4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tantilizing lemon/orange-esque aroma upon pour. Little head retention. Color is a medium orange. Thought it was going to be darker. Poured from a pounder bottle.
Taste is succulent and reminds me a bit of Blue Moon. This would be a summer beer for me. I am impressed with the overall floral and fruit smell. The beer is definitely high quality and deserves a spot in most everyone’s beer cooler.
With this high ABV, I like the mild drinkability of this brew. Not overly hoppy and good malt flavorings.

22oz bottle pour; pale auburn. My wife had a taste and asked to share the bottle. Classic Lagunita taste: balanced hops, bitterness and malts. Light sweetness. High ABV is covered by the smooooth taste. I will definitely buy again.

This is a great red ale. Medium head and medium dark reddish golden color. Hops are just right, but the malt flavors are wonderful, complex and very aromatic. The ale has a wonderful aroma. Great.

The taste is quite boozy, but it’s still pretty smooth and drinkable. It has a red tint and a sticky head. A good beer.

A. Fantastic! Ap. Wowzers! T. Pow! P. Mama mia! O. My God! This beer is B. A. Starts with a great hop burst aroma from a clean clear pour that leaves a ton of lacing. Taste is citrus with a touch of alcohol. Palate starts bitter and turns to sweet malt. This beer has it all. A must must try. Cameron Crazies drive me crazy.

Good pour, nice red amber with good head and lacing. Smell is soapy hops and caramel. Taste has that initial cloying sweetness which I dislike in red ales, although not as bad as most. A good hopping helps it. Alcohol is sneaky though.

clear Cu color, medium cream head. strong smell of hops, IPA style flavor. Upfront taste that is more mild than initial bite. Well balanced thirst quencher.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Clear copper with thick tan head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is heavy caramel malt, with piney hops. Taste is similar. Not much alcohol noticeable here for a strong ale. Mouthfeel is smooth and a bit thick. Overall, decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
