4.61/5 rDev +9.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Serving: Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Hazy, golden color with a solid, off-white head that slowly recedes while leaving behind immense amounts of lacing. The lacing is perhaps that most impressive aspect of the appearance and the beer presents itself as very inviting.
Smell: Clean, wheat aroma with a buffet of citrus and fruity scents. I am having difficulty pinpointing individual aroma flavors from the hops as they seem to be diverse and well balanced with one another. Regardless, my sense of smell is satisfied as my tastebuds beg for their turn.
Taste: Amazing balance between the refreshing wheat malt and strong hop character. The citrus of the hops stands out with lemon, lime, and grapefruit and the finish is perfectly bitter. Just the right amount of bite. The alcohol is completely hidden despite the 7.5% ABV.
Mouthfeel: I can't think of many beers with a better mouthfeel than this one. The texture is thicker than a pale ale, as it should be, but not heavy or syrup like. The carbonation is dense with fine little bubbles. Very impressive.
Overall: This is by far the finest wheat beer I have had. As a hophead, it satisfies my need for bitterness than most other wheat beers lack. I truly hope that more brewers head in the direction of aggressively hopped wheat ales.
