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.

A- Dark rich copper in color. Slightly hazy. Creamy two finger off white head leaves moderate lacing.
S- Sour bready malt and yeast. Bitter dank hops behind that.
T- Huge malt and hop flavors melt together with a bitter and sour feel. There's alot going on and plenty of flavor to go around. The aftertaste is a muted version of the beginning. Slightly warming in the end.
M- Med to heavy bodied. Malty but this fades strangely to a more smooth feel towards the end.
O- Plenty of flavor, wonderful look and a decent feel. I don't feel I'm up to rate this brew fairly because its not in my wheelhouse. I'm not a fan of this style, although I can see how some may like it. Too much sour, malty mess. However it does improve with temperature. This one may need to be served a little warmer. Lagunitas consistently puts out brews that inspire me. Unfortunately this one is not one of my favorites. Such is life.
Edit- with no apparent date on the bottle and after reading other reviews, I think this must be a older beer. A complete break down on the hop flavor I experienced leads me to feel this way. I think I need to give this one another go to be sure.
