look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours a brilliant golden with a billowing ivory head that lingers.

Pineapple, dank cannabis, resin, and fruit cocktail form the aroma. Extremely complex, and not at all what I expected.

Flavor is less fruity, tending more toward the resiny side, but tropical fruit does ever in a softer form. What forms the backbone, bridging the gap between fruity and resiny hops.

Body is a touch on the light side, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

Probably the best American wheat ale I've had. Wish the fruity character were more pronounced in the flavor, bit a great beer, overall.

After I drank the first few sips of this is tasted really Hoppy but in a good way. Fairly Floral. Good thick taste. Hard to describe but even though it is not the same type of beer it really tasted like a beer that I had last week in California. Pliney the Elder! The taste was about 80% similar. So if you want something that tastes similar but live in Texas like I do go buy some Little Sumpin to satisfy your Pliney the Elder needs.
