Okay I get it — WTF. A lament to our current economic condition complete with an idealistic poem on the side of the bottle. I give Lagunitas props for their sense of humor. I also give them props on the fact that this bomber cost $5 — imagine calling this a jobless recovery ale and charging $10.
So, they bill it as a malty, robust ale. I love malty — so I’m all in.
Pours a dark brown with not much of a head. Nose is subdued, but I get a slight roasted grain and cedar. I was expecting the malt as sweet — but it isn’t. Hops are subdued and reading it as 64 IBU – not surprised. Mouthfeel is thin. Really a non-desrcript, uneventful ale.
I’ll have to say 80 points.
