4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From memory: draft. Pronounced citrus, grapefruit and honey aromas. Refreshing on palate, with a lighter body, yet with a richness that is simply delicious. Very enjoyable. Closer, if not indistinguishable from a west coast IPA in aroma and flavor, though with a mouthfeel of a wheat beer. Yum.

On tap at World of Beer, Raleigh. Welly well, I’d not have guessed this was a "wheat ale" given how righteously hoppy and IPA-ish it is. But it’s Lagunitas, so . . . I dug it. Golden pour with a light, frothy head. Nose of mild citrus and tons of ripe, grassy bitterness. Some faded paper malts mar it a bit in the taste, but there’s tons of grapefruit and grass to satisfy. luttonm (6854) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Draft at The Pine Box, Seattle. Golden yellow, white head. Juicy hop aroma, sour ginger, sweet soda pop body with citrus hops dominating. Dry medium IPA phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe. Pours a clear gold color with a finger of frothy off-white head. Aroma of fresh, herbal hops, lemon, orange citrus, sugar, and wheat. Flavor of herbs, citrus, wheat, floral notes, and soap. Light-bodied, with a citrusy, fresh, crisp mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I love the hoppy wheat ale trend. This is a good one.

Tap at Milltown. Orange with a small white head. Nose is wheat and toffee, citrus, lemon/lime. Flavor is similar, buttery wheat is noticeable, strong lemon lime notes. Interesting but not a fave.

Dract at sb. Pours a hazy light amber with loose white head. Big tangy orange and tangerine nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Wheat notes are there but soft, a little nuttiness and tang...but it’s mostly about the bright citric notes. Crisp bright orangey finish. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2012
Draught @ Toronado, San Francisco. baraciisch (3400) - California, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of strong pungent lemon, toffee anf wheat. Flavour is very refreshing with malts, strong lemon, grassy hops and toffee. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a light refreshing finish with some bitterness. A basic summery brew.
Clear yellow in color... Aroma of wheat and citrus... Flavor is citrus, light wheat malts, nice bitter finish... Well done hayduke (5703) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
On draft at The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. This came in a 16 oz glass as rich gold with a big, foamy, and attractive white head and excellent lacing. Nose of strong citrus and pine. Full body probably due to the wheat. Smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is rich, with some sweetness, and a lot of tropical fruit. Finishes with some spiciness. An outstanding wheat beer.
