Year of New Beer: Born Again Yesterday, Lagunitas Brewing (CA)
Written By: Dion on 04/18/2017
I've said it many times before...few breweries produce beers of the consistent quality and price point that even come close to Lagunitas. This is a hop lover's dream...a nose that matches up flawlessly to the tongue, providing huge notes of citrus peel as mango, grapefruit, and tangerine all arrive to assault the senses. With warmth, a hint of melon joins a building grassy bitterness. Very faint caramel and honey tones attempt to balance things out, but I'm perfectly fine with the fact they don't. This is straight juicy, hoppy goodness. Stellar.
