Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #43 (Aug 2010):

Hoppy wheat is what the beer geeks are callin' for. This beer has a thick, wheat-induced head and clear, pale amber color. It has some sweet breadiness underneath a big tide of hop aroma. It's super smooth and easy to drink. It has a thick flavor of soft, floral and fruity hops, and the bitterness is there, but nothing too sharp--more like dried grass or tobacco. This beer has a bit of a snappy, dry malt character and is faintly yeasty with some warming esters. The hops stay on the palate far into the aftertaste. This one has it all figured out--an amazing ale.

Bottle poured into a Lagunitas mason jar

A: Pours golden yellow with a frothy off white head.

S: Citrus hops and malt sweetness.

T: Juicy citrus and fruity hops, some tropical fruit and floral in there too, well balanced with caramel malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: One of my go to beers. Dangerously drinkable.
