Lagunitas Imperial Red

Appearance: light nut brown, medium head, and good lacing.

Smell: fruity hops and a very light grain.

Taste: whole hop, nice malts, and a light citrus.

Mouthfeel: medium and smooth.

Overall:
This is nice brew. The hops are up front and immediately followed by nice warm malts. The hops give off a whole cone flavor, while being very balanced in itself. The hops were added in the right amounts at the right times.

Serving type: bottle
