look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance: Crystal clear amber color with a two finger light beige head

Smell: Caramel malt and piney, citrus hops

Taste: Starts off with caramel and brown sugar, then citrus (grapefruit, lemon) that carries into the aftertaste. Too sweet for me

Mouthfeel: Medium body; Well carbonated, maybe a little too much, with significant bitterness and astringency

Overall: Not impressed and one of my least favorite "hoppy" beers from lagunitas. The sweetness almost seems generic with not enough malt flavor to match. It does open up a little bit as it warms, but also gets boozier. Finishes a bit bitter and astringent for my liking. Decent, but not something I will seek out in the future.
