4.25/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
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.

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
