355ml bottle, a nice ode to the maligned urban development eyesore that is suburbia.

This beer pours a clear, pale golden yellow hue, with three fat fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and somewhat creamy bone-white head, which leaves some decent crumbling snow pack lace around the glass as it slowly seeps away.

It smells of peppy orange, white grapefruit, and lemon skins, some dank pine resin, spicy wheat malt, a subtle caramel sweetness, mild woodsy notes, and further earthy, leafy hops. The taste is gritty, grainy, and spicy wheat, orange and red grapefruit bitters, acrid pine needles, a small stoney flintiness, and more plain earthy, weedy hops.

The carbonation is quite low-key, and mostly shy in terms of letting its frothiness be known, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, the overall hoppiness kind of taking the sheen off of things here. It finishes fairly dry, the cereal-esque wheatiness persisting well, alongside a lingering citrusy and piney bitterness.

Another style subsumed by the hopped to the nuts craze - this could very well just be referrred to as an IPWA (Indian Pale Wheat Ale). Wait, no, at 3.8% ABV, it would have to be an ISWA (India Session Wheat Ale). Anyways, this offering is indeed more hoppy than wheaty, and very much like the kids from the burbs who take a good thing and beat it to death via gentrification.
