A fun somewhat fruity beer that is easy to drink, certainly some caramel specialty mixing with several other grains on a two solid row base to create a flavorful ale that is sneaky good. This Ale is great for those new to craft beers but will not satisfy the strong robust pallets.

A- Golden orange, fair amount of white head some lacing as well

S- Piney hops, citrus hops, very floral

T-The grains soften out the hops a lot, piney hops, citrus, sweet malt, nice level of bitterness

M- Medium bodied, well carbonated, medium bitterness

O- Very good beer, great nose, nice and easy to drink, right amount of bitterness, definitely worth trying

12 oz. Bottled a little over a month ago, says the Julian code.

A: Looks similar to their IPA, Sucks, and Hop Stoopid. Clear bright copper body, nice head and sticky lacing.

S: Hops, lots of sugar, almost like cake frosting. More wheat and malt as it warms up.

T: Exactly how I'd expect a hoppy wheat beer to taste. Nice balance of bitterness and breadiness (if that's even a word). Classic Lagunitas hop bite loaded with notes of pineapple.

M: Carbonation is at an adequate level. For a higher ABV beer, you wouldn't notice it much.

O: One of their best year-round beers, for sure.

This beer can best be described as sort of a wheat IPA. It pours a beautiful golden orange with minimal lacing. The aroma is very nice with flowery hops notes, citrus and grapefruit. The mouth feel is a little thin, But, after all, it's a wheat beer. The taste is like a light wheat IPA. This is one of my favorite summer beers. It is much more interesting than other wheat beers and will please hop heads- well hopped but not too bitter.

A: Golden orange in color, leaves a very nice white head so don't poor too aggressively, leaves some lacing as well

S: Some piney hops, more citrus hop smell though, and some orange, can't tell if it's yeast or zest though, and a hint of some sweet malt

T: Pine hops hit first, then you get the citrus hops as the bitterness comes, and it leaves with orange yeast and a hint of sweet malt flavor in the after taste, very nice bitterness level in this beer, overall good balancing of flavors and bitterness

M: Nice and light, very drinkable, a hint oily, leaves your mouth a tiny bit dry but it's nice, if I didn't look at the ABV I would have thought this was a session beer

O: Great beer, good smell, taste, bitterness, if you haven't tried this yet definitely pick it up next time you see it, definitely worth the buy
