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 (1505) - 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. PugUglyBrewer (706) - - APR 13, 2017
Clean and clear shiny copper color with a big head of creamy white foam. Caramel malt, dried pineapple and prune, light grapefruit sting, all finishing with a mildly dry pine needle and wood cutting into the malt backbone. ABV is hidden all too well with more light, refreshing qualites thana beefy stomach churning execution. A great strong ale. Chudwick (3240) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 13, 2017
12oz bottle with no date - very bitter. like most Lagunitas "American Strong Ale" this is muddled and not really easy to figure out the flavors. It’s boozy and full of bitterness with a slick finish.

Flaska från SB. Kopparfärgad klar vätska med högt fluffigt skum. Fruktig doft av inlagd persika och kolaremmar med tallskott i bakgrunden. Söt smak som lyckas att inte bli för tung eller sliskig och någonstans ganska lätt trots rejäl kropp. Smak som doften och rena smaker och bra balans och ganska snäll beska. Riktigt gott.

Bottle from Systembolaget Sweden.
Big, fluffy and lasting off white head. Chrystal clear orange amber color. Mild caramel aroma. Big hoppy taste with a big caramell balance. Not overly sweet but still much caramel and firm bitterness. Perfect body to balance the bitterness nd the alcohol. mzaar (3492) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2016
Flaska. Klar mörkorange med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter av grapefrukt, torkad frukt, karamell och kåda. Smakinslag av karamell, malt, trä, frukt och alkohol. Medel mot stor kropp. Värmande alkohol. StevieT (2015) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2016
From a bottle. Delicious deep smooth malt body with biscuit flavours, a hit of fruit on the back, dangerously drinkable for such a strong beer. Cool_Bond (2707) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2016
Dried fruits, alcohol and dark berries in the smell. The taste is the same with a little sweetness. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Okay beer but tastes more alcohol toward the end. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
