On tap at Mellow Mushroom, Carmel,Indiana
Had heard nothing but good about this one and I must say it holds very true!
Brilliant golden pour sightly foggy with a decent head,nice lacing.
Clean smelling with a zesty, flowery fruitiness!
Crisp taste with a firm hops presence quite flavorful with the snap of some wheatiness.
mouthfeel was quite uplifting and re-freshing,pleasant fruitiness lingering in all the right places.
Came damn close to getting a "5" in this department, paired well with all the different foods at our table ,but could have easily drank this one solo for quite some time. If ya see it,grab it! CHOICE!!!!

4.03/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
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.
