12 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a pint glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a translucent pale orange/golden color with fizzy carbonation and a frothy two finger head. The retention's great, and there's tight, sticky lacing. A little generic.

S - Bright, fresh grapefruit dominates. Faint lemon zest and grassy hops. Restrained pine. I don't notice any wheat, but the pale malts lend a noticeable sweetness. Seemingly well balanced. Mild to moderate in strength.

T - Pungent cascade and centennial hopping. Spicy grapefruit zest and light perfumy floral notes open, countered by sweet caramel and pale malts. A bit grassy and alcoholic on the finish. The alcohol's definitely noticeable, but it's unobtrusive. Very well balanced. Tasty stuff.

M - Well carbonated. A little heavier then I'd like. Medium bodied.

D - You'd be hard pressed to find many beers in the style that are comparable (I can think of one). Incredibly easy drinking and well priced. A bit simple, but incredibly refreshing.

I was really looking forward to trying this beer, since people say it's a lot like Gumballhead, and some say it's better. It smells amazing, but as far as taste goes, I wouldn't have it again: the bitterness of the hops is overbearing and there doesn't seem much else to the flavor. There is no subtle complexity that Gumballhead has. This beer tastes like an IPA, and I'm not an IPA fan. Wish it had less bitterness and more of a complex wheat flavor.
