Hopped and Bothered; Lagunita's Wilco Tango Foxtrot

Lagunita's --Wilco Tango Foxtrot

Alcohol content 7.8%. Strong tangerine at the front. Pours a nice foamy white head. Grapefruit essence at the beginning scent. Aroma is citrus. Tart. Clean. Crisp. The taste is instantly bitter and hoppy. Gives way to an almost instantaneous shift into roasted malty and near syrupy brown sugary goodness. Pine lingers in the bite. A hint of ginger and warm biscuit is the end of the ride.

Buy if: you are in the mood for a "limited" release and a hoppy brown ale.

Overall: I'm not a fan of the bitterness, but the scent and aftertaste won me over. Plus, it's over 7%.

3.50 out of 5.

WTF. Yes indeed.
