4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
INFORMATION: 12oz bottle with no freshness date. I know that Lagunitas usually puts a code on the bottle from which you can determine what day of the year that it was brewed, but there is no such code here. This bottle is from this Springís batch, so itís pretty fresh. 64 IBUs....7.5% ABV.
APPEARANCE: Pours a pale yellow-orange color with a good two fingers worth of off-white colored head floating on top. Plenty of carbonation bubbles visible within the glass. Pretty good clarity for a wheat beer. Impressive lacing sticking to the inside of the glass with each sip.
NOSE: Orange, lemon, mango, juicy fruit gum, musk melon! This beer is fruiTy with a capital T! Behind the wall of citrus lies subtle hints of this being a wheat beer.
TASTE: Good light wheat flavor up front, but itís short lived. Fruity flavors come rushing in just as the aroma suggest. Thereís a touch of hop bitterness towards the middle, but this beer is big on the citrus, and not so much on the bitterness. The flavor of the wheat shows itself again towards the back end. Soft fruity finish begs for you to take another sip.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied with a soft carbonation.
OVERALL: The best of the best where wheat beers are concerned.
Moreyís Bottom Line: The first time that I had this, I was floored. Iíve had it several times since, and nothingís changed. If you see this, by all means....grab a six pack!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden yellow pour off white head. Sweet fruity hop aroma. I get a touch of strawberry and pine with a hint of caramel. Average palate. Flavor is fairly bitter with some tart grapefruit and a light sweetness a dry lingering bitterness post swallow. A good beer I canít believe I hadnít rated before. Easy drinking a bit one note but I enjoy it.

12oz bottle, smell is sweet fruit, appearance is golden yellow, taste is sweet pineapple and grapefruit with a bitter finish, good hoppy beer but Lagunitas makes better ones.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very floral-fruity in the nose, the beer starts intense floral. Peaches, pineapples, pine. For the 7.5% extremely highly drinkable and not really sweet. Thirst-quenching with lots of floral fresh hops. The aftertaste is long, intense. Not too bitter, not too sweet and nicely floral.
A great IPA, especially for this high ABV. --> 13/13/13/13

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden with a medium beige head, good clinging lacing. Aromas of pine resin, grapefruit, biscuit, grass and some floral notes. Medium light body, lively, lightly dry. Medium malty sweet into medium bitter, with a light bitter aftertaste. Hop it to me.
