I love this beer. The price in my area makes it the most affordable bang for the buck around. It is a gorgeous light-golden ale with a good amount of hops. I've been drinking this for a while, and it makes me smile every time. The taste is crisp, and it has a medium mouthfeel. The aftertaste is extremely pleasant. Highly recommended.

This was silky smooth on feel, golden and clear with juiced flavors that were not overly juiced. Pale ale with nice balance. Breaking it down, this is good all-around.

Wow. What a brew. This beer is sumpin’ else!

Light gold in color.

As far as the scent.... so much in this brew! Citrus, peach, mango, wheat, pine, lots of pineapple. Divine!

This brew can’t help but bring a smile to your face.

A good wheat pale. On the IPA side more with the present hoppiness. Really nice wheat bitterness, with almost a sweetness to it that’s really nice. Crisp and refreshing beer, great Lagunitas pale.

For not being an IPA, as an IPA enthusiast, this is near the top of my list! Wonderful nose...velvety smooth finish...great balance of sweet fruitiness and piney IBU's at the end. Love it!

On tap, pours a clear light gold. Dense head leaves thick lacing. Smell and taste are pretty classic West Coast IPA—citrus and pine. Nice bitterness. Really good beer.

Nice clear, dark golden color with a healthy one-finger head that lingers and has nice lacing. Gentle, hoppy notes on the nose with slight floral hints and maybe a little bit of melon. Taste is very well balanced between the hops and the malt. Nothing really jumps out at me on the front palate, but it has a nice, smooth, malty finish.
