Not bad for a wheat & hops beer. 64.20 IBU, 7.5% etoh. Very drinkable! Almost like a desert beer. Has a sweet aftertaste. I first had it had RhodeSide Grill in Arlington, VA. The 2nd time I had it was as Jaleo (a José Andrés restaurant) in Wash DC just last week. Bought a 6 pack at Whole Foods on P street for $9.99. This is one of my top 6 beers for sure!

Quite a strong american wheat ale if you ask me. I had a bad experience with little sumpin extra so lets see how this goes. Pretty clear bright orange color with a thin white head which settles to a sticky lace. Pungent nose from the get go. Extremely ripe tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, papaya, grapefruit and a thin malt body below it. I'm excited.

Pretty big complex beer. Big full mouthfeel but goes down smooth. Good carbonation. Sweet tropical fruits with a hint of taffy and caramel. Wheaty goodness on the middle of the palate with a sharp bitter edge. The hops are really bright and fruity and provide a nice balance to the subtle malt body. Great balance and all the flavors play really well together. Great how the hops add to the sweetness and the balance. Very nice. Great damn beer. We need to see more of it NJ.
