Aroma: great smell! Nice hops and malt balance, smell of pine and sweet malt.

Taste: taste follows the nose, im a little sick so it is hard to judge. Ill post more detailed notes next time.

Mouthfeel: great for this style. Has a little heft that is just perfect!

Overall: love it! Glad lagunitas just released the lucky 13, because i can't get this often!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice clear golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, grapefruit, pine, sweet caramelly malts and some honey.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some tropical notes of grapefruit and citrus, some resiny pine, sweet honey and some caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Overall: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.
