4.14/5 rDev -1.7%
A: golden, very clear, looks like a good strong ale or lager. S: definitely the low light of this beer, get some sweet bready smell and some floral notes up front but it then turns to an almost sour urine smell, sorry but that's what I'm getting here :( T: up front has a familiar ale or strong lager taste, clean and wheaty, getting a real bready malty sweetness at the back of my mouth, finishes very bitter. M: pretty light, good carbonation, pretty dry from all the hops bite. O: Why did I wait so long to give this a shot, it's a good ale with some real hops bite.

4.5/5 rDev +6.9%
Appearance: light yellow, and fairly clear with a puffy white head.
Smell: The smell is very good, I get a lot of floral and fruity notes, but can't discern specifics.
Taste: Again there are strong floral a fruity notes, with a slightly sweet undertone. This is all balanced with a strong, but note over powering bitterness. Overall I think the balance is just right.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and slightly thick, presumably from the wheat. There is a good amount carbonation to cut through the hops and keeps the finish from being overly bitter.
Overall: This is my favorite hoppy beer, and one of my favorite beers overall. I think the balance between the slightly sweet malt background, fruity hop flavors, and strong but not overpower bitterness is perfect. I could drink this all day.

3.93/5 rDev -6.7%
Appearance: Pours a clear golden with a one-finger head.
Aroma: Citrus (probably grapefruit) with slight sweet spice (maybe orange).
Taste: Follows the aroma but not as hoppy as the aroma would suggest. The sweetness is nicely mellow. Hops linger along with some orange.
Mouthfeel: Medium light body, with a somewhat light carbonation.
Overall: A nicely balanced, refreshing beer with very interesting and nicely done hops. Although this isn't my favorite style, I liked it -- definitely palatable to a malt head like me.
