Growler shared by Mac, thanks!

Straw-colored body & decent white head. Fresh hop aroma billows from my pint glass, imparting a cloud of juicy fruits and floral scents around the table.

As is typical of me with Single IPAs, I love the aroma more than the taste. There's definitely some wheat-infused sweetness here, though the overall flavor profile is merely decent to my taste buds. Not overly hoppy, though, and that's a good thing. Clean and refreshing; should pair well with a hot day spent outdoors.

Pours a nice white head with spiderweb lacing. Clear bright yellow body. "East Coast Ales" on the side of the label, trying to figure out if this is some of the East vs West coast jibe some people talk about.

Aroma is lemongrass, sorachi ace hops (6 oz in my fridge) wheat and a pungent lemon.

Taste is great for a Pale American Wheat Ale. I am a huge fan of gumballhead, but if I had the two of these in six packs next to each other, I would choose Limone Luppolo in a second. Too bad it is not in six packs... hopefully in due time though at the new CL location with a full bottling line. In any case, medium mouthfeel for the style and high carbonation with a little carb tongue sting at the end.

Overall a great APWA. This is easily in contention for my favorite American Pale Wheat Ale, with lil Sumpin Sumpin riding on its side.

A hazed gold with a prodigious head. Decent though not overwhelming lace, covering remains throughout the glass. Smell has lots of citrus and pine with faint notes of grass. Taste is like a wheat IPA with a lemon zest squeeze. Notes of wheat malt in the core try to reign in the rampant and deliciously assertive hops. Dry grapefruit finish with lemony pine oil on my palate. Feel is crisp and medium light with gently creamy carbonation. A great summer beer but an equally satisfying winter football beer. Nice

Got a growler of this for my first ever BA trade. So glad I had the opportunity to try this. This is a very refreshing, light beer. Lots of citrus notes, a good hop profile, and a smooth finish. This is a perfect summer type beer. I wish it was more readily available. Looking forward to trying more of Captain Lawrence's offerings in the future.
