2.8/5 rDev -24.1%
Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass. Best before June 2014.
Real nice crystal clear and brass dark copper brown with some cola size rising fast bubbles. Head doesn't form much, only about a tan finger that dissolves to a thin puck and leaves a collar.
Toasty aroma, not much hop action as described going on but I am not expecting it to be. Nice soft caramel and fairly straight forward, there is a hint of some fruit though.
Palate is heavily carbonated, and very metallic and mineraly. First sip I am looking for some of that malt caramel sweetness and instead I get a large blast of carbon dioxide. Large mineral and metallic finish on this beer, my fillings feel like they are on fire. Some warmth and time provides a little more malt depth, but the aftertaste is really not pleasant. Texture on this is really odd and destracting as my tongue feels run over by sawdust.
Overall it's just another reminder why I steer clear of organic beer.

Citrus hops and a nutty brown malt smell. Nice hop crisp and the nutty flavor and citrus herbal hop bitterness melding together in the rest of the sip. Very nice. Its slightly sweet but the bitterness from the Citra hop they use really lasts.
This is borderline IPA in my opinion. Especially with the lingering bitterness and the point they make to say that they exclusively use the Citra hop in the process of brewing it. I also try to eat all organic as well so this beer is a huge plus for me and I may be a bit biased but I can't help but say this beer is great.
The nutty malt which is almost like peanuts and the bright citrus herbal hop combination is a bit different so it definitely gives a unique taste but it still stands out as a unique must try beer in my opinion.

12 oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a tulip. Best before June 2014 notched on the label.
Pours a very clear deep bronze/ brown color. Small amount of off white head from the pour, but what's there seems to retain nicely. Decent lacing as well.
Strange aroma, almost smells a bit off. Maybe it's the toasted wheat, it definatly has a toasted aroma. Nutty cardboard?
A much cleaner taste, light toast notes broke up by some dry citrusy hop bitterness. As it warms hints of a dry tropical fruity hop. Finishes with a clean, light bitterness.
Light and drinkable.
Definatly sessionable and a clean beer. That's really all I can say about this beer. As a true beer geek, this is not something I would seek out.

Half finger head with nice lacing on a clear amber with a very slight golden hue body. Aroma of earthy hops, caramel, toasted malts and sweet breads. Flavor is nicely balanced with earthy and bready flavors and sweetness with wheats and rye. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Fairly certain this is the first of this style I have had. Very drinkable and flavorful.
