Blonde version of Lucky 13, released in 2011 and 2012.
From the first day of the first mash of the first recipe in the first brewhouse in the first space to this oasis 13 years on the road; We have worked hard to walk in the footsteps of our hero brewers- The Noble Brewer of the planet’s only legal Steam Beer, and Oregon’s Rebel Brewer from Newport. Thirteen years down the road, we have found our own voice as brewers but our admiration for the Great Ones has not dimmed one bit. If we walked well down the hero’s path ourselves, perhaps we too have been an inspiration for others. Beer is a Bronze Age business and we feel honored to have left our footprints on it’s path into history, at the same time leaving our flavors on your buds. Thanks for your trust over the years and we hope you enjoy this specialty breweed Hi-Gravity Auburn offering.

Bottle pours a gold/copper with a thin lacing white head. Scent is fresh cut pine and caramel. Taste is citrus sweet and piney bitter. Good stuff.

On tap at The Federal, Durham. Handsome pour, like the regular Lucky 13, a gleaming deep orange with faint cloudiness and sediment, and a nice thick one-finger head. Nose is aggressively hoppy still, but with a sweet smooth addition that’s both Alt in style (or so it seems, given the hefty malt additions) and alt in variation. Sharp citrus and dry hops are everywhere in the taste, but there’s a ripe yeast and sweet toffee at the core that give this one its distinction from the base. Enjoyable too.

Mildly hazy with a thin white head. Sweet tangerine and grapefruit hop aroma. Taste is sweet and lemony, with red grapefruit backbone that fades into resiny bitterness and alcohol. $5/22oz

This will be good - smells awesome as soon as I cracked the cap. Light amber, totally clear with a small white cap that sticks to everything. Excellent aroma - face full of citrus and pine hops, orange, apricot, lemon, sweetness and lots of it, sticky caramel and rrgf. Just smells so yummy. Great taste after the first sip and never quits. Big sweet, bitter tangy mess that satisfies constantly. Caramel, floral and citrus melded to perfection, rrgf, pine, light alcohol, nectarine, melon, goodness. Creamy, rich, more than medium bodied, malty, bitter and fruity finish. I dig. Not that different than other Lag brews but who cares?

Growler from the brewery. Poured into a Lagunitas mason jar glass. Color is a deep orange/amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is a touch of sweet caramel malt and a ton of resinous and citrusy hops. Flavor matches the aroma well. Hops are definitely at the forefront of this beer, like most Lagunitas offerings. Palate is slightly astringent with light carbonation and a nice warming from the 8+% ABV. Overall a very good beer.

An extremely sweet aroma. The flavor isn’t quite as sweet as the aroma, which is good. A bit sticky sweet still, but some dry hops in the finish.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2011
22oz bottle. The beer is a clear reddish brown with some off-white head. Classic Lagunitas hop aromas of resin and grapefruit with lots of bready malt as well. Flavor is malty up front with a nice hop bite. Toffee, caramel, floral hops. My only complaint with this beer is it started to be a bit too sweet for me which made it difficult to get through the bomber.

650ml brown bottle. Golden pour, clear. Small creamy white cap. Lots of sweetness in the aroma, deep caramel, brown sugar, also has citrusy hops. Flavour has a lot of malt sweetness, some toasty notes with a lot of caramel and toffee with cutting grapefruit bitterness. Some brown sugary, toffeeish malt in the finish with late acidic hops that linger. Some alcohol present. Medium body and average level of carbonation.

Reid (2276) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2011
22 oz bottle from "Habits" in S.Salem. $3.69 Clear and darkish golden beer with a huge,thick and frothy off white head. Extremely pungent hop aromas,resiny and deeply herbal..some caramel malts also appear. Taste is well balanced with a huge chewy caramel/toffee malt presense and an equally terrific dank resiny hop over load..a titanic clash!..hops win in the end though. Ok on the palate..the two immense competitors meld well. A good beer but not one of Lagunitas best.
