Great bottle artwork as usual from Lagunitas for their 13th anniversary ale.
Pours a heady deep mahogany color and retains head for a short while which gives way to shallow puddles of larger bubbles in a sea of a thin over lace.
The nose on this isn't as pronounced as i had expected, a strong inhalation brings scents of non-ripened strawberries and small seed fruit fields.
The flavor is really where this excels, a great mouthfeel all around along with instant bursts of roasted malts and then a punch of dampened sour fruit.
As the drink comes up to room temperature a more lengthy flavor of caramel sneaks into the brew with a nice mild finish.
Hard to drink many of these considering the ABV, but it's something i'd easily be able to have an entire 22oz bottle of.
A solid brew from a dependable brewery.

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
