A: Poured out a clear copper color with two fingers of off white head. Lacing all around the glass.

S: Biscuit, orange, grapefruit and tropical fruit.

T: Hello hops! Never would've expected them from the nose, but pleasantly surprised. Big flavors of tropical fruit and caramel. Hop flavor seems to be of the earthy variety.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation. Some alcohol warming sensation but its not too bad. Honestly wasn't expecting any warming sensation at all, since ABV is less than 9%.

O: A very, very good red ale. I've had a few different red ales and they are either very boring or too hoppy. This one seems to find the right balance of hop and malt for the style. Another win for Lagunitas!

This is quite possibly my favorite Red Ale... it hits all of the right marks and its delicious to boot... nice rich malty sweetness that is bolstered by a big wave of piney hoppiness and finishes long and smooth... its a very sneaky ABV as it drinks quite easily... terrific to look at with a pungent aroma... a terrific beer...

Appearance - a bright reddish orange, sparkling clear with a 1/4 finger or cream colored head that rapidly dissipates.

aroma- slightly piney with tropical fruit and citrus. a touch of candy jolly rancher- ish

taste- the hop balance i think works well. its not to bitter, it finishes smooth.toasted carmel gives way to a mango/passionfruit finish.

Mouthfeel- some alcohol warmth good carbonation

Overall- this is a fantastic beer. if i was shopping for a big red ale, this would be it ! The only thing I would like to see is a tad more head retention. Otherwise stellar.
