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!

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.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2010
I like the name. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of malt, but also some citrus hops. More hops than I was expecting, but well balanced with some slight bitterness. Solid beer.

Suttree (6286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2010
In military lingo, the proper to say WTF would be Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, but Im guessing most states would balk at the use of the word Whiskey on a beer label. Oddly, the band Wilco released an album called Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, so I suppose that was a natural substitution. At any rate, this was a tasty brew, not as hoppy as I expect from Lagunitas, but hoppy for a brown ale. Pretty tasty.

The aroma is citrus, and some fruity notes. The appearance is a nice deep reddish brown, mostly clear, white head. The flavor is citrus hops, brown sugar, some light fruit. The finish is a grapefruit citrus bittering. Medium/thick in body. Very nice beer. For something advertised as a malty beer, I thought the hops, especially citrus hops, were definitely in the forefront. As with most Lagunitas beers, it was a great beer at a great price. Great value.

Exactly as advertised. A malty, big smooth brown with a dose of west coast hop profile. Yummy!
