A- Pours a moderately hazy, orangish gold color with about a 3 finger head. Retention is tremendous and lacing is good.

S- Light to medium hops bitterness mixed in with some light wheat grains. Hops are fairly piney in flavor and stronger than expected in a pale wheat. There is a somewhat sticky sweet scent towards the end.

T- Starts with a mild hop character that progress until the midway point of the drink. The hop profile is not overly bitter, rather it is almost sweet after a slight piney kick in the tongue. The slight sweetness continues and mixes with the light wheat malt flavors towards the end before the hops make a small comeback, ending the drink with a bite.

M- Smooth and sticky on the palate with a moderate level of carbonation. A small amount of alcohol is detectable in the end of the taste and feel, keeping this one from being an entirely sessionable brew.

Overall, this is a unique and very good pale wheat ale. A style that has some very good examples, yet isn't terribly popular, this beer is just a little behind Gumballhead in overall quality.

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.
