A: Mahogany with a clean and refined look to it. Only a dozen or so bubbles float to the surface. The head is full and creamy, tight bubbles the color of sand.
S: Pomegranate and skunky weed. Straight up
T: Begins with red apple, under ripe plums and watermelon playing well together. Moves towards minor caramel with a good doughy backbone and spicy hops. Lot of pink grapefruit, blood orange with with some cranberry tie all the flavors together. I think I can taste some rye in here too I wouldnt be surprised if that was the case. Finishes with a good amount of abstract bitterness around the back sides with shades of vanilla and sappiness.
M: Medium mouthfeel, somewhat hard with moments of fluffiness.
D: Lagunitas is stepping up their game. A lot of their beers sort of taste the same but this one stands out. I like this. Interesting that both of my favorite beers by Lagunitas are red ales.

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.
