I've had this sitting around for a while and finally decided to crack it open. This red ale pours a true red copper color with a thick and lasting off white head that leaves beautiful silky lacing. The nose is a delicious blend of sweet malts, west coast hops, and spice. The body is rather full with a pleasant carbonation and just the right amount of sticky sweetness. It finishes rather dry for such a malty ale. The flavor is a little different from the nose with a more pronounced spicy, peppery bite and an increased sweetness. This is a very good red. Knowing lagunitas and their love of hops, I want to try this fresh to see if there is a more pronounced hop character. This is very good none the less, just a tad sweet for what I expect from the brewer.

One of the best examples of a red ale you will find. A round, pungent blast of super strength. You cannot go wrong. Lagunitas cares, you should as well.
Get a hold of any of their beers, except for the PILS, which I think is a wasted effort. Also, try not to drink too much, as in the brewery in general. It will wash your palate away, and you'll be hunting for a great stout or porter to revive your palate. You will know. Thanks Lagunitas, you guys make great brews!
