look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Big three-fingered fluffy white head. Clear, golden body with sporadic traces of carbonation trickling to the surface. Superb head and lace retention.

S: Big, juicy pine hops. This is an "I love beer" kind of beer. It's big, bitter, fruity, hoppy and all sorts of fun. Somewhat sugary and candy-like. Not really picking up a lot of wheat. It's there, but I'm distracted by these wonderful hops. I wish I smelled like this beer.

T: Oh so wonderful. Oh yes. Yes, yes, yes. Much more wheat here, but citrusy hops are still the dominant force. Perhaps not quite as bitter as the nose suggests, but palate-cleansing enough. Juicy orange and grapefruit intermingle with the wheat in nuanced ways. Finish has traces of wheat and pleasant bitterness.

M: My central complaint is that it goes down way too easy. I'm more than halfway through the bottle already as I write this line.

O: One of my favorites, and certainly my favorite wheat beer (in that it tastes like an IPA).

Poured a crystal clear golden color with a foamy 2 finger head. Left a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Big hop aroma. Pine and grapefruit with a bit of a sweet aroma.

Taste follows the nose with pine and pink grapefruit up front balanced well by a sturdy malt backbone. Finishes with a nice lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium and a little slick, goes down smooth. A little low on the carbonation, but it works well.

Overall this is another great beer from Lagunitas.
