This brew goes big in flavor, power, style, & delivery. Rich, autumn color with a gorgeous orange-cream head. Fantastic mouthfeel lets you experience all of the malts, fruity hops, & bitters in a delicious palate of flavor. One of my all-time favorites. Seasonal release for May but you can usually find it until late summer. Definitely one of Lagunitas' most successful brews.

A: Rich Red, almost copper body. Poured from a bottle into a lily glass. 2 inches of head initially and a smaller .5-1 inch white head for the remainder of the beverage. Lacing throughout.

S: Rich Malty smell with a fruity hop nose.

T: Slightly alcoholic tasting and more bitter than the nose would have you believe. A beer to be sipped and savored. Fruity hops, tangerines, strawberries and grapefruit. Classic C hop profiles. Rich malt flavor for a sweet, smooth swallow and after taste.

M: Malty and rich

O: One of my favorite beers from this brewery and in general. If you are looking for a great American take on a red ale look no further.

A - dark reddish amber with a huge, off white, dense head that has great retention and leaves a ton of lacing

S - pineapple, pine, sugar, caramel, grapefruit

T - pine, cake batter, sugar, caramel, grapefruit, pineapple, mildly bitter finish

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a fantastic amber ale. It has a great malt character but an even more profound, deep hop character. The balance and drinkability here is fantastic and the ABV is no where to be found. This is really a good beer.
