Lagunitas Imperial Red Ale

Quite why I had never bothered to pick this up in Atlanta is totally beyond me, but I suspect that the lack of 22oz bombers (only sixers) of it had something to do with it. Finally got around to trying in on tap at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA.
Superb looking beer. Deep, dark crimson color and perfectly formed head. Looks VERY inviting.
This beer has ALL of the attributes of an American Strong Ale. Great malt presence, delicious hop profile and the two marry together just about perfectly. Slight bitterness from the citrus based piney hops. Alcohol is there but also blends beautifully. Silky mouthfeel top the package off nicely.
Very well put together brew. Simple, balanced and delicious.
