Bottle poured into nonic,

A- golden clear with 2 finger head that dissipates a little quick yet leaves lovely long lasting lacing

S- inviting wheat malt aroma, piques my beer apetite

T- initially brown sugar caramel sweetness, then bold toasted hops flavors come through with citrus grapefruit piny flavors, balanced alchol that is not intrusive, and finishes with sugary caramel after taste

M- medium thickness, has right amount of substance

O- mark of good beer is if it makes you want another, thats what i kept thinking as savored this brew. Deliciousness.

A: Pours a wonderful translucent gold with one full finger of pure white head. The foam takes a bit to settle, and leaves a ton of lacing on the glass as it drinks.

S: The nose is pungent citrus, a touch of pine, and only slight malt. This beer smells juicy and inviting. I am excite.

T: The first hit is light and sweet, and then... boom! Huge juicy citrus. It's oranges and lemon peel. I get a bit of pine in the back end, but the dominate flavors are citrus. The beer finishes with the perfect mix of bitter and sweet.

M: Light bodied beer. It's watery and sweet to start, juicy in the middle, and well balanced in the finish. The flavors hit the palate and move off quickly. Nothing lingers for longer than it needs to. The carbonation is perfect and the bitters tighten this beer up in the finish.

O: Wonderful beer. It's incredible easy to drink, the citrus flavors really shine, and it's ridiculously refreshing. I think I have found my new summer go-to APA/IPA/easy drinking brew.

A: Clear, light gold in color, with a quickly-dissipating white head. Lacing was minimal.

S: I can't smell much past the powerful aroma of the hops. After the potent fruity, citrus rind smell, there's just a hint of wheat bread.

T: Sweet, one-dimensional malt, more sweetness, then grapefruit juice, then grapefruit rind, then pine needles.

M: Crisp & well-carbonated. Fairly chewy. a tad dry in the finish.

O: OK, I really don't get the positive reviews here. This was a boring beer with nothing to offer but a high IBU count. Not quite a drain pour, but not up to the standards I'd have expected from Lagunitas.
