32oz "howler" picked up at the brewery
L - hazed yellow body with a thinner off-white head that leaves a bit of sticky lacing as it slowly fades
S - fresh citrus (lemon, lime, and passion fruit) and grassy aroma with some juicy fruit and nutty wheat as well.
T - fruity, nutty, lemon, lime, and orange rind, passion fruit, a bit tropical, lemongrass, wheat, and white pepper on the finish
F - thin-to-medium body, perfect carbonation, finishes semi-bitter while being very refreshing
O - refreshing and unique hoppy American Pale Wheat Ale featuring hops from New Zealand. I would buy this again, especially in the summertime.

4.71/5 rDev +16%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: This beer pours a golden yellow color and slightly hazy. The head is creamy and very white. The head dissipates quickly leaving some nice lace before is all disappears.
Smell: The aroma is quite hoppy. The smell of fresh lemon peel and citrus is present. As it warms, the smell of orange peel is noticeable. Hops are the star of the show.
Taste: Not as hoppy as the smell, however, it has a clear bitterness at the front of the mouth and a slight bitterness in the finish. It is not overly hoppy. The hops are nicely balanced with the malt to make it a very easy drinking beer. The carbonation is high, making the beer refreshing and clean. The mouthfeel is lighter.
Overall: I did not expect a wheat beer to have such a hop presence, however, I really enjoyed this beer. It is good looking and great for the summer months.
Serving type: can
