Wow, this beer really is good. A very hoppy and crisp wheat beer. It has a nice white head and clear golden amber color with a good looking carbonation. Smells good, hoppy crisp, a little citrusy and malty.

The taste is fantastic. It has the wheat maltness that you'd expect from a heaver wheat beer, but a crisp hoppiness that is almost IPA"esque." Nice fruity esters make this brew complicated and delicious. There's a hint of blueberry in the nose and aftertaste, along with the very present lingering hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is clean and crisp, lending towards the overall drinkability and outstandingness of this beer.

This is, hands down, one of my favorite beers. There, I said it.

Radiant appearance. Depth of honey orange color with vibrant clarity. Pours perfectly and leaves firm lace in the glass.

On the nose, both grassy and floral notes come forward. Additional complexity is revealed as beer warms slightly in the glass.

As to taste, the complexity continues. Big hop attack at first sip. Restrained but solid malt backbone to support it. Doubt I walked have nailed the wheat presence in a blind taste. It would seem to help keep things clean, not too sweet, to better showcase the vibrant and ample hop bitterness. Bravo!

It's a strong beer that makes its presence known in terms of mouthfeel, but without being cloying or sticking around like a bad houseguest.

Tasted blindly, I would have pegged this as an IPA in the style of Ranger, Racer 5, or Sculpin...but better. And those latter two are damn good beers!

So, I end where I began. This is one of my favorite beers. Period.
