Poured into tulip glass- a good three-finger fluffy white head. Clear golden color. Left some good lacing all the way down.

Smell is great with a fruity, citrusy aroma and a touch of bready notes, with a bit of flowery tinges as well.

The taste is just like the smell, with a lot of fruity flavors up front and a nice pine bit to finish.

Mouthfeel is just perfect, almost light for a DIPA, and not harsh, just the right amount of carbonation to let you know you've had something special

Overall, this is another home run from Lagunitas, pretty close to being on a par with Sucks.

Bottled 7/18/14

Clear light gold with frothy 2 finger head.

Big grapefruit smell, a lot of citrus. All hops here. very much like Sucks.

Taste again is big citrus bite and tang of grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Moderate amount of bitterness. Just right. A little caramel sweetness keeps it from being too bitter. its been a little while since I had Sucks but this seems almost identical.

Moderate carbonation and light to moderate body. not too slick and finishes quite clean for a DIPA.

Really like this beer and fills in he gap of the year when here is no Sucks to be found. Lagunitas does it again.

Golden light color. Very nice frothy white head. Grapefruit and orange notes in the aroma. Taste is citrus with a hint of pine. nice balance with the malt. Definitely a little bigger than the regular version with a hint of alcohol at the finish. Very nice!

Update: love this beer. The wheat adds a effervescence that other regular IPAs lack.
