Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a reddish tobacco color with minimal head, decent lacing actually though. Smells of pine and biscuity malt..

The taste? It is one boozy sucker. I get some good resiny hop, but alcohol heat is forward throughout . There is a decent malty backbone here, but once again overshadowed by the alcohol. It is honestly slightly reminiscent of a barleywine to me. Not really too much else to say here.

Mouthfeel is thick , medium carbonation. Overall I do like this beer but I probably wouldn't buy a six pack of it. I think the bottle I had was a little on the old side so I'd be interested in trying this one fresh on tap at 2 brothers. That being said, it's not really a style I have a lot of experience in but I think it's worth a try.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

And here ends the 15-part celebration of the brewery's fifteenth anniversary, complete with no obvious mention of the fact. Nice. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear blood-garnet topped by a finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, toasted biscuit, light rye bread, mandarin orange, and a touch of leek in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a healthy dose of fruit rind and a decent addition of pine resin. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a very nice imperial red, one gushing with hops without burning the tongue, and one brimming with booze without forcing a cringe or grimace. Not a bad capstone, really.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: a very nice looking, clear, ruby red beer with slick hoppy bubbles hanging around the rim of the glass at the top of the beer.

Smell: very nice. Citrus, pine, resiny hops with a bit of bready malt in there as well. All subtle and not very strong but well integrated together.

Taste:a nice mix of the citrus and pine/resin aspects of the smell with a nice "red" malt flavor as the base. A dry, resin and spicy finish that lasts for awhile.

Mouthfeel: nothing special here, medium body, slighty syrupy and astringent.

Overall: a very nice beer. I love the smell- great aspects that mix well and are subtle and not overpowering. A great mix of hop flavors over a good base of malt. When i started drinking this i was assuming 7-8%abv, was somewhat surprised to find it was almost 9:5%. As i drink more of it the abv becomes more apparent but not in a bad way. I only bought two singles but hope to pick up a few more or maybe a 6 pack before it disappears. Hope the they make this regular or at least seasonal offering.
