Draft into std pint glass.crystal clear pale gold color. Nice head with medium retention and nice sticky lacing. Beautiful citrus aroma. Delicious with nice malty balance for the forward hops. Minimal lingering bitterness. Really nice. I have had this in bottles many times and not enjoyed it as much as this (apparently fresh) draft.

Fanstastic. Forgot how it poured because I dived in so quick. Very smooth, bitter taste without the tingly tongue sensation. Hoppy but not overly so. Hint of pine. A nice bold consistency without being "thick". Lagunitas never ceases to please me and even though this is on the milder side of most of their brews its an A+.

Poured a bit hazy dark gold with 3 finger white head. Nice lacing. Nose was a bit piney w/ citrus. A little wheat but this is not a hefe. Feel is thicker and taste is very sweet with an IPA hop finish.
