Overall: There has been lots of love for Lagunitas in the past few blogs, and deservedly so!
Undercover is a fairly complex brew with lots of flavor, yet not a definitive style. I get flavors like barley wine, IPA and and Imperial Red Ale.
Undercover is very unique, with 9% ABV (but put together well). This is another outstanding offering from Lagunitas! However, it is also a seasonal beer, so be sure to get yours while you can!
I have had this beer a few times, (before it came to us at Wise Guys), and it has always been one of my favorites!
