4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into a Lagunitas glass on 08.20.14.
A: Red grapefruit and sweet malt.
A: 2 finger off-white head that stays the entire time. See through red body.
T: Burnt red grapefruit dominates. Sweet malt as a base and pine are subtle.
O: There is a nice bitterness on the back end that fades into sweetness. The red grapefruit flavor is delicious. It is hop forward for an amber (red, whatever), but it’s the Lagunitas style and it works very well.

Caramel, hops, citrus. One of my favorite reds. Starts smooth and gets sweeter as you go. Big and heavy drink full of flavor and life.
