Medium hop. Smells more citrusy and spicy, not alcohol smell which is surprising for higher level. Little too citrusy of a hop for me, need more of a smooth aftertaste rather than grapefruit notes. Enjoyable beer overall

Poured from 12oz bottle into tall Heifen glass.

A: Clear golden color, topped by huge white foam that hangs on forever. It leaves behind a generous lace. After pouring only carbonation visible when taking a sip.

S: Great floral smell of hops, fruit and a hint of honey.

T: Taste follows smell with great balance between the bitter, flavor hops and malt sweetness.

M: Medium-low mouthfeel, with alcohol well hidden, low carbonation.

O: Very drinkable, well-balanced and flavorful beer.

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.
