Tasting Lagunitas Doppel Weizen

The Doppel Weizen from Lagunitas Brewing Company is a Weizenbock with a little bit of a bite in my opinion. This 8.7% ABV and 47 IBU lager does bring some sweetness as expected, but is also does have a slight bit of hoppiness. Nothing overpowering, but it is detectable. The aftertaste for me was slightly reminiscent of being a bit citrusy like a tangerine, but overall I thought it was fairly decent and worth a try. My Untappd Rating on this one was a just making it 3 out of 5.
