I'm not normally a fan of very hoppy beers but this is a great example of flavor and crisp bite. You can smell the layers of hops right from the start but the sharp taste makes this an excellent beer..

Medium hop. Smells more citrusy and spicy, not alcohol smell which is surprising for higher level. Little too citrusy of a hop for me, need more of a smooth aftertaste rather than grapefruit notes. Enjoyable beer overall

Poured from 12oz bottle into tall Heifen glass.

A: Clear golden color, topped by huge white foam that hangs on forever. It leaves behind a generous lace. After pouring only carbonation visible when taking a sip.

S: Great floral smell of hops, fruit and a hint of honey.

T: Taste follows smell with great balance between the bitter, flavor hops and malt sweetness.

M: Medium-low mouthfeel, with alcohol well hidden, low carbonation.

O: Very drinkable, well-balanced and flavorful beer.

Do people really find these pretentious reviews helpful?? One sounded like someone trying to be hip at a "Poetry Slam" ..... anyway....

The beer.

Look - Its got a nice Dark Golden color. Decent head, 1-2 fingers, very white. Decent lacing.

Nose - Spicy, floral, piney. Not much alcohol comes through which is surprising due to its high ABV. Not too hoppy on the nose, but they are there, mostly early addition hops for bittering.

Taste - Citrus bomb! Like Grapefruit?? Your gonna love this! Its solid grapefruit with pine and floral notes. Medium hopiness. Its a sleeper IPA.

Overall - It drinks well, not overly carbonated, nice mouth feel, not too filling. Good beer. Its definitely a different wheat beer.
