4.21/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

At my daughters in Red Bank, NJ.
Pours very clear pale amber with an all white head that has decent but not superior head retention.
Has a wheaty and clove aroma, along with strong aromatic hoppy scents.
Taste: Wheat and cloves take a back seat in the taste area. Hops of orange, pine, pineapple and grapefruit along with some roasty malts, for blance, take over.
Mouthfeel is quite pungent and a bit bready, as well as bitter and puckering. Good stuff here!
Don't find this a wheat. I don't care for wheats and this is a beer I like. Citrus hops dominate.
Crisp, clean- for me, came across as more of an IPA than a wheat.
I enjoyed this beer.

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

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

Appperance- Pours very light apricot, witha very thick three to four finger light khaki head. Lacing is all around this thing.4.25

Aroma- strong grapefruit aroma, nice earthy pine. This thing is loaded with all kinds of citrus notes, orange, apricot, pineapple. this smells more like an IPA. 4.25

Taste- Much like the aroma the taste is just packed full of citrus notes. Not much grapefruit, but tons of tropical fruits, mango and pinapple are just overflowing in this taste. There's also a slight orange cream hidding in there to. Dont get me wrong, these are not IPA level citrus notes, but they come very close. Very even taste throughout. 4.75

Feel- Light to medium body, Very easy to drink, coats your palate evenly, higher ABV then would think.4.5

Overall- I was not expecting to like this beer this much. Lagunitas makes a bunch of differnt beers that taste very similar to one and other, but i freaking love that taste. i could totally drink way more of these then i should. 4.5

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

A: Clear Light copper with large white head. Good retention and good lacing.

S: Decent dose of sweet malt and spicy hop upfront. Peach, pine needles, and oranges.

T: Pine and a grainy malt/bready sweetness. A very brief neutral grain note in the middle. Getting some peach and citrus. Orange and a little pine in the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Good amount of dryness.

O: Good, well-rounded beer. Great price too. This beer will make its way into my rotation of 6 pk. purchases.
