4.33/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle got in a trade with mjl21...thanks for everything Mike!

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow/orange color. Nice one finger off white head that goes away rather quickly leaving some thin sticky lacing.

S- This smells not like most wheat beers. The upfront smell of course is wheat but right behind that is some citrus hop smell (grapefruit and some mango) along with hints of piney hops as well.

T- Once again this is not like most wheat beers at all. Big citrus hop kick right upfront that I enjoy in most IPA's which kicks into a kind of piney hop and wheaty taste and ends with more of a citrus hops burst I think. Overall not like a wheat at all but more like IPA as far as taste is concerned.

M- This is a light to medium light mouthfeel to it. There is good carbonation to this beer making it dance over the palate when you sip it. It leaves a nice little hop resin on the tounge letting you taste it long after it's gone. The aftertaste is a nice piney hop with a little citrus in there as well.

D- This is a very drinkable beer to say the least. I am glad I got a couple of bottles of this in a trade. The sad thing is I already drank the two I got. If I could get this in my state I would drink this all the time. Too bad like most beers I enjoy a lot I can't get it. Very good beer!

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.
