A: pours a deep reddish orange with a finger of dense and rocky off white head that leaves excellent lacing as it fades to a small pool in a Duvel Tulip. I know it isn't the 'proper' glassware but let's face it, the beer is an off color DIPA
S: smells dank as all hell with some citrusy, piney and earthy notes
T: tastes of earthy hops, some pine and a bit of grapefruit with some caramel sweetness providing balance , some brown sugar, and slightly bready as well. swallow is big oily and bitter with a bit of residual sweetness and a slight toasty malt flavor
M: heavy side of medium in the mouth with somewhat prickly carbonation that helps mask the thickness of the beer, juicy hop finish
O: It's a big beautiful and hoppy red ale. it tastes good, is priced well and is very inoffensive and well made if you like hoppy beer. It's everything I'd expect from a lagunitas beer.

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.
