4.18/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance- Surprised by the color considering it is advertised as an amber/red. It looks more like a pilsner.
Smell- Sweet malt is the first thing I notice but there is quite a bit of apricot.
Taste- Fairly well balanced. Walks the line of being too sweet but never falls off the cliff. Good mix of malt characteristics and some hops notes as well. Tastes more like a pale ale.
Mouthfeel- Feels like an IPA in that I get a resiny coating on my tongue after each sip.
Overall- it feels like a bit of false advertising to call this an amber/red but I would recommend it to someone in a minute. I'm pleasantly surprised.

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.
