Why do I insist on ordering IPA's that travel great distances to get to me?

I hear this is a great IPA IF had FRESH. No idea. This beer had zero aroma, the faintest hint of bitterness, and was mostly sweet malt (yuk).

I'm sure Lagunitas deserves better than this rating but if they're going to ship their beer all over the place, hey this is the bitter truth.
