There is something so zombie dust about this beer. Sure it as best I know isn't a one top beer and I really doubt it is all Circa, but damn if it doesn't have that same citrus one hop like note. The difference being wheat and a lot less malt and alcohol feel.
Pours crystal clear as most american wheat beers do, minimal carbonation but it leave a good bit of lacing. Pretty lively carbonation, but nothing like the explosive Belgian and German beers do.
The aromas are hops and more hops, the malt is nearly gone. Still nothing to bite you or over power, just citrus juicy melons pineapples and grapefruit.
This one has citrus notes with a nice hop character from start to finish with late what drying effect that dies to the hop finish. To say this is the best American wheat beer is an understatement, this is actually good beer which no other American wheat I've had could ever dream of claiming.
Extremely drinkable though I personally like a touch more body. Still for a summer beer chaser look no further.
It isn't dreadnaught, panzer, alpha king, or zombie dust...it is lighter yet still packs such a wonderful hop profile and presence that I just can't say enough about what this beer does. I want to knock it for something but damn...just can't.
