Lagunitas arrived in GA for the first time this week, and although I’ve had a few of their offerings before, I was happy to snag this new one at Green’s, Buford Highway, Atlanta, GA, USA for $2.99 for the 22oz bomber. Homage being paid to Frank Zappa & The Mothers.
Poured into a pint glass. Very, very light orange pour. Smallish head with a little lacing. Nose has a little hop character but not much.
Taste is an interesting combination of grapefruit hops and some sweetness in the middle. The finish has a satisfying bitterness. Some metallic notes and the mouthfeel is nice – not spectacular, but better than average. Aftertaste lingers pleasantly.
I like it and the alcohol is well hidden, this drinks much more like a sessionable 5% beer to me, so just be a little careful!
