Poured into a nonic.

Clear golden body with an inch of frothy white foam on top from a hard pour. Head dies down to a somewhat bubbly cap of foam on top. Nice lacing left behind.

Smells of honey and bread malts. Some fruity notes and citrusy hops.

Cereal, wheat bread and honey malts. Some fruity yeast notes that quickly give way to piney and citrusy hops that add a nice balance at the back end. Lasting bitter finish.

Clean, medium bodied, creamy and assertive carbonation.

An easy drinker indeed. Pretty IPA like for an American pale wheat ale, but I still dig it.

Pours pale gold with white head that leaves sugary lacing dripping down the side. The usual Lagunitas aroma permeates from the drink: strong tropical fruit, citrus, kiwi, sugar, and hops. Starts clean: tropical fruit then wet hops, alcoholic booze swing through and slick the palate with oily residue, citrus. Mouthfeel is slick, semi-oily, but fatigued carbonation make for a nonaggressive drink. A nice American Pale Wheat Ale but a bit offensive, the usual Lagunitas style. Well worth picking up, a great West Coast ale. Elegant in flavor and dangerous in ABV. Go get some.

4.13/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a nice orange color with a small white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing.

S: A lot of citrus hops hit the nose. There is a little amount of citrus but the pine is the most prevalent.

T: The citrus hops hits the palate first and foremost. In the middle, there is a slight amount of caramel/bready malt but finishes strong with more citrus hops.

M: Leaves a bitter citrus hop residue on the palate.

D: As someone who enjoys citrus hops, this one was a great beer. I would and could certainly have multiple in a sitting despite the 7% ABV.
