Lagunitas: The Hairy Eyeball Ale

Hairy Eyeball?  I found this one over at the Whole Foods near my house.  According to the Lagunitas website, this was a New Year’s Day release … what you would call a “seasonal beer.” LOL!  Fortunately, it was still there when I shopped for it … and it had time to “age” a little on the shelf.  At about 8.3% abv, it probably needed a little development.

In their virtual description of this beer, Lagunitas states that it doesn’t follow any style.  I agree — however, it was a very nice flavored beer…the alcohol was very apparent; however, the hops balanced it very nicely.  Overall, this is a good beer, but definitely not a session beer!
