Pours a totally clear light bright orange with a very nice fluffy white head that retains very well and leaves great lacing.
Nose is actually more IPA than wheat beer. I can get the wheat base a bit, but it is clear that this is going to be a hop driven brew.
Well, taste balances it out a bit, but this is still pretty much an IPA. Hops don't jump out hard right away, but get progressively stronger as each sip progresses across the palate. A nice bitter finish is actually balanced out by a fairly strong malt presence coupled with a...
...mouthfeel that is much more viscous than i anticipated. Not soupy or anything, but just a touch higher than i like in an...IPAish...beer.
Drinkability is pretty strong. Lagunitas likes to over-malt the hell out of everything, but this is definitely an exception to the rule, as despite a somewhat viscous feel, the sweetness is tamed and balances the hop presence well without fighting for center stage. The abv feels about what it claims to be
Overall definitely the best lagunitas ive had in a while. Im not terribly amazed with it, but its a nice IPAish kind of thing, and i could easily put a couple away. A well crafted, and very well balanced beer, and one i will probably re visit with lethargic and intermittent regularity (or lack thereof). A well made...hoppy beer...

I really love how different this is! It has the fresh citrus and pine notes of an IPA with smooth, mellow undertones of orange peel and vanilla. It feels like an IPA and wheat beer working together and it is such a good combination! The overall product is fresh and citrusy with a smooth creamy finish. I plan on buying this again very soon.
