There is so much going on with this ale I can't even explain it. A little bit of everything which is a good thing.

This is a fantastic beer. Really great flavor, wonderfully balanced, very drinkable and will kick your butt if you have too many.

The wheat marries beautifully with the citrus-forward hops, keeping that resinous, piney note so pervasive within this style in check, while adding some bready texture to the mid-palate. Finishes dry but with a smooth, honeyed feel. Great balance.

A: Pours a clear gold with a thick, tenacious white head.

S: Aromas of minerals, pine, spruce, herbs, lemon, lime, bitter orange, grapefruit, and white wheat bread dominate the nose.

T: Robust notes of minerals, crackers, wheat bread, biscuits, herbs, pine, spruce, lemon, lime, bitter orange, and grapefruit absolutely throttle the palate. The finish is predictably bitter and resinous with pronounced lemon, grapefruit, herb, and pine notes underscored by faint traces of wheat bread and minerals.

M: Medium-bodied, soft, and smooth in the mouth. Carbonation is mildly prickly. Alcohol is practically undetectable. This ale is easy to drink despite its strength.

O: A really great ale that straddles the line between a hoppy pale wheat ale and a wheat-based IPA. This one is definitely worth seeking out on a warm day.
