Lagunitas Beers Return

Lagunutas Brewing entered the state a few months ago via the Bayou and Beehive with a few labels. Today we are finally getting an expanded glimpse of their regular line-up. Here are some of the new Lagunitas beers to enter the market.

Lagunitas IPA: Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts. Beautiful citrus taste with a solid sweet malty backbone. Heavy hop rind lingers on the tongue for a little while.

Lagunitas Imperial Stout: Starts with cocoa and coffee. Raisin and fig with light coffee and chocolate comes next. Finishes with dark malts and a slightly nutty taste.

Lagunitas Pils: A nice sweet malt flavor with a bit of a grassy noble hop flavor. There's a bitterness towards the end that is quite nice.

Lagunitas Pale Ale: The taste starts with sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. There's a decent hops presence that comes in next with a hearty malt character that provide a decent balance.

Lagunitas Censored: Sweet toffee and caramel malt up front. The toasted malt flavors intensify in the middle with some emerging spicy/floral hop notes. Finishes with lots of sweet, amber malt and a mild pine hop smack.

Lagunitas Maximus: Sweet citrus hops explode on the tongue balanced with the caramel malt base. Grapefruit and bright tropical fruit flavor dominate much of the palate with only a slight caramel flavor peaking through.

Available at the Bayou & Beerhive

Cheers!

Any idea if these will make it to the state stores, or are they just going to special orders that Bayou and Beerhive are making?

It's hard to say. If they sell well the state may pick them up. The state didn't sell Rogue or Deschutes until Mark & Del brought them in.

I picked up a censored at the wine store on 300 e downtown today :)

Let's just have Mark and Del bring in everything we want then.
