Pours a clear golden color. There is a discernable peach tint as the beer leaves the mouth of the bottle and waterfalls into the glass. A foamy, off white head appears and lingers, but for no longer than the average ale. There is a wonderful, rich aroma of butterscotch offset by sweet citrus. Creamy mouthfeel that almost seems misplaced. A mild scrubbing appears on the rear of the tongue, likely due more to hop heat than carbonation, as the beer finishes. The flavors are complex. Not necessarily complimentary, but interesting. Sweet, bold malt brings an undeniable, vibrant toffee flavor, followed immediately by some pretty obtrusive hop resin. This is a pretty large effort on the part of Lagunitas for number 13. I like it because it is irreverent and disrespectful, but quite good.

I generally don't like red ales. This is an exception, by far, for me.
Beautiful pour from the bottle. Ruby mahogany color, slow moving carbonation, a little hazy. Creamy head that dissipates to a couple of millimeters slowly, but that lace will stay there forever.
The nose is one of the most inviting I've encountered in a while. Malty and bread, creamy yet crisp and herbal as well. Plum and raisin, a whole lot. Sweet burnt malt and alcohol. Give me some!
Taste is sweet and fruity at the beginning, like toasted raisin bread and malty granola. The hops really only kick in at the finish, as does the alcohol, but both combine for a bitter and clean aftertaste.
Good, real good.
