Poured from bottle into a mason jar, yeah it's a Ball don't worry. Pours slightly hazy orange with a nice two finger white head. Smell is sweet hops, wheat, pine. taste is full of perfectly balanced wheat with sweet piney hops, plenty of citrus, some pineapple, some other sweet fruity notes. I love this beer, definitely a perfect west coast hybrid of an ipa and a wheat beer. As a lover of both styles this is a winner for me.

Finally enjoyed from the bottled into a pint glass

A: a lovely clear golden color with a three finger head that quickly breaks down leaving some light foam and a touch of lacing.

S: pine, grapefruit and some tropical smells.

T: wow. Pine, some citrus and a bitterness that is nice...it gives way to a sweet finish.

M: good carbonation a little sticky and a medium body.

O: well it took me a couple of trips to NY to get it, but I finally did, and it was worth it. This is a great beer. Nice and easy to drink, full of flavor and what I expected from this brewer. Lagunitas was the brewer that started changing my mind on the west coast style of beer and this has completed the conversion. I will be buying more on my next trip.
