12 Oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- Hazy golden straw yellow. A one finger white head with nice tight bubbles.

S- Fresh hop bitterness. A lot of bright citrus notes, like lemon and pineapples. A little bit of wheat and a very sugary malt profile. A delightful smelling brewski.

T- A nice fresh hoppyness to it. A lot of fresh citrus flavors, lemon and grapefruit,ect. A solid wheat/ rye flavor that adds a refreshing twist to an IPA. Some astringency. Finish clean with a somewhat metallic flavor.

M- Drinks really easily, I could blast through a six pack easily. Good mouthfeel, bitter and clean finish.

O- Nice offering from lagunitas. I think I prefer this over their Maximus. A winner.

D: Great drinker that goes down easy. A beer with a unique character that lets it stand tall in a sea of IPAs.

Pour is a hazy orange-gold color with nice some lighter orange tints along the edges; a full inch of off-white foam. Light lacing as it recedes.

Aromas begin with an aromatic blend of citrusy lemon and grapefruit, some floral orange blossoms and a small hint of pine.

The tastes follow the nose with a solid amount of orange citrus and slightly bitter pine hop flavors, a touch of sweetness on the finish from the crisp, crackery pils and wheat maltiness.

The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium in terms of body with a nice crisp, refreshing finish.

Overall I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would given how bland and boring most exampled of the style typically are, but I should have known better coming from Lagunitas. This offering is a much better take on the Pale Wheat Ale than most other offerings of this style, even thought I would consider this more a Wheat IPA given the ABV instead of a wheat pale ale. The hoppiness really makes this a great refreshing brew and one I will gladly revisit in a bottle or on draft during the warmer months of the year.
