From the bottle, amber red pour, small white head. Caramel malts and resin flavors in the nose. Taste is malty and alchool flavors with a little bitter bite. Not my favorite, but still pretty good.

Pours a nice looking copper brown. Malts and grapefruits in the nose. Caramel malt with a nice attack of bitterness, followed by red grapefruit and pine. Has a pleasant sweetness mixed in, too. Dry finish. The beer leans toward some bitterness, but a wonderful bouquet of aromas and flavors.

12oz bottle. Deep amber with some sediment and a foamy, beige head. Aroma of caramel, toast, citrus and pine resin. Flavor is bitter hops with a firm malt backbone and well hidden alcohol. Medium body with a sticky mouth feel. Another great beer from Lagunitas that balances out hops and caramel malt nicely and has a bit of an alcohol kick.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 ozer into a pint glass no date on bottle but it's fairly fresh. Pours a kinda ugly brownish red. Plenty of frothy white lacing. Piney hops are plentiful in the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium, not too lights don't too heavy. Taste is floral hops, dirt, pine and a bit I skunk. And of course that trademark Lagunitas yeast imparted flavor. Overall I wasn't impressed with this one. Many better red hoppy ales/ipas.

Pours a reddish bronze color. The aroma is mostly sweet malt and honey? The taste is malt with a hint of grapefruit. This beer is not nearly as hoppy as some of the other Lagunitas I have had recently. Not bad.

Bottle. Red amber with medium dense white head. Aroma brutal hoppy wit grape notes. Taste bitter and quite hopp dominated, grape and some malty sweetness in the body. Too aggressive and brutal for me.
