3.58/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Slightly hazed nectary gold color with a rich and long-lasting head. Lacing is pretty minimal, however.

Smells wheaty and a little sweet. Even a little caramelly. Some citrus hops make do in the aroma. Not bad.

Has a dry, hoppier flavor for a wheat ale. Wheat tones blanched by floral, piney, and citrus hops. Skinny on sweetness with some hunky bitterness for the style. Feels almost creamy with bushy carb, to boot. Hardly a boring wheat.

Very likeable. A bit one-note, but I love that the note is hop-related.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce can into pint glass; no can dating, but was released recently. Pours hazy bright gold color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, floral, grass, light pine, wheat, cracker, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with dank citrus/grassy hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, wheat, cracker, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, wheat, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dank citrus/grassy hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish, Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pale wheat ale. Nice juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.68/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear straw yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a very thin cap

S: House yeast, some wheat, and some fruity and floral hops stand out

T: House yeast starts things off again, followed by a nice fruitiness and some floral notes. Wheat is a bit of an undertone. Finishes with a bit of bitterness

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice wheat beer with a good hop kick. The house yeast might be a little prevalent, but get past that and it's a solid summer brew

3.76/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a hazy yellow-orange color with a one finger head of white foam floating atop. The head fades quite fast leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer heaviest of a wheaty smell along with a tangerine and orange aroma. Some lighter hop smells of a grapefruit and pine nature are there as well along with a light lemon smell rounding out the aroma nicely.

Taste – The taste begins with a wheaty bread flavor mixed with a bit of a caramel and light orange sweetness. The orange seems to fade rather fast from the taste being replaced by some hop flavors of a grapefruit nature. Other flavors of grass and a very light pine develop on the tongue more toward the end of the taste and with a little bit of lemon coming to the tongue as well, leaving one with a rather refreshing and decently hopped citrus wheat flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are nice for creating a crisp feel and complement well the citrus and wheat flavors of the beer.

Overall – A rather enjoyable wheat brew with a good showing of citrus and hop. A rather nice summer drinker.
