromas. Flavor is dry wood with caramel-malt. Inoffensive but a bit boring for a strong ale.
Drank with Kaspar and Lennart @ Piet Huisman 14-07-17. Nice fresh IPA. Not that memorable. Niko100 (2944) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Rich amber color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of caramel malt, some oak, hops, & spice; Flavor of slight roasted malt, caramel, hops, and citrus; Finish is slightly bitter; Nicely balanced; Decent. 17Beer (371) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Mild malt smells with some leather and apricot. Pours an orange with a frothy quick dissipating white head with good lacing. Tastes follow the nose, malty with a little metalic note. Short finish and dry mouthfeel. Balanced but less character than the average Lagunitas. hallinghansen (3331) - Odense SV, DENMARK - APR 26, 2017
Bottle at home. Clear amber body with a medium offwhite head. Sweet malty, caramel. Decent. meccahh69lol (251) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - APR 10, 2017
Yet another Lagunitas standby, gotta rate em all! This one pours a rich dark caramelly color. The aroma is sweet and malty and caramelly. The taste is rich deep earthy malts with yes caramel and even a little spicy/tangy kick on the back end. Overall, this is smooth, easy drinking, but with a little complexity and an unexpected 6.75% ABV, it rises above most of its amber peers. Good for realizing the high temp tomorrow is 69 degrees lol.

Has a rich copper look indeed with a whipped head of creamy foam. Intensely rich notes of caramel and toffee with a hint of oak and dark dried fruit at the end . Very smooth and sweet. M_Sack (734) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle. Deep copper with thin white head. Big bread and caramel malt, dried fruits and ester elements, with underpinning citrus elements. Initial moderate bitterness, with big bread and caramel malt mid palate. Earthy hop bitterness provides long finish and prevents any sweetness. Enjoyed this as my first autumnal beer for the season.

Bottle from J’s. Pours a slightly hazy brown with a half finger of foam. Caramel and toffee nose. Clean and very malt forward. More caramel, a little wood and earth. Dry finish. Basic, but OK for a malt head I suppose. TheBeachBeers (16) - - JAN 26, 2017
Poured from bottle into cup. Hints of caramel in aroma. Tastes slightly sweet. Full bodied with a medium length finish. john44 (3133) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle. Copper Amber in colour. Malty; sweet toasty malts, caramel. Hoppy; grassy and resinous piney hops. Fruity; citrus fruit. Good malt/hop/fruit balance. Sweet throughout with dryish finish. Easy drinking. Enjoyed this. (2011-09-04)
