Pours a hazy copper hue with a tight, one-inch, cream-colored head. Nose expresses notes of caramel and earthy/piney hops. Taste consistent with nose. Very malt forward; however, some oxidized notes come out towards the back. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (closer to medium) with an even carbonation and a slight prickle. Overall, a solid amber albeit perhaps a hint past its prime.

A clear beer with a dark amber color. Two finger high, beige-white head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass - It looks tasty!

Nose: Orange marmalade, pine, honey, caramel malt, mango and pineapple.
Taste: Orange, mango, pineapple, grape and caramel malt.
Mouth: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation.

I'm quickly becoming a big fan of the imperial red ale's like this one. Malty, smooth and packs a punch!

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle
Served in a Lagunitas Jar
Bottled on: April 14th, 2016
Reviewed on: August 14th, 2016

Eyes
Clear amber body with a massive off-white head. Tons of lacing, super sticky looking. Body was clean for the most part but a layer of particles, almost looked like yeast from a Wit, gathered at the bottom of the glass.

Nose
Sweet malts dominated the aroma. Caramel. Pine. Touch of mango, pineapple, and orange.

Taste
Tropical hops: mango, pineapple, orange, and a light bitter layer of grapefruit. Dense layer of caramel-heavy malts. Finished out semi-dry with a flare-up of herbal hops.

Mouthfeel
Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation. Consistency felt heavier as the beer warmed up, consume quickly!

Notes
Big ale! Hops and malts were well represented. This review was based on a bottle with 4 months on it and I gotta say, it did not lose much punch! Yet another great offering from Lagunitas.

This beer pours a very clear pale amber with a large head. The aroma is complex, with pine, citrus, pineapple, green apple, candy, cinnamon, and earthy dank hops. The flavor is a bit more contained, with bright resin, candy, citrus, and some earthy spice. The mouthfeel is bright and medium bodied. Overall this is a really nice beer - the flavor is very complex, but everything is also integrated, making a single great whole.
