A - cloudy yellow, sticky white lacing that sticks from the beginning to the end of the glass. Beautiful.
S - the hops hit my nose before I even poured. Pine hops foreward, floral, with a slight citrus funk. Beautiful.
T - HOPS! Pine hops, citrus rind, buscuity malts. This is absolutely delicious.
M - crisp and smooth. Med carbonation, slight sting/afterburn from the massive hops and alcohol. Very drinkable.
O - this beer is absolutely perfect for my taste, the hops and malts are balanced perfectly and leave the most delicious aftertaste. The only thing that is keeping this score excellent across the board is that I dont agree that this is an american pale wheat ale style, it is a straight up IPA, and it would be a perfect one.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. I am somehow just now finally getting around to reviewing this one; it has been years since I've last had this beer. Looking forward to having it again. Listed here as an American pale wheat ale, I always thought it was an IPA.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a bright juicy orange body. Light chill haze, with three big fluffy fingers of white head. Very good head retention for the high 7.50% abv. Good thick scattered white lacing. Looks very nice.
S - The nose has all of the traditional aromas of a hoppy IPA - orange, grapefruit, papaya, pine, fruit rinds. Some soapiness present. A juicy tropical fresh smelling aroma.
T - Taste follows the nose - big bitter grapefruit / orange rinds, piney, herbal, hoppy. Lemongrass / wheat presence. The wheat is more noticeable on the taste than on the aroma. Very nicely balanced.
M - Feel is crisp, creamy, and bitter. Resinous piney hops. Dry on the finish. Light bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, a delicious beer from Lagunitas, it's easy to see why this is one of their flagship beers. Deliciously drinkable.
