look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Light copper color with a loose frothy head of thick bubbles that faded quickly. Not awesome, but looks like a summer brew should - light, but not like water (4.0). Pleasant light of sweet malts and thin citrus (3.5)

Taste isn't particularly well balanced, but I think it's pretty good - there is a bready malt backbone garnished by a surprisingly zesty hop bouquet and some orange (3.5). The mouthfeel is thin and it's drinkability is high, both well-suited attributes of a summer beer (4.5).

Overall, I think this is a tasty and totally refreshing brew. Well-done Shipyard. B

2.63/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into pint glass. Cloudy, light gold pour with a slim centimeter head that dissipated into a white ring.

Smell - wheat aroma with slight citrus and a bit of skunk cabbage.

Taste - wheat taste with a touch of yeast. Some lingering aftertaste at the end. Not a lot of flavor in this one.

Mouthfeel - light bodied and crisp. Probably best served on a hot summer day.

It didn't stink but not exactly memorable. It was a gift. Who I am not to drink a gifted six pack?
