I really love this Imperial Red. It's big and hoppy with a lot of complexity. Don't confuse this with an IPA, this hoppy monster finishes smooth.

22 oz bottle. This beer’s huge aroma is resinous, piney, and very malty, with hints of graham cracker, biscuit, red apple, and hay. Mouthfeel is thick, sweet, and bitter from the beginning to long into the aftertaste. Ridiculously delicious beer! shpongloid24 (8) - Harper Woods, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014 does not count
Amazing red ale filled with flavor. Had a star fruit like aroma and was a beautiful deep red color. Medium head, white/ offwhite in color with a small amount of lacing. Great flavors both bold and subtle. Wish I could lick the glass. ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 7, 2006
Nose of heavy pine & citrus, no shortage of spicy burnt hops. Can’t wait to taste it.
Pours a sparkling copper. The tall creamy bone head is fully lasting and leaves exceptional
lace. The brew has a very exquisite balance in addition to a huge hops blast. The finish is
a toasted masterpiece. The medium body is soft and creamy, the finish feels dry. Make no
mistake, this is a HUGE beer. This is on par with anything from Stone, Alesmith, or 3
Floyds. Wow! Gobot (20) - commerce twp, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2010
This is a ridiculously good beer. If you like big, heavy, hoppy beers, then this is for you. Out-IPAs the best of them. Supremely balanced. I would buy a 6-pack of this in a heartbeat. Outstanding!

Poured from the bottle, aroma is very pleasantly hopped, smells like other lagunitas brews. Flavor is great. Nice balance of bitter and malt quite hoppy for a red which is great. Higher alcohol content is noticed. And this looks great in the glass. Clear red color with good head. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Pours clear, bright copper with a fluffy off-white head. Smells strongly malty, caramel, with some big hop notes. Taste is primarily hoppy with some solid malt backbone. Full-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Lagunitas Imperial Red finishes with a bitter kick. julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Poured from a 22oz. Color is a beautiful copper red. Aroma is a citrusy/clean crisp linen smell. Flavor is hoppy, but not "punch in the face hoppy". Has a sweet start and slightly sour finish. I taste some roasty malts to balance this out. Great Imperial! katrinaez (1894) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2014
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Exactly as stated. Deep red. Crisp red with the bite of imperial hops top kick you. The scent is sweet and hoppy but respectable. Tap jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 Deep red amber with creamy, off-white head / Sweet, floral, pine, and molasses nose / Medium body with big, sweet, malts and sharp, chewy, hoppy finish / Flavors of burnt sugar, molasses, toffee, pine, and grapefruit / A very malty double IPA.
