On tap at Murphy's
Comes to the table a slightly cloudy light golden color with a smallish off white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of citrus grapefruit and lemon with bits of bread and spice. The flavor follows quite well a citrus hoppy ale with a bit of bready malt and spicy wheat. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a slick almost bubbly mouthfeel. Pretty damn good for a hoppy wheat beer, thanks Todd for suggesting it, I wouldn't have ordered it on my own.

Poured from bottle into sweetwater snifter

Pours a Nice yellowish/gold with a nice little head on it.

Smells of hops and sweet goodness

Tastes is a wheaty sweetness upfront, finishing with a nice hoppy bitterness on the end.

MF-Medium/light body. Nice and smooth feeling.

O-This is pretty damn good. Not a huge wheat fan, but these guys did it right. highly recommend.

12 oz bottle into pint glass

Relatively clear straw/golden/yellowy color with small but airy white head that lingers and leaves small amount of lacing on glass

Lots of hops and citrusy tropical fruits. I get mostly grapefruit and tangerine mixed in with a some piney hoppy notes

Very well balanced, floral, hoppy. Tastes more like an IPA than a wheat beer, due to such strong hop characteristics and the higher ABV.

Crisp clean finish. Very carbonated almost to point that reminds me of a Belgian IPA. Nice alcohol smoothness to balance out all of the hops.

Another very solid beer from Lagunitas. Drank more like an IPA or APA than a pale wheat, not very much wheat characteristic however still an excellent beer that packs a puch in ABV yet I could still throw back five or six of
