12oz bottle into a wine glass.
Appearance: Free pour yields a one inch, fluffy white head that dissipates slowly, leaving thick rings of lacing. Pours a hazy amber. Lots of lacing left behind on the glass.
Smell: Orange, grapefruit, pineapple, and some grassy hops. Lots of beautiful hop aroma.
Taste: Orange, tons of hop flavor (grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, some apricot maybe). Very little malt; just a tiny bit of breadiness at the end. Decent bitterness. Delicious fruity hops are what's going on in this beer.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, pretty carbonated. Bright feel works great with all the hop flavor.
Drinkability: This beer is succulent and delicious; a great hop fix. Excellent summer beer.
I'm not tasting any wheat in here, though on their website Lagunitas coyly implies that there's only a slight wheat influence anyway. I'm grading this beer as something between an IPA and a DIPA; it's clear that the intention is to provide a nice, multifaceted hop treat to the drinker. It is successful.

Poured bottle into glass. 7.5 % abv
Appearance- Pours a translucent golden yellow with a lively two finger head that hangs around.
Smell- Ripe orange along with grapefruit citrus hints. Sweet bready malt as well.
Taste- A fresh toasted biscuit malt flavor arrives and quickly develops into a strong wheat character. This wheat flavor blends along nicely with the citric hop bitterness as the two tastes co-mingle with each other. This wheat/hop taste pairing of this beer is interesting and different to me. Very easy drinking.
Mouthfeel- Surprisingly light and thin for the vibrant taste and 7.5 percent abv. Well done.
Overall- A very interesting and delicious beer that is both wheaty and hoppy. A top among the APWA style for sure. As my first Lagunitas beer I was impressed. A must try for those seeking a tasty and potent warm weather brew.
