Good deceived me at first smells like a single IPA but once you take your first sip you realize it's a pale ale. Not a huge fan of pale ales but this was good. Would I purchase this beer again most likely not, but that's mainly because I do not care for the pale ale style. Would I recommend this beer to someone who does enjoy pale ales.... Hell yes!

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

A: 4.5 Quite clear. Pale golden orange with a large, fluffy looking, off-white head with a good amount of lacing.

S: 4.5 Sweet citrus (mostly orange with some grapefruit) at first, with lots of pine and dank following soon after. An interesting dry, earthy smell after the beer opens up a bit; I can’t quite identify it, but it almost has oaky, vanilla, chardonnay-like qualities.

T: 4 More sweet and less hops than I was expecting. Orange still dominates with a slightly minerally flavor and some light, piney hops in the background. Finishes with a little bitterness.

M: 4.25 The mouthfeel is quite good. It’s fairly thick and the finish has a pleasant dryness. It could use just a little more carbonation.

O: 4.25 The aroma is just great, but the flavors don’t quite match up. A very good beer, but with Lagunitas there are better options.

A - lightly carbonated, pale yellow orange clear. Light finger and half head, slighly off white, settles to half inch.

S - heavy piney hops. Reminds me of a bag of chronic skunk bud! Deep citrus grapefruit aromas. This wheat ale smells like an IPA. smelling the bottle after empty I can smell some of the malts, honey, yeast.

T - Crisp, hoppy but not too bitter. The malts are up front and hops take over and linger for awhile finishing cleanly. Citrus flavor throughout this beer.

M - Med/light body, carbonation provides a zip to it. Well blended beer.
