A- The worst part of the beer. Transparent golden with slight touches of amber and a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly, but at least laces the sides of the glass with its residue. very bubbly, fizzy-looking beer.
S- The smell is of pure hoppy fruitiness, like that of a DIPA.
T- It is difficult for me to believe that this is an "american pale wheat ale", because it tastes so much like an IPA. A big hop profile with only a hint of the wheat maltiness characteristic of its style. slightly fruity with a bitter end, although in the aftertaste the sweetness of fruit comes to the fore.
M- Certainly highly carbonated, which is not my favorite thing for a beer to be, although here it doesn't hurt too badly as this beer is perfect for a hot summer day. will definitely be taking this one up to Tahoe a few times this year. a light-medium body.
D- After a hot day, I might as well forget about having any of the two six packs I bought left over.

Served out of 12oz. bottle and poured into an American pint glass. The 6-pack was purchased at Jewel-Osco. I couldn't find any sort of date stamp on the bottle.
A - a nice orange body with a frothy and somewhat thick white head. Lacing along the entire glass for the duration of drinking the beer.
S - Smells like a hoppy IPA which is what I thought the style of this beer was before looking it up on here. There is deffinately the citrus orange/grapefruit scent to this beer that is typical of an IPA which brought around my confusion.
T - Grapefruit and pine tasting with a hint of wheat. The after taste really brings out the wheat and makes you want to go ahead and drink some more.
M - Bitter and crisp feeling on the mouth with a decent amount of carbonation. Leaves your mouth with a nice dry finish.
O - This is a delicious beer and my favorites from Lagunitas which is hard for me to say because I love almost everything that they make. One of my most favorite beers overall and clear go to when nothing else sounds good.
