my on-tap standby at the local daily bar on lincoln. so glad i talked them into getting this long ago.
a: clear gold with a tinge of orange, nice white head and lacing.
s: has that signature fff smell...is it the house yeast that that adds that unique extra fruity note? kinda like juicy fruit gum for lack of a better descriptor. amarillo hops are beautifully showcased here-tropical fruit and citrus explode out of the glass.
t: i'd never guess there was wheat in here, which is good for me. not missing that wheatish soury twang. this is significantly better ontap than bottle, the taste and mouthfeel are fuller and rounder. beautifully balanced between the lightly sweet bready malts and smooth, juicy hops. finish is dryish with lingering fruity lemony hops.
m: this feels much, much bigger than 4.5%...still don't know why many places (including this site) have it at 5.5%. i love the carbonation level/feel ontap.
o: thank allah i can drink this ontap on a regular basis, the only thing better is zombie dust. both are perfection.
Serving type: on-tap

4.03/5 rDev -4.3%

A: Only slightly hazy orange-gold body, tufts of bubbles, a good head that leaves a thin coating on the surface, a few legs of sticky lace.
S: Mostly strikingly clean hops, most citrus fruits. Faint background of wheat. Really good, but too hop-centric for the named style.
T: Again, too hoppy for the style, but it's too good for me to knock it much. Clean, clean hops showcasing a variety of citruses with minimal bitterness playing off a slightly sweet wheat base. Finish could be longer.
M: Supremely crisp. Fluid. Lively. Refreshing. This is fantastic.
O: A simple concept wonderfully executed. Exactly matches my preferences for low bitterness, restrained hopping, and mild wheat sweetness. It's between a wheat and an IPA, I guess they can't appease both camps ('this IPA is weak!' 'this wheat has too much hops!'). All said and done, a great, easily repeatable beer.
Serving type: bottle
