look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Julian date 079....

A- Pours a light amber color with a full inch of off-white head that bears great retention time before slowly popping away to an 1/8 inch head. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a large ring behind on the glass.

S- Pungently aromatic hop aroma that's very citrusy and floral. Really quite awesome and one of the better bouquets on a Lagunitas beer which is saying a lot.

T- Medium-high grassy bitterness comes in along with a touch of wheat which is just enough to bring together the hoppy flavor profile. The bitterness lingers a bit but not too long and the alcohol is certainly noticeable but ends up being complementary overall.

M- A moderate hop bite and just a bit of sharpness from the booze. Medium carbonation and a body that's a bit on the lighter side.

O- One of my favorite Lagunitas beers. I always just assumed (as have many others) that it was an IPA because that's what it drinks like but lo and behold: it's a wheat beer and a damn delicious one at that.
