Poured into becker pint glass. Copper dark orange with a fluffy white head that sticks to the glass leaving lots of delicate lacing. Smells fruity and hoppy and floral, with a strong sweet clean malt behind it. A little hint of alcohol in the smell as well. Taste is a smooth but slightly spiky sweet malt with a fruity and slightly bitter hop finish. Alcohol is pretty present, as this is pretty strong as red ales go. Delicious though.

A- Dark rich copper in color. Slightly hazy. Creamy two finger off white head leaves moderate lacing.
S- Sour bready malt and yeast. Bitter dank hops behind that.
T- Huge malt and hop flavors melt together with a bitter and sour feel. There's alot going on and plenty of flavor to go around. The aftertaste is a muted version of the beginning. Slightly warming in the end.
M- Med to heavy bodied. Malty but this fades strangely to a more smooth feel towards the end.
O- Plenty of flavor, wonderful look and a decent feel. I don't feel I'm up to rate this brew fairly because its not in my wheelhouse. I'm not a fan of this style, although I can see how some may like it. Too much sour, malty mess. However it does improve with temperature. This one may need to be served a little warmer. Lagunitas consistently puts out brews that inspire me. Unfortunately this one is not one of my favorites. Such is life.
Edit- with no apparent date on the bottle and after reading other reviews, I think this must be a older beer. A complete break down on the hop flavor I experienced leads me to feel this way. I think I need to give this one another go to be sure.
