3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours yellow-gold with a light head and light lacing. Aroma is strong PNW hops and very little else. Flavor is very fresh, oily hops over very pale malts. The good news is: itís not overly sweet or cloying. The bad news is: itís yet another in a sea of IPAs. Good, solid, but lost in a crowd.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Apricot with a thing off-white head that leaves ring lacing. Aroma of heavy resinous hops, citrus, cinnamon, fruit, spice, mild oak and Lagunitas alcohol. Taste is nice and hoppy with citrus, resinous/piney hops, orange and crystal malt. Finishes up mildly bitter with a long lasting effect. Pretty tasty, I went it with ultra-low expectations based on one of the worst named beers to ever hit a store shelf.

Bottlle. Thanks to Savvy1982 for the trade. Pours like a pale ale. Not much head. Nose of grapefruit hops, some orange and wheat. Fruity, wheaty taste. Some hops at first. Long bitter finish. Fairly sweet, maybe too sweet. Well bodied and properly carbonated.

Aroma is bright and full of citrus. Taste follows the nose. Orange, grapefruit, lemon, hops and floral notes. Really like this beer, taste is fresh and clean. Great IPA.

Not really for me, but then again, Iím not a wheat beer fan. I missed that this was sort of a wheat / IPA hybrid, or I probably wouldnít have bought it. However, it is a high quality version of whatís itís trying to do. Great hops aroma, pours light golden, small head. Taste is very carbonated, Wheat beer palate and taste with lots of hops citrus mixed in and a nice bitter aftertaste that hangs around for a good while. If you like wheats and IPAs, youíll love this one.

Pour is a copper with a average white head. Aroma is all things cirtus hops. Flavor is some mango-melon hops with a nice piney aftertaste. Another hoppy-ass, tasty beer from Lagunitas.

On tap at The Brass Ring in Madison, pours a clear golden color with a white head that laces through out the entire glass, the aroma has a nice fruity and hoppy touch, the flavor has nice hoppy notes but has a somewhat sour finish, overall I really enjoyed this brew!

Bottle. Solid gold in appearance with a good inch of pillowy white head. Lots of sharp citrus hops aromas along with some pine and cannabis. The taste starts with grapefruit and oily, resiny hops followed by a small dose of toasted malt and pine. It finishes with intense hoppy bitterness and a little bit of alcohol. The overall flavor is aggressively hoppy with lots of juicy citrus to balance things out. Iím not a huge fan of Summer Wheats or Lagers so this is an ideal Summer seasonal for me.
