Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Light yellow, clear. A white one finger head that dissipates fast to medium bubbles. Frothy lacing.

S: Citrus-y hops, featuring lemons. Grassy and floral.

T: Smooth, semi- sweet. The citrus and floral balance takes away from the bitter hops. A touch of honey and spice makes everything nice. A very sessionable beer.

M: light to medium with light to medium carbonation.

O: Glad I got to try this very sought after brew. Now I see why it's so popular. A great back porch beer.

3.46/5  rDev -17.8%

Appearance: Pours a clear golden yellow. Medium head. Few bubbles rising to the surface.

Smell: Fresh, sweet, citrus, hoppy, acetone, slightly boozy.

Taste: Slightly sour, floral hops. Finishes clean. Slight acetone aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Slightly carbonated. Clean finish.

Overall: Decent balance. Unique for its style. I wish there were more wheat characteristics to the beer. I would drink this again, but wouldn't take it over Gumballhead.

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.
