Appearance: Beautiful deep straw to light orange color with exceptional clarity for a wheat ale. Head disappated quickly for wheat. Did not have the expected foamy tight, white head.
Smell: Booming hops swirling with sweet malt in the aroma. Citrusy, piney and fruity. Loads of pineapple and ripe peach.
Taste: Here is where the wheat makes it appearance with a refreshing tart bite on the first sip that counters the malt backbone. Hops enter stage right behind that tartness, followed by a sweet, candy malt finish.
Mouthfeel: Hop bitterness, malt sweetness and wheat tartness battle for front stage on the tongue. A very unique and gratifying mouthfeel experience!
Drinkability: A unique and fun limited release from Lagunitas. A bit "big" all around for a summer ale. I would have enjoyed this more if the gravity was toned down so that I could enjoy on a hot summer day. Does not quench the thirst with a crispness as I would desire. Still a great beer that everyone should enjoy.
