Lagunitas is a very recent arrival to TN and I was stoked to find out this was one of the beers we would be getting...

Extremely bright and juicy citrus hop aromas rolling off this brew... reminds me of a freshly sliced grapefruit with touches of orange thrown in... man, this smells great and very intriguing especially for a pale wheat... this has straight up IPA hoppiness although it seems somehow lighter? Hard to describe...

Bursting with bitter citrus notes, the smoothness of this beer on the finish is the only indication that this is a wheat... lots of bitterness up front and throughout with a finish that doesn't linger as long as you would expect... very delicious and refreshing... I like this a lot.... a lot...

This will be a staple on the lawnmower this year although at 7.5, too many and I'm falling off... awesome warm weather brew and one I'm glad I can get anytime

12oz bottle (code 13096417 stamped on neck) poured into a Duvel tulip on the back patio after pulling weeds and cutting grass for 5 hours. No way this beer's gonna suck.

Hazy golden orange beer with a nice fluffy white head.

Aroma is big tropical notes: oranges, pineapple, and peaches.

Taste follows the nose, with just a touch more bitterness. Nice crisp hop bite.

This one's incredibly drinkable. I could easily keep this one stocked in the fridge all year, or at least all summer.

A - Pale orange wit ha finger or two of white head leading to patchy lacing.

S - Grapefruit and citrus hops with a sweet touch of honey and a hint of bready wheat.

T - Sweet citrus and grapefruit hops, a touch grassy with a hint of pine as it warms. Slightly spicy with a touch of honey sweetness.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation feeling slightly slick at times. Lingering dryness in the finish.

D - Drinks closer to a big pale or an IPA. The wheat is not as noticeable as it is with other beers in this style.

Tap @ The Local. Didn't know what to expect, first "American Pale Wheat Ale," and, its a lot like an IPA. At least this one was. Poured clear copper with a short white head. Solid lacing. Fresh, citrus aroma, lots of hops. Peppery and spicy as well. No wheat. Light, clean mouthfeel with a dry finish. Very refreshing. Clean, bitter hops up front that rapidly shifts to the citrus. Lemon zest, tart oranges, grapefruit. Mellow finish without being soapy. Again, no wheat. Overall, a nice beer, drinks like a smooth, tart West-Coast IPA. Difference is all the hops with a lighter body.
