Lagunitas Imperial Red

Lagunitas Imperial Red, originally uploaded by adambarhan.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper body with a white, diminishing head. The lacing was thin.

Smell: Caramel malts in the nose with a nice bit of toastiness. The hops are piney with fruity undertones.

Taste: Light bready caramel malts joined by crisp, hoppy flavors of pine resins and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with a pleasingly smooth mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Though the hops can be a little cutting at times its a rather likeable red ale.
