Review: Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot

In Beer Reviews by Ryan

Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot is, according the brewer:

A big Ol’ Imperial Brown Ale to help you with your slippery slide on into springtime. Rich, smooth, dangerous & chocolatey.

I poured this imperial brown ale into a plastic cup, sadly, at a hotel room in Lansing, MI.  Apparently, when I go on the road for work I will need to start packing a Belgian tulip glass along with my bottle opener.

Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot pours a murky brown with a finger or so of tan head. The nose is a bouquet of floral hops.

At first sip you’re hit with floral and citrusy hops which are then followed up by some smooth, velvety caramel.  Wilco Tango Foxtrot finishes dry.

The interesting thing about this beer is the flavors don’t blend together they POP.  They’re very bold.  You don’t fade into the caramel you get hit with it. There are no subtleties in the flavors and I like that.

This is, yet again, a very tasty, easy drinking and affordable beer from Lagunitas.  What the eff took me so long to try it?
