Maybe I am picky, but for me some beers have flavors that wear out over time. The novelty of it wears off and taste taste that I so enjoyed on first sip becomes stale. This is definitely NOT that kind of beer. I never tire of this beer, this is an old standby. I tend to drink this straight from the bottle so I can't comment on how it pours, but the beer has medium viscosity and medium high carbonation. It has a great first bite! Hoppy, slightly floral and reminiscent of of a way an evergreen forest smells. Very slight sweetness. Lasting hopiness that sticks to the back of the throat but not in a displeasing way. It is more IPA than wheat but still has some qualities of a wheat ale. It has that snapiness of wheat ales but the wonderful bite of an IPA. One would not think that it is 7.5% by drinking it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle pour@5e Mondial de la BiŤre, Mulhouse - SO. Extremely thin-bodied pour, fizzy biscuit yellow. Heavy citrus resins in aroma, accompanied by a wheaty tartness. First mistook this for a PA and was chocked by its hop blast: taste has those well-engineered, slightly technocratic citrus peel resins, pith, lemongrass notes a-go-go, overdrawing a picture perfect parody of the 00ís West Coast IPA. On second sipping: more blossom, Thai basil leaf, caramelsed pineapple malts. I prefer my beer with an edge of grace, but when technocracy comes as juicily wrapped as here, itís hard for the lupophile synapses not to give in.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, pine. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle. Quickly dissipating sudsy head, but a small filmy head remained for awhile. Clear yellow color. Grapefruit aroma, hoppy citrus flavor. Smooth going down. Refreshing offering.

Solid citrus and some pine in aroma. Nice rich malt back bone with smooth bitter balance. Solid brew.

fidelis83 (1954) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Clear gold pour with a 2 finger, soapy white head that has good retention and leaves some decent lacing. Aroma: Big sweet citrus, fruity and floral hops, sweet malt, a little biscuit. Flavor: Sweet malt, honey, sweet grapefruit and orange citrus, floral and light spicy and cat box pine hops. Medium body, neutral to syrupy feel throughout, medium, sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, but like most Lagunitas beers Iíve had comes off as simple and soda-like due to a big sweetness and lack of any malt depth.

RafeAU (115) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2014
Beautiful pour with big frothy head. Pale amber. Big hop aroma. Taste is a little sweet with fruit flavour up front and only a little bitterness afterwards. Lovely stuff. bottle at greg?s NY pad.

Maxbier (268) - Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Hoppy West Coast IPA. Pour us golden yellow with big off white head. Aroma hits you before you even pour it. Aroma is grassy piney mango. Bitter hops up front. Light malty mouthfeel, the malt is just there to support the hops. Grassy, piney, hop bitter finish. A great IPA if you like hoppy beers.

pleasently surprised. bottle. silky smooth mouthfeel with citrus and hop flavor galore. Taste alittle smooth and has a delish bite and aftertaste. Booze is very very hidden.

Hazy fun treat but SALSA BABY!! WOOO. Ok, not as much salsa flavor in this one. Actually none. Lagunitas maybe have been reading my reviews :).
