Pours a deep golden color with a half inch white head. Good retention on the head of this beer. Head lasts the entire session with a decent amount of lacing.
Aroma is malts and earthy hops with a nice banana type scent and a bit of spice.
Taste is big on yeast, banana, pine hops and spice. This beer is fairly bitter with a good amount of malt to balance out the big hop flavor. Some warmth coming out in the finish from the higher abv.
Medium body with light to medium carbonation. A slightly grainy mouthfeel.
Overall another solid beer from Lagunitas. Fairly complex with some nice well balanced flavors that make this beer different, but not weird.....just kind of "wild". Goes down easy and is definitely worth a try!
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
