Looks like a combination of a red ale and IPA. Coppery red tones in the appearance.
The smell has something less than desireable about it. I suspect its the malts used in a red, because those aren't something I typically dig on, and I almost always love Lagunitas use of hops.
Taste is the best thing about this beer. Recommend getting it as fresh as possible, one of those highly hopped beers that doesn't age the greatest. Has the irish red thing underneath all the hops and bitterness. Hides the alcohol well. Lingers nicely. Could drink a few of these.
Serving type: on-tap

Gotta love the label graphic - nicely done
Looks like this was bottled about April 23rd 2013, so it's got a lot of age on it now! Bought at the end of last September and mistakenly aged. That might explain why it came across as more of an ESB than an American amber.
Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: Nearly clear dark amber/copper with an inch plus offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Mild caramel malt.
t; First impression is its pleasing silky smoothness, followed by a nice caramel malt and hops balance. Sweet to dry finish. Its 8.65% ABV is well concealed.
m: Medium, silky smooth.
o: A very enjoyable and satisfying ESB-style ale, highly sippable and savory in texture and overall taste. I'd buy this again anytime of year. However I'll need to try a much fresher bottle to confirm this.
Serving type: growler
