bomber into tulip.
A: crystal clear bight copper color. head is just a shade shy of bright white. frothy. good retention, coat of lacing left behind.
S: fantastically hoppy nose. lots of melon, cantaloupe, and even a little bit of sharp lime. I cant find any grain in here and I don't even care. this things smells fantastic. I cant think of any reds ive had, especially not one this big, that smells this sticky. two thumbs up.
T: this thing has some tang to it. starts with some hop flavor, pine battles with those fruity citrus American hops. now im getting a little bit of malt, caramel tones. aggressive finish includes a sticky hop bitterness and a mild alcohol heat.
M: average, slightly fizzy carb on a medium/full body.
D: really fantastic stuff here. glad I got this pretty fresh (or at least it sure does taste that way) considering no date coding... regardless for the price (I think I paid $6) is beyond worth it. well done lagunitas, well done.

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
