This is a bad mugg!! Pours a great dark copper in color. This ale smells of great clean hops, but with a perfect balance of malt. Taste is great. Again balance being the key here. Lagunitas Is a great brewery and this is another great offering!!! Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Lots of hops and sweet caramel flavor. Kind of like arrogant bastard. Good balance and price. GMCC2181 (1613) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAR 30, 2009

On tap. Poured a clear, dark amber color with a short white head. Spotty lacing. The aroma was well balanced between sweet malts and nice citrusy hops. A little roasty smokiness too. The flavor is brown sugar, roasted malt, smoke, citrus and floral hops. Nice mouthfeel. Medium bodied, succinct finish. Drinkable. Relatively high alcohol content is well hidden. thebeeve (6) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2009 does not count
This stuff is extremely tasty. Almost perfect. My only "complaint" is the 9% alcohol level. Ouch. It doesn’t taste that strong, I could easily drink more of this stuff than advisable.

Fugggg. 9.03% a clearly visible see-through amber beer with a very thin head and loads of bubbles. Aromatic hops presence that turns up the corners of the mouth. Flavor is like a bouquet of hop flowers bursting in your mouth, but tame wnough not to cause discomfort or rejection. Sweet release. There might be some malt in there on the finish. Definatley a shutdown on the tastebuds. Mouthfeel is velvety. The stuff is dangerously too smooth to drink regularly. sbroome (149) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2009
the first lagunitas i wasn’t terribly impressed by. pours reddish with mild off-white head. nose is grapefruit and mild floral. taste is like every other hopped-up IPA with not as high an IBU. Good, but not great. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Sample at March 27, 2009 beer club meeting, at home with weeAnaP on March 28, 2009. Has an amber-orange color with a lovely head. Sweet west coast, Lagunitas hop aroma. Flavor is great! Man, I love this beer. Excellent in the mouth, No other words are necessary. This is a fun, comfortable, very pleasing beer to drink. I can’t get enough of it. viciousg42 (46) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2009
hoppy, but has a weird aftertaste. id compare this aftertaste to something generated by an 8 or 10% malt liquor. not a good aftertaste for the price you pay for this unique brew. it almost tastes like a real old beer would taste. Learninbeer (639) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Pours brown with amber highlights. Fully diminishing off-white head, very good lacing. Has a kind of yeasty aroma, a little barnyard/leather smell. The flavor is a little sweet and sour, a little too sour. The body is full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively then soft. Maybe my tastebuds are out of whack tonight but I’m not impressed with this beer either.
