Great clarity and redness to the beer, 1" head, off white. Aroma imparted a lot of that red malt woodsiness, hops were behind that.

Now the hopes hit you in the taste, they definitely ramp up the bitterness of this one. Minor malt residual sweetness. I dunno if they just changed the name for Lucky 13 or these are discernably different beers. Its a pretty standard high IBU imperial red for Lagunitas, you know what you're getting into if you've already had a few dozen Lagunitas beers. Hides the alcohol well.
