look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a deep orange, somewhat clear, finger of white head, nice lacing

Smell is classic lagunitas, pine, citrus, oranges, sweet malt

Taste is very nice, citrus and pine hops up front, sweet malt rounding it all out, bittering grapefruit in the end, finishes dry

Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, light to medium mouthfeel.

Nice IPA, have had at it on many occasions, really enjoy it for a switch up from my usual standards, always consistent, well priced and fresh.

12oz bottle into a pint glass
number sequence that makes no sense to me in the only semblance of a bottle date

A: Pours a crystal clear, golden amber with just under 2 fingers width of slightly off-white colored head. A decent amount of carbonation bubbles can be seen rising to the top of the glass. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Piney and citrus hops, some sweet malts, a bit of orange. Nice but pretty tame aroma.

T: Malt forward, very much so. This may be old, damn encrypted bottle dating. Theres an almost smokey malt character. The hop presence is mostly faint piney bitterness.

M/D: Smooth for the style with appropriate carbonation. Drinkability is average.

O: A decent beer but pretty disappointing especially considering how I love so many other Lagunitas offerings.
