yep- another AWESOME beer from Lagunitas.
Lagunitas Lucky 13 pours a dark amber with ample frothy head.
smell is dripping with grapefruity and citrus hops. some sweet malt is present, but doesn't nearly compete with the pungent hops
taste is...wow! lots of hop flavor, front, middle, and back. grassy, lemony, grapefruity. bitterness is between medium to heavy here. the flavor and the aroma of the hops shine here more than the raw bitterness. the malt is sweet with brown sugar, toffee and caramel, carrying this massively hoppy amber.
the rich burnt-caramel malt becomes more apparent as the beer wams.
mouthfeel more than medium, very sticky, hides the alcohol well
what is this? an imperial red? a DIPA? a light barleywine? whatever it is, i love it! and probably will be buying more

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
