4.03/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured into a pint glass from the 12 oz. bottle.
Pale golden-orange color with a very slight haze to it. White head and lots of beautiful bubbles lurking below the surface from the carbonation.
Smell is of floral hops with some tropical fruit aromas. A bit of an underlying sweetness.
Hard to believe this is a wheat beer - starts out with very straightforward grainy, dry malt; quickly followed by the hops that begin piney and floral, but quickly turn into a biting rindy bitterness that lingers for some time. In fact, this aftertaste is, to me, the most noteworthy characteristic of this brew - the resonant bitterness that fades slowly away.
Mouthfeel is a great balance of crisp carbonation and smooth, medium body. Pleasant and drinkable.
A nice offering, although, if inspired by Three Floyds' Gumballhead, it really doesn't match up. Gumballhead is so much more balanced and nuanced. This is bold and for the most part, well done, but appears hamhanded next to a brew like Gumballhead. But that's just my opinion.

4.08/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a clear yellow with lone bubbles letting loose to feed a big off white head that towers over this brew. So much sticky lace left behind on my imperial pint glass.
Aroma is nice floral hops mingled with good tropical fruit notes all on a honey dipped bready malt base. Lots of hop aromas but not overly bitter smelling, nice.
Taste is like the aroma to a point, nice malts sweet and bready, hops kick in more like pineapple and grapefruit combined. Flavor is good lightly bitter just not as juicy as it smelled. Some light spice in the finish with lingering hop resin.
Mouthfeel is good lighter medium with fairly mellow carbonation for the massive head.
Overall nice easy drinking brew, seems to go down way to easy for 7.5% which could lead to trouble. One of the better ones in this style.
