(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a hazy deep lemon body with a creamy off-white head that last and sticks to the glass with each sip. There is a sea of microbubbles trailing up the side of the glass.
S- The full aroma of hops comes through even during the pour. the full juicy hops have a bright pungency to them with green citrus rind and some pithy notes. There is a soft spicey hop quality in the finish. As the beer opens the cat pee aroma grows to dominate but it has enough support that it is not bad.
T- The green bright pungent hops have some fruity notes and some green rind note to it in the finish but there is no hop bitterness at all. The gentle green hop note lingers for a moment. As the beer opens there is a woody hop character that finishes the beer.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a nice creamy fizz that enhances the hop finish and no alcohol heat noticed.
O- The bright full hops have some nice depth and blends together a lot of different characteristics. This has a full mouthfeel but it is not a filling beer. Very sessionable.

Got this in a very generous trade along with Gumballhead. Lots of people compare the two...huh? Not even close. Poured slightly hazy with a white foamy head and very little nose. It had even less flavor. I guess I'll just agree to disagree with the majority on this one.

16 oz. can poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Very hazy orange with a nice white head. Nice collar and surface foam.
Smell - Very wheaty. Nice hop character though. Citrus hop aroma. Grapefruit.
Taste - Hops right up front. Tons of wheat behind it. More wheat than hops but still good. Low bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Light body. Well carbonated. Great drinking.
Overall - Half Acre does light hoppy beers so well. No exception here.

4.11/5 rDev +1.2%
Pale yellow color, slightly hazy, and excellent head retention.
It has amazing citrus hop aroma, especially for a wheat. Fresh cut grass and wheat malt, too.
It's a aggressively hopped wheat. Oranges, grass, and light lemon.
Light and crisp mouthfeel with good carbonation.
This is an easy drinking wheat that satisfies hop cravings. I imagine this to be a great summer beer and am stoked they'll be canning it through the summer. J
