Do people really find these pretentious reviews helpful?? One sounded like someone trying to be hip at a "Poetry Slam" ..... anyway....

The beer.

Look - Its got a nice Dark Golden color. Decent head, 1-2 fingers, very white. Decent lacing.

Nose - Spicy, floral, piney. Not much alcohol comes through which is surprising due to its high ABV. Not too hoppy on the nose, but they are there, mostly early addition hops for bittering.

Taste - Citrus bomb! Like Grapefruit?? Your gonna love this! Its solid grapefruit with pine and floral notes. Medium hopiness. Its a sleeper IPA.

Overall - It drinks well, not overly carbonated, nice mouth feel, not too filling. Good beer. Its definitely a different wheat beer.

Slightly misty golden, small white head.
Smell of pineapple, mango, sweeter grapefruit, salty buttered biscuits, caramel glazed peach.
Sweet malty goodness, caramel, hints of honey, sweet orange and tropical fruit (mostly some mango pulp). Grapefruit peel and pine, nice and hoppy with a long finish, just mildly bitter to slowly tone down the sweetness.
Aftertaste is hoppy, lingering mellow malt sweetness, still keeping those tropical hints. Pinch of salt. Medium body and carbonation, a tiny bit sticky,
A really solid wheat ale, with some complexity and quite intense. One of the best i've ever had.

The floral aroma is amazing and the hoppy entrance quickly turns into a slightly bitter finish. Overall a great beer, one of my favorites.

Grapefuit is the major note, but pretty light and balanced with some dry fruit and distant malt. Refreshing and more complex than most wheat beer.
