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

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

Ap- pours predominantly clear goldish yellow with a bit of haze. has about an inch of frothy white head with pretty good retention

Ar- citrusy hops especially lemon, biscuity malts and light wheat

T- wow, crazy complexity going on here. starts off tasting hoppy like an APA with citrus/piney hoppy notes up front and then finishes off with a touch of lemon tang from the wheat I presume. Solid biscuit malt backbone balances this brew nicely

M- medium bodied, good carbo for the style, a bit sticky on the finish

O- I love this beer, well balanced, refreshing and easy to drink. The alcohol is hidden well and the pricing is spot on...another win for lagunitas

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a mildly hazy gold, with lots of visible carbonation and 1 1/2 finger's worth of white head.

S: Light biscuit and cracker malts, pine, grass and citrus hops.

T: Follows the nose, with just a bit of multi-grain bread graininess. It's fairly balanced but nicely hoppy (pine and citrus primarily). Citrus (lemon, grapefruit and rind bitterness) in the hang.

M: Light body, a fairly bubbly mouthfeel, and only a bit of alcohol presence - impressively hidden for this ABV in this style.

O: This was really solid for a style that can be underwhelming so often. Quite enjoyable.
