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.
