  2. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere from them that they didn't have the capacity this year.

    Imperial Red was a very nice beer. Almost as good as NN.
    I will miss it.
    Lucky for me Troegs is distributed here in NJ.

    I can think of a couple seasonals I would have them swap out for the Imperial Red:)

  8. I agree but maybe they'll make it up to us again with another awesome beer like Sucks.

    Never had Imperial Red. Is it similar to Lucky 13?
  12. You've got Ballast Point tongue Buckler out there.

    That was a drain pour for me. I was hoping it would be up there with LIR and NN but it was malt heavy and kind of flat. Not sure why they keep making it tbh...
  14. I'm curious too cuz I love lucky 13!

    Imperial Red is quite a bit different than Lucky 13 if I remember correctly. Signature Lagunitas hop profile with a sweet, nutty malt background that you'd expect in a red ale. Isn't Lucky 13 a wheat beer?
  16. Lucky 13 is an american amber at 8.9%

    Imperial Red is a terrific beer, I would hate to see it go away

    Oh forgot about that one...I was thinking of the Lucky 13.alt which I believe is wheat based

    Love NN!! All time favorite, can't wait to pick some up! LIR is pretty close to it though, unfortunate that we won't see any.....:(

    I've given this beer three chances. Twice on tap and once out of a bottle. Garbage every time. It's a shame too because Ballast Point is a top 3 brewery for me.

    I think I read that they do it every other year. Don't know why that is standing out in my mind. I loved this beer last year, but don't remember having it around the year before.
