Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a reddish tobacco color with minimal head, decent lacing actually though. Smells of pine and biscuity malt..

The taste? It is one boozy sucker. I get some good resiny hop, but alcohol heat is forward throughout . There is a decent malty backbone here, but once again overshadowed by the alcohol. It is honestly slightly reminiscent of a barleywine to me. Not really too much else to say here.

Mouthfeel is thick , medium carbonation. Overall I do like this beer but I probably wouldn't buy a six pack of it. I think the bottle I had was a little on the old side so I'd be interested in trying this one fresh on tap at 2 brothers. That being said, it's not really a style I have a lot of experience in but I think it's worth a try.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

And here ends the 15-part celebration of the brewery's fifteenth anniversary, complete with no obvious mention of the fact. Nice. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear blood-garnet topped by a finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, toasted biscuit, light rye bread, mandarin orange, and a touch of leek in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a healthy dose of fruit rind and a decent addition of pine resin. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a very nice imperial red, one gushing with hops without burning the tongue, and one brimming with booze without forcing a cringe or grimace. Not a bad capstone, really.
