Fresh bottle from somewhere local, most likely Beach Liquor. Pretty bold aroma and flavor of dark, sweet malt and medium bitterness from citrus hops and a hint of pine. Pretty nice and the almost 9 ABV is well hidden. Block (3288) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Nice hops in the aroma and flavor. Well balanced. Malty backbone. Alcohol is masked. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2017
Red amber body and stable head. Nice balanced aroma with cara malts and lots of pine hops. Super nice taste, smooth yet bitter, drinkable yet complex. Great great stuff! (Bottle from and at Caroline’s, Berkeley) ozzy70 (1430) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 25, 2017

Tap @Ølfestival 2017. Pours deep orange with a small, staying creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, caramel, solid fat resiny hop, light vinious. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, caramel, doughy, hops are resiny, some citrus, grapefruit. Lingering, warming bitterness. Nice.

Disappointing... a mislabeled grumpy IPA if there ever was one. Looks
nice in the glass - that’s about it. What does it taste like? Take what might
have been a decent IPA, dump a bunch of grapefruit and a bit of soap in
it, and you’re pretty much there. If I want IPA, I’ll buy freakin’ IPA. If I want
a red ale, I expect a red ale. Down the drain, never again. oobawa (2022) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Big, gentle giant hoppy red, packing in the resinous IBUs while offsetting them with a hefty sweet malt core. Lagunitas orange marmalade hops on top of buttered toast, some caramel and pine underneath. Clingy with its bitterness, yet the citrus-tinged middle balances out the assault. Never feels quite as balanced as it should be, but drinkable nonetheless. StoutAndYummy (2) - California, USA - APR 14, 2017 does not count
WEAK!!!! I was so disappointed when I cracked open and tasted this triple IPA with red food coloring mismarked as a red ale. I like lagunitas for the most part, I love reds, and I REALLY like the number 13, so after a hard day at work I was ecstatic to see this in the beer aisle of my local grocery store. Then I got home tasted it and gagged, why did you have to ruin it with all the hops? 5000 IBUs in a red . . . really!?! The shelves are already wall-to-wall IPA, Double IPA and Triple IPA. . . . just make a red a red, or label it properly (see above). Again, very disappointed. Brewmaster, take a trip to Ireland and tell me if ANY of their reds taste remotely like Lucky 13.
