Say “lah-goo-knee-tuss” and say it with a smile! 🙂 For the most part, I love these guys… they are just down to earth cool and they are keeping it hip and fresh more than probably most other brewers out there… fresh and funky, Lagunitas is on the bleeding edge of craft brewing and I love it. This little number has a cool little meaning that goes along with it… check out the high res label here (must tilt head to read… or right click and rotate clockwise).
The official tasting goes a little something like this:
Small head, fruity nose. Passion fruit/tropical medley in there somewhere for sure. Nice sweet body but with a hoppy bitterness that is almost perfectly balanced with the malts. I know it says it isn’t a double IPA, but this thing really hits the bill perfect and at 7.2% ABV is a belly warmer to boot.
A well crafted American IPA that has outstanding balance from start to finish, from the brewery that just keeps bringing us hits.
