Lagunitas Lucky 13.alt ....

Time for a "bomber" for the holiday: Lucky 13.alt from Lagunitas Brewing Company.  8.8% ABV and 60 IBUs are shown on the 1 pint, 6 ounce bottle.  This is a limited version of one of their seasonals.

This beer poured with a medium to thicker, creamy colored head.  Beer color is a very golden amber.  Very clear.  The aroma is fairly mild; citrus, some sweetness, a little pine, a floral note.  There is a smoothness and higher alcohol quality, much like an Imperial IPA.  Citrus, pine, caramel sweetness.  A smooth, consistent bitterness in the background.  Nice carbonation/mouth feel; not quite fizzy.  Medium bodied.  Very mild bitter aftertaste.  Very nice; I enjoyed that it seemed like a slightly milder Imperial IPA.
