A-Somewhere in between wheat yellow and burnt amber.The liquid is very slightly hazy. The head is fluffy, pretty, and retains quite well. This beer has textbook lacing. Overall quite attractive.
S-Smell is better than expected. Surprisingly stiff hop aroma. Tropical fruits and a well integrated malt. Smells like an American IPA
T-Such a brilliant taste. Exceeded expectations. Very happy with this brew. Delicious light malty side is overpowered by the hoppy explosion. Very very tasty. Juicy tropical fruit flavors are stressed on the palate. Light spicy flavor rounds out the taste.
M-Well carbonated. Light bodied. Surprised by the hop factor. Seems too light to pack such flavor. The brew is not overly bitter but the tropic taste sticks and clings to your tongue.
D-Drinks like a dream. The surprisingly high ABV is hidden masterfully. This is supposedly a wheat ale? More like a sassy IPA. Love it. I think, and have had agreeing conversations with peers that this beer is great for both the beer-pros and the newbies. If this was presented to me before I began to experiment with craft beer, this would have absolutely changed my life.
