An above average IPA. Very bitter with strong citrus hop notes. I'm sure that's due to the ABV count. It's not a Little Sumpin; it's a lot as this beer packs a punch. I would rate higher but I am just not an IPA guy,

Pours a golden amber color with moderate head which shrinks down slowly and a small amount remains.

Smells off wheat and piney, floral hops.

Tastes very much like an IPA with piney and floral hops, with a very noticeable amount of wheat. Very different than most wheat ales, as it's really a wheat IPA, and Lagunitas pulled this off very well.

Moderate body and moderately carbonated. Goes down smoothly, and among the smoothest I've had from Lagunitas.

Overall, this is a great beer and probably my favorite from Lagunitas as well, who I am quite the fan of. I tried this for the first time on thanksgiving and drank it with my brother in law and we both absolutely loved this brew and have since bought it again.
