Lagunitas Imperial Red Ale

The Lagunitas Brewing Company is in Petaluma, California.  "Life is Uncertain.  Don't Sip."

This 7.8% ABV beer is a special release, and pours a reddish-copper in color.  There is a short head of somewhat creamy off-white foam.  The aroma is malty, caramel, zesty, tea with lemon.  The taste is a tenuous balance of malt and hops, wobbling towards the malty side.  Malty, caramel, strong tea with lemon.  The finish is smooth, malty, tart, fruity and bitter all at once.
