It poured a deep copper amber with a substantial off white head. There were sweet malts and a strong citrus and fruity hop on the nose. The initial taste was signature Lagunitas' grapefruit and citrus hops and I knew I was going to enjoy this beer. The flavor had much more depth than the initial hop love. There were notes of caramel and toasted grain malts underneath the tropical fruit, citrus and apricot hop flavors. The taste profile was deep and varied and took my palate on a ride with each sip. The Lucky #13 is the best Imperial Red Ale I have had.

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
