tap at the stable-st louis-copper hue with a soappy off-white head. hoppy, malty nose with touches of pine, carmel, resin and pine. piney hops, sweet malt to back it with some resin on the finish. a pretty straight-forward balanced ASA with equal parts hop and malt. long piney finish with sweet notes lingering in there as well. body is somewhat sticky feeling. a decent brew!

Not exactly what I expected, but pretty mean nonetheless. Dark red-brown with not much head, smells awesome sort of hoppy and sweet-ish, medium body with lingering mouth. Taste is straightforward, similar to their imperial red but lighter on the hops, not very complicated but very good. Lagunitas rarely disappoints and this is no exception.

Sledutah (5738) - Utah, USA - APR 23, 2010
22oz from BevMo
Appearance: Clear dark ruby with a nice foamy off-white head and lots of lacing in the glass
Aroma: Pine, dark fruits, caramel and citrus
Taste: Silky mouthfeel. Pine, dark malts and citrus with some hop bitterness in the finish
This is a great beer. Well balanced with plenty of hop aroma and taste and the malts to back it up without being sweet.

22oz bomber. Pours brown with amber and red highlights and a thin light tan head. Aroma is awesome - resiny and evergreen, covered with caramel and orange marmalade - subtle chocolate and toffee qualities. Flavor is tingly bittersweet, full of resiny pine needle hops. Some toast and toffee and some grassiness towards midpalate. Bitter finish with dryness and some alcohol. Mouthfeel is lighter than expected - fluffy from carbonation with lots of tickle and sting on the tip of the tongue. Strong drying sensation from alcohol. Medium body that feels fuller, almost syrupy, as carbon dioxide is released from swishing it in the mouth. Overall - fantastic beer. Love the wonderful aromatic hop quality.

fuzzywasabeer (35) - boise, Idaho, USA - APR 23, 2010
22. pours a dirty red-brown with small copper head. strong nose of hops and more hops. taste of sweet baked alcohol. thin soda-esque messy feel. Dry thirsty finish. Looks smells and tastes pretty good but that’s were it stops being pretty good and turns kinda good.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 23, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin-moderate off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left light lace. Malty? WTF! If the aroma is any indication, this thing is a hop monster. The aroma is pine, pine and more pine with no malt to speak of. There is a some mild malt in the flavor, but as in the aroma, is dominated by resinous pine. Strong bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2010
Cask. Pours an amber brune body with an off white head. Green grassy hop tones, floral notes, light herbal and grassy body with a mild bitterness. A bit slick with some light hop resins. Nice ale.

Bottled. Pours brown/amber with a mimimal off white head. Smells of alcohol, fruit, and hay. Flavors include grapefruit, raisin, and malt. It is a medium sour, medium bodied, moderately bitter beer. It finishes long with overwhelming malt and chocolate.Pretty good.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2010
Good looking brew with a frothy head. Nice aroma with a combo of clean, metalic, pine and light malt. The flavor is just a malty mess. That’s all I can realy say about the flavor. Sticky mouth feel full body. Whatever.
