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.

This beer has to be without a doubt my favorite session beer bar none out there. I believe this was my first beer I ever had from Three Floyds years and years ago but never gets old. I love the nose of this beer and how easy it goes down. Nothing like gumballhead in the summer.

Appearence: Has a golden,darker orange color to it with large bubbles of carbonation and pure white head.

Smell: Has lots of tropical smells-- mostly citrus-- orange peel and a little pineapple to the smell. No real malty smells at all.

Taste: Taste is all hops and pretty bitter. You get a lot of fruity flavors like the smell. You can taste an orange/grapefruit taste with a really dry finish to it. I can not detect much malt to this one at all. Mostly all hops and real dry and crisp on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Nice amount of carbonation and pretty thin like a typical IPA.

Drinkability: I will be able to put this one away no problem. Easy drinking and not to heavy on the palate so far. Good stuff but you can tell its lower in alcohol and not alot of malt going on.

Serving type: growler
