Lagunitas NightTime falls into the American Black Ale/IPA category. It is the counterpart to the session DayTime IPA.
Fairly typical appearance and smell for the style, dark and roasted with a hint of sweet citrus. The taste adds a surprising amount of coffee flavor to the roasted malts I get on the nose. The citrus I smelled translates into the taste, along with just a little bit of the onion type flavor I don’t really like in an IPA. Be warned that this beer comes in at 8.2% ABV, I didn’t get any alcohol heat at all.
Very good overall, this is certainly a beer I would revisit again. Ho-hum, just another great tasting and reasonably priced beer from Lagunitas!
