very bizarre brew here. pours a clear red tinted copper color with a one inch off white head that slowly dissipates. smells like fresh hops, grassy and earthen, english malt backing, some wheat malts as well, but does not smell like a wheat beer and its usually accompanying yeast. flavor is strangely hopped up front, not quite fruity, a bit dry, and mildly spiced. tough to place exactly, but possibly tasting some fresh cascade hops here. feel is good, fuller bodied than most. kind of a hybrid beer in taste and feel, not a wheat beer per se, but not an ipa either. well carbonated, it carries the unique flavors of the hops. overall a cool beer, good bargain, and interesting blend of ingredients. ill most likely have this again.

Not bad for a wheat & hops beer. 64.20 IBU, 7.5% etoh. Very drinkable! Almost like a desert beer. Has a sweet aftertaste. I first had it had RhodeSide Grill in Arlington, VA. The 2nd time I had it was as Jaleo (a José Andrés restaurant) in Wash DC just last week. Bought a 6 pack at Whole Foods on P street for $9.99. This is one of my top 6 beers for sure!

A: Amber, finger head that gradually recedes. Looks great.

S: Hoppy in the best way possible. Pine, grapefruit, slight orange. Smells delicious.

T: Citrusy, yet mildly fruity. Bitterness is well balanced. Malt on the back end, even some peach/mango. Some pine throughout. Alcohol is prevalent when it warms.

M:
I'd say medium. Alcohol taste creeps up on you as you drink. Still very pleasant though.

O:
Simply put, this beer is dank. From the complex smell and taste to the heavy mouthfeel, this beer is awesome. I've tried multiple Lagunitas brews, and I'd put this up there with the Lagunitas Sucks and the IPA. Very delicious and totally worth the price I paid for a sixer. Great ale.
