This is now my favorite beer, it was my 3rd try at American Hoppy Wheat beers. GumballHead, 80 Acre and then a Little Sumpin. Great cloudy color, terrific foamy head. I really like the citrus profiles these beers have. I like that it has a higher ABV%, the tangerine flavors don't cloud or fight the beer taste. I can't wait for the brewery to open up in Chicago.

Bottle poured into snifter.

A : golden amber clear color, white head that dissipates pretty quickly, great lacing.

S : Citrus-y hops with a piney smell to it.

T : A mild bitterness that disappears, then not sweet but fruity and flavorful.

M : Medium carbonation. Very little bitterness. Light to medium body goes down easy.

O : Pours great, smells excellent, and tastes even better. One of my favorites.

My first pass with this beer was mediocre, but the second was much better. The yeast used with this brew is what makes it special. It has a unique and interesting flavor. It is certainly worth trying. It has a bit of a wild yeast character to it while still being clean and refreshing.

A - golden clear, easily seen through. 1 inch head that drops down to a lacing.

S - Fruity, citrusy,grapefruit, malty.Floral note from the hops, rose pedals. Breadiness and carmel from the malt.

T - Grapefruit ,citrus, up front followed by malt, bready caramel classic Lagunitas style.

M - light to medium body. Medium carbonation. clean feel.

O - One of the best examples if not THE best of a Wheat ale. amazingly smooth easy to drink. Never gets old.
