Review from 6/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark red amber. Minimal off-white head with light lacing. Nice pine and citrus hop start with a medium sweet malt body. Citrus hop finish and lingering aftertaste. Medium bodied. Delicious.

Pours a clear golden color. There is a discernable peach tint as the beer leaves the mouth of the bottle and waterfalls into the glass. A foamy, off white head appears and lingers, but for no longer than the average ale. There is a wonderful, rich aroma of butterscotch offset by sweet citrus. Creamy mouthfeel that almost seems misplaced. A mild scrubbing appears on the rear of the tongue, likely due more to hop heat than carbonation, as the beer finishes. The flavors are complex. Not necessarily complimentary, but interesting. Sweet, bold malt brings an undeniable, vibrant toffee flavor, followed immediately by some pretty obtrusive hop resin. This is a pretty large effort on the part of Lagunitas for number 13. I like it because it is irreverent and disrespectful, but quite good.
