22 oz bomber. Pours a dark amber with a finger of tan head. Malty aroma, with a roasted malty taste to match. Sweet undertones throughout that cling to the palate, hoppy taste throughout with a mild bitter finish. The alcohol is barely noticeable in this one.

Misc.: Thought I had already rated this, but that was the Lucky 13 alt
Poured a dark caramel copper clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of white head. Good amount of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention as well. Best part of the beer by far.
Smelled malty floral hops up front. Reminded me of an imperial IPA or DIPA. Earthy, malty, a bit like a strong pilsner. Caramel, bread and rye hops.
Tasted pretty close to the smell. Earthy rye hops, heavy malts, caramel, copper, some lemon, pine and a bitter feeling on the tongue after.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
Not a big fan of this beer. Part of that was expecting something more with it being Lagunitas, but this just didn’t hit the spot. I would not have it again.

Bottle, aroma is pine and citrus, appearance is clear reddish brown with thin white head, taste is fruity pine and lemon grass witha little hops the disappears quickly. This is a really good beer that has everything going for it and appeals to all. Very balanced and very interesting.

I see a continuous pattern with beer brewed by Lagunitas either tasty or strong but this beer has both. I initially bought it because of the high alcohol content and the old school tattoo flash label. My new favorite deuce-deuce!

Draft at shortys NYC in Fidi. This is a very flavorful fruity hoppy and strong ale. Decent taste. Boozy as it warms. Can't believe I haven't rated this yet

Pours a clear, orangey amber with minimal white head. Aroma’s of strong maltiness with a biscuit nose and some slight orange/citrus notes. Flavors are sweet with a very mild hop bitterness to clean-up at the end. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and fairly well-masked 8.5% ABV. A nice Imperial Red?
