Poured a nice clear light orange body with a half finger foamy white head. It looks quite nice, very inviting. Scents of earthy, vegetal hops, hints of tropical fruit, mostly mango, a bit of pine resin, a hint of orange and a little bit of alcohol. Overall impression of aroma is a nicely hop forward aroma that has most all of the typical West Coast aromas on display. Quite nice. Flavor begins with a nice vegetal hop flavor, mingling with pine resin, and a bit of indeterminate citrus. Bitterness is moderate. This moves into a middle with notes of orange zest and flesh and a touch of alcohol. Finish is medium-dry with notes of pine resin, earthy, vegetal hops, faint alcohol and a bit of grainy malt. Aftertaste is tropical fruit, pine resin, a bit of grainy malt and earthy hops. Overall impression is of a nicely hoppy beer that still lets a bit of the wheat malt shine through. Very nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, resinous and slightly chewy with a nicely slick feel with medium-low carbonation. Overall impression is of a good, smooth, resinous mouthfeel that is quite nice. Overall this is a nice hoppy wheat ale that is very pleasant in aroma and flavor and is aided by a nice mouthfeel. It is quite balanced and very drinkable, a good ale.

Outstanding American Pale Wheat Ale. Hoppy wheat ale. Pours to a nice deep wheat amber color. Aromas and tastes of pure bread. Help hide the bitter hoppiness. Very smooth and drinkable. Growler favorite. Little fruit - can't tell which. Dry malty flavor. Really good.
