3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted 7/22/10. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a deep golden hue. Clinging bone white layer of head. Aromas of grapefruit and tropical fruit. Mild citrus and a slight strawberry nuance. Rather full bodied with a very dry palate. Bright, yet astringent effervescence. Definitely a huge hop bitterness with an accompanying rye bread and cereal grain flavor. Definitely hop dominant and everything in it screams BITTER! Ya take a style and heavy hand the hops! Sounds good to me! Very nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked up a single from the Sprayberry Bottle Shop. Poured clear, pale and golden. Pilsner like. The bone white head faded into a collar around the glass quickly. Very lacy. Aroma is of tasty citrus hops, pine, and resinous dank. Pretty awesome so far. Well rounded piney hop flavors throughout. Sticky mouthfeel, good carbonation allows this one to finish with a good bite. A smooth bitterness finishes this one off, nothing fancy, just a solid balance. I think itís safe to say that these dudes donít put out a bad IPA.

Bottle served in a tulip. Pours crystal clear light orange in color with a smallish off-white head. Good lacing. Bright orangey citrus aromatics, a touch of sweetness, and pine. Very sweet flavor. Medium-light body, prickly carbonation, creamy-oily texture, followed with by a dry, bitter-sweet finish. Excellent summertime IPA.

Snappy, citrusy and sweet aroma- I could sniff this all day. Beautiful small white head with a yellow pilsner color. Grapefruit and hops dominate this wheaty, hoppy beer that is actually quite crisp and drinkable. Not my favorite Lagunitas beer, but I would pick this as my summer beer for a hot day.

Bottle. Pour is a honey color with a quick soapy head with minimal lacing. Aroma is big citrus juicy fruit followed by faint hops. Taste is watery and grapefruity hops. Palate has a slik yet sticky feel and finishes dry. This is a well balanced IPA with great characteristics.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this on-tap tonight at Mad Mex in the North Hills.
A- Body is a slightly translucent light amber/orange color. Served with less than 1 finger foamy white head. Head fades to a thick collar and has pretty god retention from there with a little bit of lacing left all the way down the glass. Body is uniformly translucent.
S- A light accent of piny and citrusy hops come to the nose first followed by a slight wheat and yeast presence.
T- Taste is very similar to the nose. Citrus and piny hops come through first with a big presence of wheat and yeast in the background. Refreshing piny hop flavor comes through most for the finish with a hint of alcohol and more wheat to balance it out. The finish is also fairly clean with nothing lingering except a very slight hint of sweet bready yeast.
P- Medium tingly carbonation and medium weight body.
O- This is a very good Pale Wheat Ale that is similar to hop sun, uber sun, and gumballhead. What I like a lot about this one is that its an imperial hoppy wheat beer that isnít as intense as uber sun. Iím glad Iíve discovered this one and will mix it with my summer beer line-up. Definitely worth it and my favorite beer by this brewing company so far.

22oz bottle. Pours a deep red color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts with a heavy dose of hops. Flavor is relatively balanced, with that familiar Lagunitas flavor malt and hop flavor. Not quite remarkable, but nothing bad.

Pours deep amber with white head, aroma is some piny hops with a bit of caramel backbone. Taste up front is piny and citrusy, with some fruit that makes it a bit too sweet, finishing with some caramel and bread malt that ends bitter. Good IPA, interesting addition of the wheat that worked flavorwise, but made it a bit too sweet.
