Look - Pours golden in color, slight haze, two fingers of white head, a few spots of lacing.
Aroma - Pine sap, honey, a bit of weed but it isn't 420 blaze it levels of dank.
Taste - Pink grapefruit, sugar, a resinous pine note. Malt is light and crackery. Sweeter towards the finish with an oily pine sap flavor that I've grown to enjoy from Lagunitas' beers.
Feel - Medium bodied, fine bubbles, creamy but finishes refreshing and dry. Alcohol well hidden. Incredibly drinkable, which is typical from this brewery.

Overall - I'm really more of a malt guy. I tend to gravitate more towards barleywines, brown ales and Belgians, but I can enjoy a beer like this. Good hop flavor but has some malt to back it up.

Pours a bright honey color. Lots of citrus and pine. This beer has a great mix of wheat along with the hints of honey and grapefruit. The taste and feel reminds me more of an IPA. Strongly carbonated beer with a light white head.

= A real winner here. I normally don't indulge in wheat ales but this brew is distinct and can pass for a great IPA. One of the best wheat ales I've ever had.
