An excellent beer from Lagunitas, perhaps my favorite large brewery. Nice hop character thats balanced by roasted hops.

L: Great Amber color.

S: Hoppy smell with malty undertones

T: Light and sweet malt flavor to start with a piney hoppy finish

F: Light mouth feel for a relatively heavy beer. Nice light texture that invites a second or third glass..

O: Easy to drink. Easily a high-end daily drinker for a "beer snob". Wheat malt makes this a lighter version version of their flagship offering but Lagunitas never disappoints me.

Served in a snifter.

A crystal-clear golden-orange body with a foamy white head that leaves more than a modest trace of lacing. Really a pretty beer.

Citrusy hops rule the nose with the slightest whiff of wheat malt that draws out some complexities as the beer warms.

Tastes of grapefruit and orange. The malt doesn't really seem to have a chance of being noticed, but, similar to the aroma it begins to quietly present itself as the beer warms up.

Mouthfeel seems perfect throughout - enough body to deliver the mass amounts of hops without becoming too thick or syrupy.

It's been a few years since I last had this beers - it was one of the first craft brews I ever had, so I was relatively unaware of what I was trying - and I feel so pleasantly surprised at how fine it is. This is a great beer.

A: Extremely clear, golden, with one to one and a half fingers of white head. Very clear with no particulates in the beer. The head sticks around a bit and laces pretty well.

S: The sweet malty smell is forward, but you can tell there's some spicy/herbal hops in there.

T: No big surprises here; it starts with sweet malts, but finishes with some nice, citrusy hops. It does taste a little bit boozy, but it is 7.5% abv.

M: A bit lighter, but maybe that's because it tastes quite a bit like an IPA. Carbonation is great and leaves just enough oily taste on the tongue.

O: Love me some Lagunitas, and this one doesn't disappoint. They've basically brewed an IPA, just with a wheat malt. I'm excited to try this one in the summer.
