Lagunitas The Hairy Eyeball Ale

The Lagunitas Brewing Company never fails to impress me. Each of their beers is amazingly delicious and drinkable. The Hairy Eyeball Ale is another one of their success stories. It’s a winter seasonal American Strong Ale. And it really is strong. It’s 9.4% alcohol by volume, so be sure to pace yourself because it goes down so easy (like your sister on prom night). There’s a nice sweet, almost fruity aroma with caramel malts and nut notes as well. It has a nice malty backbone, and you can taste prunes, raisins, caramel, toasted bread, and nuts. There is a slight amount of hop bitterness, but not as much as you would expect from an ale with such a high ABV. It’s definitely more malty than it is hoppy. This is not a good beer. It’s a great beer. It’s better than your sister on prom night. And everyone says your sister’s amazing on prom night.
