COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s a dry-hopped California Common with a massive malt character, rounded out by a bitter balance from some experimental hops from the Yakima Valley, this beer will leave you saying ‘I’ll be bock!’ He awoke from the time transfer naked, damp, dizzy, disoriented, and alone, except for the bottle of some auburn ale he still clutched in his sweating hand. He looked to the right and then to the left for some kind of shelter. In an instant, a towering figure cast a long shadow over him and he saw a single enormous hand extended his way. All of his synapses crackled as he recognized the massive and terrifying form as that of the Great Brewmaster. He heard a deep voice say, “Come with me if you want to live”. He now knew the bottle in his hand must contain the rare Lagunator and he also knew that he might survive to enjoy it. Experience all the terror and the drama…

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.

shigadeyo (3764) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2017
10/06/2017 (22 fl oz bottle): Loads of caramel malts and citrus candy hops in the aroma; really beautiful, rich, deep honey, clean complexion, large and lasting head of ivory-colored foam and fantastic lacing; malty and rich, sweet and bitter, caramel and citrus, honey and toffee, great PINE hoppiness as well, strong but not alcoholic, trademark hoppy Lagunitas flavor and bitterness twist on the style; medium to medium full body, very smooth and thick texture; really good hoppy bock, the bitterness complements and balances all of the maltiness well or it would be too sweet, really VERY good!

malrubius (2982) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle from Table and Vine. Amber clear with dense lasting tan head and lace. Toasted caramel brown bread earth wood aroma. Medium-heavy roasted caramel sweetness with medium earthy woody roasty bitterness. Medium body creamy not sticky. Not an India Pale Lager, but an excellent double California Common or a Doppel Bock. (It even says bock in the description FFS).
