A: Pours a clear golden with a generous white head. Good retention that fades to a thin covering but lasts. good lacing.

S: Floral, grapefruit and a bit of pine are in the forefront. Sweet fruity malt aroma springs through the hops. A bit of apple and pear.

T: A bit of pine and grapefruit but surprisingly more balanced than a typical IPA with a bright fruit, apple malt sweetness coming through whit just a hint of wheat. Very pleasant sweet finish balances the earthy pine and grapefruit aroma hops. A modest bittering charge doesn't overwhelm the palate.

M: Medium light body, a tiny bit slick. low to medium carbonation lets flavors shine. No astringency.

O: This is one of my favorites by Lagunitas. It has all the aroma hops of an IPA without a harsh bittering charge. A perfect example of an APA. Perfect balance of malt sweetness and hops. I like that the wheat doesn't take over the flavor but plays well with the other ingredients. Well done.
