3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden copper color with a rich, tan, well-retaining head. Some light toffee aromas are barely noted through the monster west coast hop profile. Wet mouthfeel with moderately harsh hop heat. Toasted malt does all it can to adequately provide a backbone for this hop giant. But it brought a knife to a gunfight.

This beer smelled very hoppy yet the taste was mostly a thick yet smooth malt. Nice heavy palate with a sizeable head. Hints of caramel and slightly boozy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lagunitas Imperial Red Ale has a thin, off-white head, a semi-clear, rust-red appearance, bubble streams, lots of white, cottony sediment, and some lace curtain left behind. The aroma is of pink grapefruit, medium-roasted malts, and bread crust. Taste is of those elements, with sweetness and a touch of yeast. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Lagunitas Imperial Red Ale finishes semi-dry and quite refreshing. No alcohol pick-up in the flavor. RJT

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful red color, with plenty of head. Looks really good in a glass, with the white head fueled by the dancing bubbles making their way up. Good aroma.
First sip resulted in a white mustache and a pleasant warm sensation. It is extremely smooth and the carbonation clears the pallet quickly. I normally consider this as a bad thing, but for this beer it just begs me to take another sip.

A really extraordinary red ale. Tons of flavor from caramel and honey to buttered toast and butterscotch. Perfect hop-malt balance. Pours a rich golden with a medium head.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is stray with some hops. Pours amber with a medium white head. Taste is heavy hops and fruit. Palate is fittingly stray and sticky. Overall a really pleasant beer which reminds much of a DIPA.
