Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday

What the brewers say

"It's the Holy Grail pursuit of brewing in hoppy beer making: year-round wet hop flavor. Questing has no end and we are still tweaking our process but we hope you find this mid-summer anachronism to be satisfying as we do."

What our panel thought

Aroma: "Mix of citrus, pine, and a pleasant earthy funkiness in the hop aroma, along with a hint of caramel sweetness."

Flavor: "Pleasantly balanced - the malt has some caramel sweetness up front, but still finishes relatively dry and crisp. Classic American hop character though, but there's a grassy dry hop character that comes across a bit astringent on the finish. Pleasant lingering spiciness on the swallow."

Overall: "The tart character is interesting and hard to place. Probably a combination of the hops and the attenuation in ferment. Sticky and tasty."
