Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
An American Wheat Ale, Gumballhead is named in honor of the underground comic book cat created by Rob Syers. Initially a seasonal summer beer, now brewed year round due to demand. This beer helped redefine American Wheat Beers. Brewed with Amarillo Hops and a generous portion of American red wheat, Gumballhead has a complex hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, marmalade and peach. These flavors combined with low bitterness make Gumballhead a refreshing American Wheat Beer that doesn’t suck.

Pours pale orange with a small head. Nose is rainbow bubblegum, soft orange and grapefruit meat, some light spices. Mouth is lightly sweet, banana, bitter hops at the finish with some citrus rind. End of finish is sort of discordant. An interesting take on a wheat beer, one of the more brightly hopped ones I've had, and well done. That being said, I can't see this having a regular place among beers I would like to drink regularly as it's kind of too sweet for a pale ale and too brightly hopped for a wheat beer.
