3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs. Poured a glowing auburn color with thin layer of fluffy foam head. Aroma is perfect olfaction of half and half combination of toasty malts and piney west coast hops. The flavor gives a dirty earth and grainy toasted malt. The background also allows for a sweet taste of honey and a bitter hop bite. This at least meets the grade since Lagunita’s has been making mediocre beers lately.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle(s). Pours a cloudy golden copper with foamy off-white head that lasts a while. Nice mango grapefruit aroma. Flavor is citrus hops but also a bit sweet. Medium bodied, slightly sticky, very refreshing. Average lingering piney bitterness. This was the perfect beer for the 95 degree heat that swept through here today; thanks again, Lagunitas.

Bottle thanks to NYbeer. Light and clear yellow pour, medium carbonation and a soapy hop aroma. Flavor is light spicy hops, a little grapefruit and finished with a little lemongrass/wheat. Very enjoyable, will be picking up some of this when I see it locally.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very slightly hazy golden pour with a thick creamy ivory head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine with faint malty notes buried underneath. Malty raisin flavor mixed with lemony citrus hop flavors followed by a pleasing bitter finish. Medium bodied. Could be a bit more carbonated for my tastes. Nice beer from one of my favorite brewers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very light in color with white head. Powerful hop aroma with some nice citrus tones. This beer is technically a wheat but is extremely hoppy and has an ABV of 7.3%. Only a little nit of bitterness in this beer. Most of the hops add extra flavor giving this beer a nice grapefruit taste that finishes nice and sweet. Great refreshing beer that will knock your socks off if you give it the chance, and you will want to give it the chance.
