A: Nice thin layer of foam that sticks around, some decent lacing along the edge, light gold with hint of copper – 4.00, S: Amazing nose – very gentle sweetness, lots of tropical fruits including pineapple and some citric grapefruit, quite floral, bready malts though they definitely play second fiddle to the hops – 4.50, T: Tons of grapefruit and lemon zest, hint of chalkiness and heap of bitterness, subtle sweetness – 4.50, M: Mouth feel is crisp and clean – 4.25, D: Very refreshing with wonderful hop bite, extremely drinkable beer – 4.25

A: Pours an absolutely crystal clear golden yellow with 3 fingers width of dense, bright white head. Head dissipates down slowly to a thick film that remains throughout the majority of the drink. Leaves a sheet of fine bubbled lacing.

S: Tropical fruit hop notes with big aromas of pineapple, mango, and papaya. Sweet malts, and spicy and sweet wheat aromas. Citrus notes in the form of orange and lemon-lime. A hint of piney bitterness. Fantastic.

T: Sweet characters are what I get first, sweet malts, wheat and some sweeter fruit notes. Next the hops come out with pine and citrus in the form of orange and lemon zest. Huge hop notes for the style. Excellent.

M/D: Medium body, exceptionally smooth for the style, slightly drying on the finish, great drinkability for the ABV.

O: Overall, what a fantastic beer. Hands down the best American Pale Wheat Ale Ive ever had (blows Gumballhead out of the water if you ask me). Highly recommend.
