Poured into a tall clear glass. The beer has a glowing resplendent gold color, with a slight tint of orange. Has a large head, good retention. Moderate carbonation.

Smells very prominent of fruity and tropical scents, along with a piney composition. Other smells are pineapple, oranges, resin, light caramel, other citrus, and a very faint pepper. Overall very sweet Very pungent.

Tastes strong and sour hoppy taste upon the first sip. Bitterness is accompanied by a wheat and piney body, followed by cloves, some grapefruit, tangerine, oranges, pineapple, and a kick of lemon peel. Basically a bitter hoppy wheat beer with some good spices and tropical mix. Feels creamy smooth and medium on the palette.

This is pretty nice. I feel confused over whether this tastes more wheaty or more IPA.

I picked up a single bottle for $2 at my local Publix. It was good, but I prefer the regular Lagunitas IPA. This one was a little strong for my taste.

Great character, fruity smelling and tasting. Not all too bitter, but quite flavorful. 7.5% ABV was quite surprising, as it was very drinkable. Notes of lime, orange, and lemon.

It is okay but a little too bitter tasting for me. C- (70-74) score range

lightly veiled orange color. Average white foam.
In the smell citrus hop, tangerine, grapefruit, orange marmelade. Fruity notes, melon / apricot.
Fruity start in the taste, melon, and again, orange marmelade.
Summer, thirst quenching brew, despite its 7.5 ABV.
Citrus aftertaste, with a good bitterness.

Pours a clear, deep golden coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smells of biscuity malt and citrus fruit: grapefruit, tangerine, lime. Taste is a nice balance of biscuity malt and citrus hops, with notes of grapefruit, tangerine and lime. Finishes with a nice, medium dry bitterness. I'm not really getting any wheat/yeast character from this at all, seems more like a strong Pale Ale to me. A pretty nice one at that though, no discernible boozyness to this at all. I liked this a LOT more than their IPA, with a stronger hop presence and great malt balance.

Smooth, crisp, and fresh ale. At 7.5% it goes down like a session beer.
