Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: Dark gold/copper color with a very thin, off-white head
that drops quickly and completely, leaving no lace.
Aroma: Tropical fruit and citrus, very sharp, smells awesome
Taste: Fruity (lots of citrus) sweetness but not cloying at all.
Very sharp bitterness in a good way. On the back of the tongue it
almost seems like a candy apple (not sweet, just flavors).
Mouthfeel: Very crisp for the style, almost dry. A combination of
oily hops and some astringency makes this no where near sweet.
Overall: An awesome example of the style, it avoids the DIPA/barleywine
issue. A massive hopbomb that is very easy to drink, I have no
problem reaching for a second or third. Highly recommended, a truly
Story of Lagunitas Brewing
From our earliest days of striving to make consistently good beer,
and instead making beer that ranged from vile, to barely drinkable,
to wonderful, to elegant, to questionable-at-best. From being
castigated by our West Marin neighbors to finally suffering an
'eviction' by our West Marin septic system. From landing in the
welcoming arms of Petaluma, and actually getting our beer into
bottles, onto the streets, and into the hands of sympathatic beer
geeks, to steadily losing less money each month. From all this and
more, Lagunitas Brewing Company is emerging as a battle-tested
brewery capable of making great beer out of goat's milk, brambles,
and asphalt on the surface of the Moon, if need be.
As the poet once said, 'Where, but for the grace of God and the
kindness of strangers, go I'. Where go we indeed, whatever that
