Draft at Gatsby's. Hazy gold with heavy hops in the nose, citrus fruit, florals, complex and well balanced flavor. tnkw01 (1858) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Bottle. This is certainly hoppy. Gold in color with a large, long lasting head. Citrus in aroma and taste. Very bitter finish. obguthr (7006) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2017
Draft: Orange peel nose. Clear copper, thin head. Orange, marigold, caramel, dandelion. Medium body, easy carbonation. A bit hoppy for the style, but hey, it's Lagunitas. balloonbuffoon (845) - - NOV 20, 2017
22floz bottle, no date, $4, pint glass. A buttery gumball aroma escapes from this copper lager laden with a beige head. Sometimes Lagunitas surprises me with something that is more than there alright fare. Sure it has earthy hop flavor and bitterness as intended, but there is balance with light sweetness of biscuit maltiness. Tasty, and filling. b3shine (9412) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2017
Draft to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copperish orange with off-white head. Smells like a malty lager alongside fruity and piney hops. Tastes like it smells with a bit of toast as well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and toasty. Solid.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy fine to large sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a semi-transparent dark orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The smooth aroma was malty and mild vinous. The mouthfeel was tingly at the start and at the finish malt hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of vinous brown malt hops malt and bread dough. Onslow (1561) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2017
Pour from a 22 oz bomber. Beautiful clear tawny brown brew with beige head, great head retention and lacing. Aroma is spicy and resinous - very much IPA style. Taste is sweet malt up front , caramel with woody notes; stays sweet through the finish with some underlying bitterness. the hops in in the nose never shows up in the taste. Interesting brew - reminds me of a malty winter warmer. Strykzone (7889) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2017
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clearish amber brown with a beige head that leaves cool looking lacing. First sniff is of earthy and floral hops. Flavor is floral more than fruity. Some toast and earth. Sugar as well as brown sugar. It is smooth in the mouth and has only a little bitterness to it. A little alcohol is tasted and that is the only negative for me. I love the beginning of this beer but not so much to the finish. The alcohol took over. This would be so good with a much more moderate ABV. So how to rate it? hayduke (5757) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 18, 2017
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat, he with his 22 oz bottle and me with mine. Poured copper/amber with a beige head. Nose is roasted malts and light fruit. Medium body and a very smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted malts, the fruit, some earthiness. The finish is bitter but not overly so. Really flavorful and easy drinking. A solid beer. Reminds me a little of a doppelbock, but is in its own way unique. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2017
bottle. coppery amber with one finger head. i wasn't really sure what to expect with this one, but there's definitely more malt than i was expecting. there's caramel and cracker, but this leans towards the dry side. solid bitterness. california commons are hard to find, especially ones as well done as this one.
