*My first review so go easy on me.

A: Generous 1 finger head, plenty of carbonation. Beautiful and golden. The bottle art made me think it was some left-over summer ale at first. This is deceptive as this is a year-round brew.

S: Strong smell of floral and grapefruit.

T: I love how that citrus hits you and then doesn't sit around to linger. You have to catch it and when you do it's wonderful

M: Really nice on the mouth. I let this one sit on the tongue for a bit.

O: Wow, I will definitely buy this again. I usually don't sit down and drink 3 beers at once now a days but I kept coming back for more of this. I was surprised how easy these go down given the abv rating.

very refreshing beer.. poured it on wheat glass with nice 3 finger white head that stays.. gold colored.. smell is piney, grassy, refreshing green mangoes and pineapple nose. the taste follows the nose citrusy sweet, fresh hops, pineapple and green mangoes. finish with slight bitterness that leaves bready like texture in the mouth
Overall- outstanding beer!

A - big bubble foamy white head with good retention and a deep golden color body.

S - citrus and hops are strong at first and over time mellows to a floral note.

T - well balanced flavor with a floral sweetness.

M - moderate body, a bit smoother than a typical pale ale (probably the wheat folks).

O - a good beer by Lagunitas. The hops really linger on my tongue which is interesting considering this isn't an IPA and it reminds me a lot of them. Personally not a big hop head which may be why the bitterness bugs me for just being a pale (and at that with wheat!). I don't find it to be particularly unique but very good nonetheless. Watch out as a 6er of these will get ye!

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft pint

A- Clear golden, just the slightest haze in the glass. Great white head. Speckles of lacing are left behind. Really beautiful looking beer.

S- Juicy citrus, sweet floral notes, a little rosy, just a bit of bread/toasted grain character.

T- Juicy (again) sweetness of citrus and stone fruits. Slight grain flavor. Great taste!

M- Medium light, with fairly mild carbonation. Bittersweet finish is really nice.

O- Juicy beer (as mentioned above) Really great and just the perfect amount of bitterness to level things out. Delicious.
