served on-tap @ Pequod's Pizza, Chicago, IL, into a pint glass

Pours like pretty much every good wheat does: hazy with a solid amount of white rocky head. Not much to say. It looks good.

The aroma is pretty fantastic for the style. This is only because of the hops. Vibrant, fresh, juicy hops. Nothing unusual here. Just the standard IPA aromas of grapefruit and pine and orange. A bit of tropicality (but not to the degree of, say, Boulevard 80-Acre).

This is a wheat IPA, even moreso than Gumballhead is. It's bursting with juicy hop flavor. But you can still taste the wheat backbone. The slight lemon quality from the wheat is accentuated by the citrus components from the hops. Delicious.

The mouthfeel is a tad slicker than most American Pale Wheat Ales, which tend to be pretty effervescent. This is due to all of the hop oils, no doubt. Still refreshing though. Overall this is about as good a beer as the pale wheat style can be.

Serving type: on-tap

I discovered this beer several years ago and was enamoured. I'd never had such a suculent tasting IPA before. I was a regular Sierra Nevada Pale Ale guy (which is my everyday) and the flavour here was a wake up call for me. I love this beer. This is one of the best I have ever had and I will grab it without hesitation from the shelf. And like most products from Lagunitas, I have enjoyed its subtlety beautiful flavor and consistency every time I buy it. If you ever have anyone offer this to you at a gathering or whatever, they deserve a kiss right on the mouth... per Lydia Loveless, and hopefully she looks like the Varga Girl on the label.
