look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Really good; combined the best of both pale ales and wheats to make a great anytime beer.

Appearance: hazy, golden, light head.

Smell: hop aroma, balanced by sweetness.

Mouthfeel: crisp, rather carbonated.

Overall: very good-- I'm not sure if they consider this one of their standard beers, but it's really good, and much better than their other basic beers that I'd imagine many people would order, particularly their IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a golden yellow with a nice thick white head.

Smells of citrusy fruits and sweet malt. Some bready yeast and malts.

Citrus fruits take the forefront of this beer. A little more hoppy than I expected. Very nice and refreshing.

Mouthfeel is creamy. Perfectly carbonated.

Overall this is a good local beer. I prefer a darker beer but on hot days this is very refreshing.

A - Bright pale orange in color. This beer appears from the outset to have a relatively light body and lingering head.

S - The scent of this beer is wonderful blend of hops in the forefront with wheat and citrus behind. Couldn't ask for a better or cleaner smell to go with the summer heat.

T - As with the smell, the flavor is also hoppy. Hoppier than many other pale wheats I have tried in the past. But this hop profile is still in balance with the wheat malt that forms the backbone of this brew. Everything is followed up with a clean finish.

M - Light and crisp, just as I hoped for this kind of brew.

O - An easy, fresh drink that would be great for the summertime.
