22oz bottle served in a Unibroue snifter.
Pours a deep butterscotch color with orange highlights and some visible carbonation. The small sudsy head is short-lived but a moderate amount of sticky lacing is left on the glass. Lagunitas Lucky 13 has an aroma that is dominated by citric hops; indeed, a whiff of citrusy hops hit my nose almost immediately upon uncapping the bottle. It becomes a bit more piney and herbal upon warming. Light malts are also evident in the nose and obvious on the tongue where an obvious sweet component is found, and where this very hoppy smelling beer is largely tamed by the sweet malts and ends up only mildly bitter even in the finish. The flavor include suggestions of toffee, starfruit, oranges, candied grapefruit, honey, vanilla, caramel and some faint herbs.

M: The feel is relatively full (medium+ body) and smooth for an imperial red.

O: Excellent, with great balance and well-hidden alcohol. Similar to Lagunitas Imperial Red Ale, i think, which I'd love to have available in a simultaneous tasting.
