Very hoppy. Iím actually having a hard time identifying many specific flavors. Sweet, maybe orange/lemon rind. Itís a good clean ale, but I find it one-dimensional.

Bottle; Pour is clear gold with an average white head with average retention. Nice floral, grapefruit, caramel nose. I do enjoy, for a change, a tasty ipa that doesnít have that heavy bitterness, and I think this brew really accomplishes those concepts. This brew seems more malt forward on the flavor profile; caramel, toast, while the grapefruit and florals round out the hop bitterness. Nice little brew, for sure.

acearl (409) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2011
Clear golden pour with white creamy head, not much lacing, lemon citrus hops, thin texture overall kind of light, alcohol % listed high but doesnít seem that much not too complex, nice balance, nothing overwhelming esp bitterness, clean good summer beer

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - APR 28, 2011
Bottle poured into my IPA glass. Iím really surprised that I have not rated this prior to now as I know Iíve purchased it a few times. I wish Lagunitas put bottled on dates as this one does not seem as wonderful as others I remember. Surely if I have it again I can bump up my rating if necessary. The aroma is soft, mild really. Appearance is clear and tangerine in color, the head faded within minutes. The taste is far more on the malt side than Stone IPA (known fresh) I just had. So it has the sort of flavor and vibe of something that has been sitting on a hot BevMo shelf for awhile. I will rebuy this from a better store soon and hopefully rerate with a better impression as I generally really enjoy the offerings from Lagunitas.

oOJUXEOo (303) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2011
Bottle. This beer is fantastic. A very smooth, non-biting IPA that has citrus/floral aroma, and very well hidden alcohol. A great almost sessionable beer, if not for the ABV. Wish I could get it year round.

Botttle. Pours orange, whitish head. Some hops bitter, well hidden alcohol, nice beer.

Pours a light amber and has taste notes of lemon. It also has quite a bitter taste that tends to linger.

VengefulOdin (193) - , Missouri, USA - APR 22, 2011
Pours a clear light orange, with a moderate head made up of small interlocking bubbles. Aroma is hoppy, with some big citrus notes (Iím picking up oranges) coming to the forefront. The wheat character is there, but itís subdued. If I was tasting this blind I probably would call it an IPA or Pale Ale based on the aroma. Taste is pretty stunning. I had several of these the other day and they went down smooth and easy. This beer is bursting at the seams with flavor, with huge fruity IPA notes hitting the palate first, chased by wonderful malt thatís highlighted by the wheat. Not all that bitter, which is nice in a beer like this. The second sip showcases more of the hop profile, with big pine and grass notes this time. Malt flavor errs on the sweet side rather than the dry, which means that this one goes down quick and easy - and at 7.3% ABV thatís something you may want to monitor. Carbonation is relatively high, but given the wheat character and malt sweetness, thatís actually welcome. Tastes like an IPA but itís easy to drink like a Wheat Beer. Fantastic and unique.

TheHopster (883) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2011
(bottle) This is so easy to drink and dangerous to session. A nice understated aroma with creamy, full-bodied IPA appearance. Very smooth and without bitterness. This is a future "pick of the week" but must wait for summer to emerge.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2011
Citrus hops, especially grapefruit on this golden orange pour. Bitter, hops in the flavor at first followed by some mild toast and some notes of grapefruit. Lingering bitter finish. I rather enjoyed this one.
