Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot


Yeah, Lagunitas doesn’t give much information about their beers. But this is an imperial brown ale, which will probably be my first imperial brown ale….wait, no, the second.

Imperial Brown Ale. 7.83% ABV. 64.2 IBUs. California. March Release.

Brown with reddish hues. Head dissipates, but very nice lacing.

Smells a bit like a hoppy barley wine. Definitely some pine and citrus in here, but also with a lot of that brown sugar, sweet smell you get from barley wines. Some nice vanilla, pepper, oak, peaches, and apples.

Medium bodied.

Pine, brown sugar, and sweetness on the initial attack. Then you get some citrusy, fruity, sweet mid-palate. It ends nicely with a little hop bitterness, with some heavy caramelized peaches and pears. There is an area in this beer between the mid-palate and the finish where it really falls flat and gets a tad watered-down.

Not amazing, but decent. 88 points.

    The fact that they named one of their beers WTF (basically) is worth an extra 5 points in my book. lol
