Had this on tap at hopcat in grand rapids mi. The best I could describe this is if a really good ipa jumped into a good porter. Its got some yummy sweetness and some great hoppy greatness. Really great stuff from a favorite brewery of mine. Cheers!

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2010
Enjoyed on tap in a pub glass. The beer pours a deep brown color, with a moderate very light tan head. The nose is somewhat more slight than I would have expected or liked, but still throws some notes of herbal and floral hops. The palate seems a little bit muddled. Firm bitterness and some hop flavor up front, followed by very little in the way of malt character. Also, as the beer lingers in the mouth, the mouthfeel begins to become more thin. Alcohol seems generally well-hidden, and makes an appearance only to add depth. The finish is semi-sweet, semi-bitter, and semi-memorable. Overall, not bad, but somewhat uncharacteristic from a brewery the caliber of Lagunitas.

Crimson and chestnut combine to form the body of the brew while a milky eggshell head rises from its depths. Toasted nuts, honey, roasted malt, and caramel show in the nose and in flavor. Also has a strong hop presence. Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation. Yum.

This is a quick review, as I am short on time....bottle pour, thin, tan head. Clear, red-brown in color, with fizzy carbonation. Nice aromas of sweet burnt caramel, plums, a bit of green apple, and high quality malts. Flavors were nicely balanced, a bit piney, with a warm, bitter finish. Finishes with a little alcohol bite, and fading aromas. A very good brew, very solid and satisfying.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
From Pt Roberts Liquors. Nice, "strong" aroma, with hops prevailing over malt. Dark copper body beneath a creamy tan head. A very robust flavour and mouth feel, plus a smooth finish. Nice beer.

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.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2010
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 (7656) - 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.
