Drank in late December out of a snifter.

A- nice amber color with thick head

S- very nice aromas similar to those of an IPA. Citrusy but with more malt aromas to keep it balanced.

T- mild mango and apricot flavors with a bitter/sweet after taste.

M- mild carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel.

O- every time I have this beer I appreciate it more. Although this is not an ipa it has a lot of the characteristics of a ipa. It has great drinkability and whenever I see in stock where I work I buy it.

Poured from bottle into beer mug.

A: Clear pale amber color with a thick frothy white head. Big globs of lacing all over.

S: Sweet citrus fruit and floral hops are very dominant, and smell delicious! Lots of grapefruit and mango. Also a good amount of caramel malt sweetness, almost like a graham cracker pie crust.

T: Pine and citrus fruit with a nice sweetness from the malt up front. Great balancing to showcase the hops without over doing it. It finishes on the bitter end with more grapefruit and little malt presence.

M: Light slick body, medium-high carbonation, and REALLY drinkable.

O: WOW. Lagunitas you've done it again. This is the best American wheat beer I've ever had. I would even rate this highly if it were an IPA, but it's a wheat beer! Really freaking good. A must try.
