Had on tap at TG brew house

A: fluffy white head that led to excellent lacing. Straw colored, with just a touch of haze

S: very hop forward, a little pine/dank with clear citrus notes. Perhaps a touch of wheat bread in the background

T/M: Taste is similar to nose, which is a very good thing. Hop forward yet still well balanced. A great beer for the season as it is not too filling nor over the top.

O: a wheat ipa from TG? Don't ask questions, just drink and enjoy. You will thank me for it.

Bomber poured into a snifter.

3.25 A: Well hazed golden yellow with a subtle brown tint. About one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.75 S: Simply marvelous. Sugary and tropical hoppiness in the form of candied mango, pineapple, and orange. Honey, bubblegum, floral and herbalness. Neutral wheat and a soft yeastiness.

4.25 T: Like the nose, hops are running the show. Tropical fruits mentioned above, floral hop flavor, hints of grapefruit and herbalness. Honey, lemon peel, bubblegum, spiciness, and bready yeast.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch bity with just a slight creaminess. Decent, but not great here.

4.0 D: Another super solid beer from TG. They can't really do wrong.

L - Light pale yellow. Very attractive and alluring. Pure white head forms at pour. Nice lacing and retention from the wheat grain bill.

S - Some hops from but a little faded. A soft presence. Not overwhelming. Some pine and citrus.

T - First sip is citrusy and juicy. I hate calling an IPA juicy but that was the first word I thought of. Tropical fruits.

F - Very soft feel. Super pleasant in the mouth. Carb is nice and smooth.

O - A nice offering from TGB, but not as great as the others I have had. Still worth trying.

This feels like a hop candy that melts in your mouth. Super subtle hop flavor and smell. Crisp and refreshing. Hardly any malt that you might think would be there in place of the hops. Easy drinking that I hope to try on a hot summer day.
