Poured from a bottle into a plain old pint glass. Huge head that never goes away. Great lacing. Slightly dark golden color. Great looking beer.
Smell is mild hops with nice malt. I think I want to drink this.
Taste is great. Mild hoppiness to start, malty- hoppy in the middle with a lingering hop that is very pleasant. Refreshing deliousness. The hops are definitely present but they don't whack you in the head, they just taste good.
Mouthfeel is perfect. Lightly carbonated and smoooth. This is a drinker.
Overall a very refreshing beer. Me and miss sumpin' will be spending some serious time together this summer. I tried this beer on a cool fall day and liked it ok, but its unseasonably warm today and after a long bike ride this is it. Lagunitas is a really good brewery.

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.
