4.11/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Drank 6.29.14, poured into a Lagunitas Mason Glass from a 12oz bottle.

A: Bright and clear, coloring similar to a fine filtered apple juice. An aggressive pour results in 1.5 fingers worth of very light, bubbly, stark white head... which slooowly dissipates leaving behind copious amount of lacing. Retains a nice moderate cap. Carbonation is very visual, and long lasting.

S: Immediately reminds me of Gumballhead, only more aggressive. Citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon, has a very tart aroma to its hops which is backed by a malted wheat scent. Overall, a pretty mild nose for something with 70+IBU

T: Malty sweetness, followed by a kick of crisp citrus, and finishes with a soft, bready malt that lasts a few seconds after sip, leaving your mouth with only a ghost of hop bitterness until you reach for your next taste.

M: Smooth and crisp, this beer is all sorts of dangerous given its 7.5% ABV. Pretty typical feel for the style, but the crispness is what sets it apart. Medium body with moderate, short lasting carbonation.

O: A refreshing, unique, simple beer that goes down way too easy for something that tastes so good. One of my summer go to beers.

4.13/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bright golden colored with excellent clarity. A half inch off eggshell white head. Pungent aroma of tropical and citrus hops. In the forefront,I taste plenty of citrus hops with the tropical hops and pale wheat playing more of a background note. There back of the palate is fading pungent hops giving way to pale wheat. The mouth is moderately carbonated and refreshing.
