Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap

Purchased: Single from Brawley's Beverage, Charlotte

A: Clear, amber colored beer with a tall white head that shows good retention and a very nice spiderweb of lacing.

S: Big citrus and floral hops are prominent, kind of like an IPA. Very clean, fresh and fruity in the nose.

T: Starts with a bright hop character, as in grapefruit and other tropical fruits. Also features a spicy quality. Although it is fairly bitter, the malts chip in for balance in a very good way.

M: High in carbonation, with a creamy, light body from the wheat malts. Lingering hop resins and citrus fruit make up the finish, with just a touch of sweetness.

O: I'm not a hop head, but can appreciate this hop-forward wheat beer. It's put together well and makes for a tasty brew. Recommended

Bottom Line Up Front: This is one of my favorites from Lagunitas. A very drinkable beer with wonderful hop flavors and aromas.

Decanted 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A pale golden beer that has high clarity. Pours a beautiful head and nice sticky lacing around the glass.

Smell: floral hops, bread, something sweet. It just smells really good!

Taste: Citrusy hops with a good medium body and a light finish.

Mouthfeel: Right amount of carbonation and smooth feel on the palate.

Overall: A great beer to drink. I typically get this as a treat every so often since it is one of my favorites and typically a few dollars more than Sierra Nevada. A real good beer and I really like A Little Sumpin' Wild as well if you can find it.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance - Not sure. I drank it straight from the bottle. That is never something I do, but it was the situation.

smell: Smell was wonderful citrus.

taste: Taste is terrific. Their website says the used all the hops that begin with the letter "C" and I believe them, what with the citrus bomb that this beer is!

mouthfeel: Shame on me for drinking it out of the bottle, it was way too carbonated that way.

overall: Lagunitas does it again with a style that I am really liking - American wheats.
