12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

pours a clear, bright golden-yellow while yielding a fluffy off-white head. very respectable retention and a lot of nice lacing. great presentation. nose is very nice, offering a lot of citric and tropical hoppiness with some background characters of floral hops and wheat. really good.

taste follows the nose well - exceeds it even - with tons of citrus and tropical fruit, some floral notes and a wheaty/malty backbone. very tasty. medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.

overall, this is my first (and definitely not last) go-round with this beer, and color me impressed. strikes me as a perfect summer barbecue brew. (not that i'll be confining my sumpin sumpin enjoyment merely to those occasions.) and so widely available to boot. not to be missed.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured from a bottle into a new belgium globe glass. crystal clear goden color with a bright white head

smells sweet and hoppy and grassy

tastes is mostly hop upfront, then honey and malt and bread

feels crisp and es really easy to drink

overall, I didn't know what to expect from this one. I would call it a pale ale, but I get some wheat out of it too. good for a hot day and will probably be really good with rich foods

The color is gorgeous.  It's an inviting golden color with about 1 finger of head on the the pour that settles to fine lace topping the glass.  The aroma is phenomenal!  Sweet, fresh, juicy grapefruit. The hops make this really bright and fresh. There is also a mellow bubble gum hint that is barely noticeable, but adds something to round out or balance the hop notes. The taste starts with fresh hoppy tones of citrus and ends on the slightly sweet side that's a bit bready and a bit pineapple.  This one is full, has balanced flavor, and a medium to light body. It's not overly bitter and it's quite drinkable. 

This one is goes perfect after a sunny, early summer day! Delicious!

Continuing with my new review format, I enjoyed this delicacy during game seven as my beloved Celtics went to their demise (go Thunder!!!) Poured into a Stone Nonic pint glass. As it says on the bottom of the six pack carrier, this beer defies categorization and I happily agree. As a steady IPA and DIPA consumer, I found this to be a more than refreshing change of pace, it will definitely be a regular in my summer rotation. Heartily endorsed by the White Creek KRU!!!!
