look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a very clear, dark copper color, with a big 2 to 2.5 fingers of very fine, creamy beige head. The head has very good retention (which I suspect is due to the size of the bubbles) and leaves great lacing.
S: Very malty. Some green, citrusy fruits in there too, but mostly dominated by bready malts.
T: Not too far off how it smells. Pretty mild citrus start, followed by thick bready malts that taste mildly roasted, and finishes with a moderate hops that are well balanced (77 IBUs; my taste buds may be blown out.)
M: Pretty good body on her; a little bit bigger and thicker than others, but what should you expect from Lagunitas. As with all their beers, carbonation is great. Not boozy at all at 8.65% abv, which is always a sign of a quality brew.
O: A very nice red. As an IPA fan, I think I prefer this to their Censored copper ale, as it has a bit more hop bitterness in the finish. Enjoyable in its own right, but also might be a good beer to introduce someone into greater hops of an IPA.

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.
