4.33/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25
A: Poured out a clear copper color with two fingers of off white head. Lacing all around the glass.
S: Biscuit, orange, grapefruit and tropical fruit.
T: Hello hops! Never would've expected them from the nose, but pleasantly surprised. Big flavors of tropical fruit and caramel. Hop flavor seems to be of the earthy variety.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation. Some alcohol warming sensation but its not too bad. Honestly wasn't expecting any warming sensation at all, since ABV is less than 9%.
O: A very, very good red ale. I've had a few different red ales and they are either very boring or too hoppy. This one seems to find the right balance of hop and malt for the style. Another win for Lagunitas!

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
