4.27/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle with no discernible freshness date into a 20 oz weizen glass. Certainly tastes fresh in spite of not being able to verify.

Appearance - A crystal-clear amber hue with some notes of brass and lazy, individual carbonation bubbles drifting towards the frothy, two-finger head. Dissipates to about a 1/8th finger after 5 minutes or so and leaves distinct but faint lacing.

Smell - Hits me before I even really stick my nose in the glass, because of how hop-forward it is, but in a good way. Perhaps that's partly due to the glass style, but also due to the great aromas going on in this beer. Piney notes on a bed of lemon zest, but with less acidity. Wonderfully intoxicating.

Taste - The promise of the smell was definitely delivered. Bready wheat folded with veins of hoppy bite. The wheat provides for a smoother aftertaste that allows the bitterness to be present, but doesn't linger.

Mouthfeel - A nice, chewy round mouthfeel. Medium-to-full bodied.

Overall a fantastic beer. It honestly reminds me a lot of another outstanding American Pale Wheat Ale offering by Boulevard: 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat. If I lived on the West coast outside of Boulevard's footprint, this beer would be a regular go-to. One of the best APWAs on the market today.

Best beer I've had to date. Gave it a 4.75 because I'm only 23 years old and havent had the plethora of brews that say a 60 year old veteran would. So I'd figure I would leave some room for a competitor.

But seriously, this beer is the real deal. Has you feeling good after 2-3 due to the nice ABV. Great bite and perfect finish.

I purchase a 6 pack whenever the opportunities presents itself. But a rare treat in Raleigh, NC.
