12oz bottle into tulip snifter.
Pours a lightly hazy dark yellow, with a thin white head.
The aroma is very hoppy, with juicy grapefruit and pineapple upfront.
Tropical fruits are also the focus of the taste as well, though they are a bit more balanced out by some light pine hop notes. There are some faint wheat and pale malt notes in the backing. There are no hints of alcohol from the relatively high ABV.
The mouthfeel is fairly medium bodied with a crisp finish.
This definitely is one of the hoppier wheat beers I have tried, or it could just pass as an IPA brewed with some wheat. Either definition works. A very easy drinking beer, especially considering the ABV.

4.24/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured bottle into glass. 7.5 % abv
Appearance- Pours a translucent golden yellow with a lively two finger head that hangs around.
Smell- Ripe orange along with grapefruit citrus hints. Sweet bready malt as well.
Taste- A fresh toasted biscuit malt flavor arrives and quickly develops into a strong wheat character. This wheat flavor blends along nicely with the citric hop bitterness as the two tastes co-mingle with each other. This wheat/hop taste pairing of this beer is interesting and different to me. Very easy drinking.
Mouthfeel- Surprisingly light and thin for the vibrant taste and 7.5 percent abv. Well done.
Overall- A very interesting and delicious beer that is both wheaty and hoppy. A top among the APWA style for sure. As my first Lagunitas beer I was impressed. A must try for those seeking a tasty and potent warm weather brew.
