Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball
While at Fat Head’s in Pittsburgh, I ordered a glass of Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball. The beer pours a brown color with a thin filmy tan head. The aroma consists of sweet malts, raisin, smoke, alcohol, and cherry. The taste is strong, bold, and very malty with cherry flavors, toasted malts, and hints of smoke that are well masked. There is a lightly dry finish with alcohol and grassy hops. The alcohol content is 8.8% ABV. This was a wonderful beer that was more than enjoyable to drink and was really dynamic, especially with the slight cherry twist and smoky background.
