Malty, yet clean. Makes it extremely drinkable. This was my first Lagunitas and it is still my favorite.

Look- pours a straw yellow. A half a finger length head quickly dissipates into small patchy spots of lace in the center of the drink. The carbonation is visible.
Smell- fruity esters are dominant. Also, floral esters as well as a soapy and perfume like quality are evident. This brew has a nice aroma.
Taste- fruity; notably pear. Wheat malt. This brew is also quite herbal and spicy. A bitter and dry hops finish balances out the taste.
Feel- light and crisp. Carbonation stings the tongue. This one goes down smoothly and is quite refreshing.
Overall, a nice brew

Pours a light, clear gold with a thick frothy white head. Fragrant with hoppy goodness, smells of citrus, pine, very floral and non specific citrus. Tastes of citrus, subdued malts and semi sweet, pine/citrus notes (lemon/grapefruit), mild bitter bite at mid to end note and pleasant sweet with an almost caramel flavor and bready/biscuit (and clean finish). Very smooth mouthfeel, medium body with fair amount of carbonation to buoy the malts and accentuate the hops.
Overall, has the best features of a wheat beer and an IPA. Well balanced sweetness with hoppy bitterness. Great beer.

This is a fantastic beer. Really great flavor, wonderfully balanced, very drinkable and will kick your butt if you have too many.
