Picked this up, didn't realize until now it was the lucky 13.alt instead of the mondo red. Oh well, fuck it, it's here, it was cheap, let's drink it. Bomber to a pint glass, not seeing a bottled/enjoy by date
Pours a golden light copper with a little over a finger of foam. Not too bad of retention, equal lacing. Tiny suspended shards of yeast cloud the beer, interesting, gives an unfiltered look, doesn't detract the score much. Maybe the bottle's just old. Smells pretty good, spicy hops with a good citrus undertone. Caramel malts with a touch of alcohol all come together quire nicely. Taste translates well, spicy caramel hop resins having the most flavor, followed by the roasted malts. Not much of the citrus as in the smell, but is definitely detectable. Everything balances nicely, very enjoyable. Body is good too, crisp and dry with a medium body. Overall really good, not very familiar with the style but it seems pretty hop dominant for a strong/imperial blond ale, which is good news to someone who drink mostly ipas like me. Glad I picked this up
