3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
How is it possible that I’m the 2nd rating of this brew and I’m in San Diego? On tap at O’Brien’s for one of the best days ever. Ruby caramel in color with appropriate head. Taste is malty sweet red with sharp hoppiness. Not dissimilar to the Lagunitas profile. More like an Impreial red.

BO hoppiness to the nose with some freshness and caramel. Bitter and fully west coast in hop flavor. Pretty awesome.
