A - Pours light amber, almost pale yellow, with about a 1/4 inch of nice white head.
S - Smell is by far the best feature of this beer. A nice piney, peppery, smell hits you as soon as you pop the cap. Tons of hops in the smell.
T - for the smell, I was expecting a lot, but then I remembered that it's a low gravity, wheat beer. Where are the hops I smell??? The taste is a bit watered down and thin. But I won't knock it because of it's style.
D - well, this beer is super drinkable, every day of the year. Hot, cold, in-between, it doesn't matter...it's smooth, refreshing, and smells awesome!!!

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.
