COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 planetís only legal Steam Beer, and Oregonís 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 heroís 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 itís 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.

Tropical fruit on the nose, kiwi, mango, sweet. Pours golden blonde with a dense white head. Big hop flavor right off the bat, tropical fruits dominate with a bready sweetness and over laping earthy bitterness bringing them all together. Another good hoppy beer from Lagunitas!

22oz bottle, purchased at Popís, Suwanee, Ga. Auburn-Orange color, sticky white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, wheat, and fresh honey. Flavor of honey, caramel malts, a touch of wheat, and cotton candy. Complex hop character has a bit of wood, citrus, honey, and resin. Itís nice.

Just a amazingly amount of delicious hops...buckets and buckets of them. All tastes are of hop and then x. Perfect choice of hops. The malt is delicious, mellow for 9%, and nicely tucked behind the hops. Even with all these hops, 77IBUs sounds about right as the bitter isnít overwhelming. Tastes like it was dry hopped with equal parts beer to hops. Hop Stoopid and now this, Lagunitas found the secret to making the great hop bombs.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2011
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 47į. Color is a clear gold with good carbonation and a soft white head. Aroma is a big fresh hop scent. It has a lighter medium body and a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor has a touch of malt that gives it a sweet base but the hops jump in big with an orange candy like taste that turns more citrus in the end with a bold bitterness. In the after taste the citrus stands out and hangs on. Overall its a very tasty brew, definitely a unique and complex flavor.

Sweet, malty and complex. Notes of flowers, honey and sugar. Clean finish. Another solid effort from Lagunitas.

Iím not quite sure what separates this from the regular Lucky 13, but I sampled it on draft at the Craft Ale House. I donít recall a whole lot of difference. This version pours a dark golden color with a slightly orange hue. The head is of a decent size and laces nicely around the glass. The beer offers a prickly nose and mouthfeel, but in a good way. I get a sense of really spicy, floral and dry hops from both the nose and the body of flavors. The body is really smooth and delicious. The finish is floral, spicy, dry and sits very well on my palate.

PorterPounder (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Pours a medium copper with a thin, but persistent white head. Resiny hoppy spruce-like aroma. Flavor is bittersweet and citrusy. Touch of spearmint. Some back end syrupy sweetness rounds it out nicely. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Another solid entrant from Lagnitas - at 4.29 a bomber this could easily become a standby when nothing new to buy at the local.

GandGKevin (920) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Aromas of cut grass and cat pee. Citrusy hop flavors of tangerine, lemon and sweet malts. Overall a very good beer.

Bottle. Pours clear orange, frothy white head. Sweet malt/hop aroma, taste is a bit too sweet. Ok, not that great.

Very good tribute. This beer pours clear amber with a small white head. The aroma has a bit of malt, a lot of hops and a good deal of booze. The flavor Has that malty sweetness for a second or two and then gets the hops full force. Very clean and crisp. Well done.
