The beer poured a deep copper mahogany color with a substantial off white head. The aroma was of a piney and citrusy hop with a bit of toffee malt underneath. The taste followed with an initial sweet malt that quickly jumped into a mega hop dose of slight resinous pine and more citrus and tropical fruit bitterness. It leaves a burnt toffee and hop bitterness on your tongue between pulls and even has hints of floral hops as the flavor lingers. This Imperial Red Ale from Lagunitas has me back on the red ale fence.

Very nice Red Ale ,poured a Rusty Dark Orange very fine bubbles nice small fine head with good lacing.
Pine forest nose with pine citrus taste, solid Ale close to there IPA's but on its own.
Worth picking up.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: pours a reddish copper color with about one cm of white head, thin lacing

S: smells sweet and lightly caramel with a nice hop touch, a little fruity, some pine notes

T: malty sweetness up front, a soft caramel flavor, a nice hop character as well, pine and citrus some to mind

M: medium body, well carbonated

O: a very good imperial, drinks incredibly smooth for such an alcohol content. It almost seems like an ipa combined with an irish red, delicious
