Poured out from the bottle a blonde yellow with a sustaining 3/4" head. Laces well for a pale wheat ale.

Remarkably spry Lagunitas hops in the nose. Grapefruit rind, green pineapple, maybe tart apricot, light pine, a dose of pale wheat malts, and just a whiff of nut flesh. Great nose for the style. Hoppy and bright.

Zippy citrus and tropical fruit hoppiness with pine and floral notes. Wheat malts are in the background, but they just allow the West Coast hop profile to blaze the trail. Some nutty yeast way back there behind IPA-level humulus and bitterness. Wants to clean up in the finish, but there's always a lot of tang in that nearly minty Lagunitas hop character. Light spiciness surfaces late and becomes a slight alcohol warmth; reminding me that this wheat ale is 7.5%.

Drinks charmingly. Bitternesd isn't actually all that massive. So smooth, but with that crisp bite of carbonation that smacks the tongue around. Faster than fast in drinkability.

An outstanding example of the style, if not too far out there. Like a wheat IPA. Lagunitas doing what Lagunitas does best.
