In this beer blog, we are going to get into The Hairy Eyeball Ale from Lagunitas Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this West Coast Brewery. If you have not read those posts, please, read those beer blog posts to get to know Lagunitas Brewery. Let us get into this American Strong Ale.
This American Strong Ale has a dark amber color with a fluffy to a cream head. The aroma has a strong malty to an alcohol notes. The taste of this full body ale has a strong malty alcohol snap. The aftertaste has a malty dry finish with alcohol burn down the throat. This is a nice relaxing sipping beer.

A roasty, toasty, malty, hangover-halting beer. Especially formulated for when you wake up feelin’ like you need to shave your eyeballs to see the new day.

Closing, this beer has a ton going on in it. It has nice flavor yet a nice sipping beer anytime of the year. I love the back story on this brew. It has a nice alcohol bite and nice malty notes to keep you coming back for more. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
