Poured from bottle into perfect pint glass. Big fluffy, creamy white, 3 finger head; it's very frothy. Eventually settles, with legit cling. Very nice golden honey, light yellow color. Smell consists of light pine hops, wheat, sweet resinous hop. Taste is similar. Grassy wheat, some pine, cream, sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick, with light bitterness from hops, smooth. Very good, overall. This has been one my favorites since I first tried it. It's crisp and refreshing on this summer evening.

Pours a honey golden with a huge white foamy head. A nice sweet malt underbody providing some nice doughiness to the aroma sitting alongside some grassy hops and some grapefruit. Flavor offers some moderately bitter grassy and citric hops alongside some sweet wheat malt. A crisp, medium bodied. Overall, not a bad beer.

The beer pours a clean golden color like very light yellow piss, though there is a little of the wheat haze towards the middle and lots of bubbles tumbling up from the bottom. The head is finger thin with big white bubbles and a nice easy retention at a half a finger that leaves sticky thin clouds of lacing on the side of the glass. The beers smells surprisingly nice and wet with pine hops and some nice citrusy tingles, but I don’t notice any of the wheat in the smell and the malt and yeast seem to be light in the smell. The beer tastes much like it smells, thick with resin-like pine hops. The malts are faint in the initial sip as the hops take the full “blam” but the after taste is a lovely light sweet wheat malt with side tingling from the hops. There are also some nice light citrus tangs in this beer reminiscent of oranges and mango. The mouthfeel is initially really rough with carbonation and the hops bitter bite, leaving the tongue feeling assaulted. The beer is really clean and refreshing on the tongue, but the after feel is only lightly tingly with hop and a slight bitter-burn on the tongue, while the rest of the mouth has a thin sheen of saliva. That initial mouthfeel is too rough for my taste, but mellows out to a more manageable state. Overall the beer a nice hopbomb of a pale wheat ale, reminiscent more of Sierra Nevada’s Pale ale or an IPA than of anything thing else I have tried. This is admittedly my first heavily hopped wheat ale, and I love the hops in it, and the aftertaste of wheat malt is very intriguing, but the rest of it isn’t very different from other ales.
