A - very red, crystal clear, thick tan head, lots of fine carbonation bubbles, leaves thick sheets of lace behind.
S - grapefruit hop, lucious caramel malt
T - nicely balanced between the hop and malt, both are firm, but blend well. Extremely clean. Distinct grapefruit character finally takes over in the finish. Aftertaste leaves a firm bitterness, yet it is quite smooth and somehow fitting.
M - med body, creamy fullness, dry resiny finish
D - lighter than a barleywine, easy to drink, great flavours, extremely clean and smooth.
The really like the hop finish on this one. It seems like a perfect ending to a hard fought battle between malt and hops, with the hops finally coming out on top. Lagunitas rarely disappoints, and is very reasonably priced... Lucky 13 is yet another winner!

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.
