A: Clear golden straw color with large soapy head that hangs around, good lacing

S: Smell is pretty strong, floral hops dominate, little bit of pine in there

T: The hops are really aggressive on the front end, floral and pine, wheat malts at the end to balance, really nice taste to it

M: Medium, good carbonation

O: This is a really good beer. It is strong in all the measurables. Really enjoy it and I will not hesitate to try this again especially if I can find it on tap somewhere.

Someone must have dropped a spliff in my bottle at Lagunitas. The aroma and also the taste have an astonishing weed component to it. Loving the way this beer is hoppy, smooth and not overly bitter.

Was pleasantly surprised with this beer. Went down very smooth and tasted stronger than the normal pale wheat ale beer.

Love this beer, wish they would date the bottles. I don't care if its not really an IPA, its an IPA to me.

Appearance was rich gold in color, with a slight murkiness, and thin white head...rather appealing. Aroma was faint, with a whiff of citrus. Taste was grapefruit and pineapple, with pine and herb and not enjoyable for me. Carbonation was rather light. Overall, this beer tries too hard to be an intense IPA--while unique, I found it very difficult to drink. I won't purchase again, and won't drink it again.
