12 oz bottle into a pint glass

Ap- pours predominantly clear goldish yellow with a bit of haze. has about an inch of frothy white head with pretty good retention

Ar- citrusy hops especially lemon, biscuity malts and light wheat

T- wow, crazy complexity going on here. starts off tasting hoppy like an APA with citrus/piney hoppy notes up front and then finishes off with a touch of lemon tang from the wheat I presume. Solid biscuit malt backbone balances this brew nicely

M- medium bodied, good carbo for the style, a bit sticky on the finish

O- I love this beer, well balanced, refreshing and easy to drink. The alcohol is hidden well and the pricing is spot on...another win for lagunitas

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a mildly hazy gold, with lots of visible carbonation and 1 1/2 finger's worth of white head.

S: Light biscuit and cracker malts, pine, grass and citrus hops.

T: Follows the nose, with just a bit of multi-grain bread graininess. It's fairly balanced but nicely hoppy (pine and citrus primarily). Citrus (lemon, grapefruit and rind bitterness) in the hang.

M: Light body, a fairly bubbly mouthfeel, and only a bit of alcohol presence - impressively hidden for this ABV in this style.

O: This was really solid for a style that can be underwhelming so often. Quite enjoyable.
