P: 12oz bottle into a perfect pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy bright gold with an amber hue and a two finger bubbly white head. Lacing is impressive.

S: Lemon citrus hops and some pepper with a little floral aroma.

T: You get the wheat base up front but it's quickly diminished by the hop bitterness. Finishes sweet which is interesting, the hop bitterness is really in the middle of every sip.

M: Smooth for days, light body and moderate carbonation make this an easy beer to drink, this could prove to be dangerous at 7.5% ABV.

O: This is my first beer from Lagunitas, I've heard a lot about them but they've just recently become easy to find in Delaware. Part of me was hoping for this to taste like more of a wheat beer than an IPA but I'm not sure that I really care either way. It's got some really nice malt and hop aroma and flavors and goes down smooth. What else could you ask for? Recommended.
