A- Pours a moderately hazy, orangish gold color with about a 3 finger head. Retention is tremendous and lacing is good.
S- Light to medium hops bitterness mixed in with some light wheat grains. Hops are fairly piney in flavor and stronger than expected in a pale wheat. There is a somewhat sticky sweet scent towards the end.
T- Starts with a mild hop character that progress until the midway point of the drink. The hop profile is not overly bitter, rather it is almost sweet after a slight piney kick in the tongue. The slight sweetness continues and mixes with the light wheat malt flavors towards the end before the hops make a small comeback, ending the drink with a bite.
M- Smooth and sticky on the palate with a moderate level of carbonation. A small amount of alcohol is detectable in the end of the taste and feel, keeping this one from being an entirely sessionable brew.
Overall, this is a unique and very good pale wheat ale. A style that has some very good examples, yet isn't terribly popular, this beer is just a little behind Gumballhead in overall quality.

Beautiful bright golden color with a thick two fingers head with decent retention.
Nice citrus tropical aroma with notes of oranges, grapefruit, pineapple and mango.
Flavor mostly follows nose. Notes of grapefruits, tea leaves, toasted malts and some white bread, lemongrass, caramel, mango, honey, tangerines and pine. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with perfect carbonation.
Delicious and pleasant tropical IPA (or even a hoppy APA), hard to say anything bad about this beer. Balanced with a decent complexity and huge drinkability, I could drink this the whole day. Perfectly executed, great choice of hops and wheat gave it some roundness.
