22oz bottle. clear deep rusty red under a medium sized, frothy, off-white head. aroma of pine, caramel, lemon, orange. a nice burnt caramel flavor to this one. a hint of roast. toasted malts. plenty of hops in here lend to a piney, citrus flavor.

Sampled at tasting at stevos. Pours amber with beige head. The aroma is orange and tangerine with some light caramel and lots of fruity notes. The flavor is orange, toast, and mild caramel with a bitter aftertaste. Not bad at all.

JaBier (7288) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2010
Bottle purchased at Chucks Fine Wines. Clear brown pour with a medium off-white head. Spicy hop nose with caramel malt and some citrus. Grassy hop flavor up front giving way to caramel malt before a grassy bitter finish.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 13, 2010
Tap at Hop Devil. Poured a dark copper with a fluffy off white head. Nose was big piny and grapefruit hops but the malt is noticeable too. Almost started like a black ipa but no, its different. Big grapefruit ip front. Then it gets a bit jarbled, or was that just me? Lots of malt back up the hops and it ends very bitter. But the nose is prominent and hits you with hops on every sip even if its balanced out in the taste. Some warming. Nice but a tad harsh.

On tap at hopcat and mellow mushroom. I love lauganitas. Awesome beer insane prices. A: pours a dark shade of amber with dark brown highlights. Tall offwhite head with insane sheets of lace. S: rather mild aromas hints of caramel malts and citrus hops. Too mild. T: mmm tasty. Lots and lots of citrus hops. Enough caramel malt to push through. Hints of sweet pine...and spicy rye? M; medium in body nice and smooth. D: tasty and damn drinkable.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2010
UPDATED: APR 16, 2010 The aroma is not as strong as I was expecting but it does have hops and a bit of caramel malt to go along with a bit of earth. The appearance is deep amber with a nice head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent pineapple-citrus finish. The palate is smooth. Overall not bad but a bit of a disappointment. Im thinking WTF!

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2010
Dark copper pour with a big, chunky, persistent off white head. Left bits of lacing. Beautiful in a glass. Brown sugar aroma with citrus hops, smells very characteristic of Lagunitas. Doesnt taste overly cloying despite the heavy, malty, toasty, brown sugar sweetness of this, and has a big juicy grapefruit flavor to it. Moderate body to it. Slight earthy, grassy notes appear near the middle. This doesnt have an alcohol burn to it. This is a very well priced, highly drinkable beer.

Another great beer from lagunitas! I wasnt really sure what i was going to have wen i opened it up, but Id call it a India Brown ale. Brown ale appearance. Pretty much IPA aroma. not real strong YUM, nice ipa crunch. some malt a little "thicker" than an ipa (?) I"m not sure Ive ever been unhappy with a Lagunitas presentation. This follows, glad its usually available in our bevmo. Id get this again, as its relatively reasonable for a bomber.

dark prune juice color, bitter hoppy nose, flavor of roasted malt with slight dark fruits. Little too hot. Bottle from Lucky Liquors, Miami.
