3.83/5 rDev -9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Served from a Bomber into a mug.
Apperance: Pours a slightly hazey yellow/orange. Small one finger head with scattered beading. Not much head retention but a nice collar is formed.
Smell: This has the aroma of citrus hops and I will say that I was not expecting that from a wheat beer. A little hay and an ever so gentle suggestion of bananna. Smells pretty fresh.
Taste: The citrus that I smelled have now changed to a very grassy hop flavor. I am also tasting some sort of mineral quality. Very modest malt bill that is only mildly wheaty. This has a bitterness that hangs around like im drinking an IPA. This is interesting but not true to style IMHO.
Mouthfeel: Thinner side of medium and very pleasant. Has an almost powdery or chalky feel on the palate. Leaves an oil slick on the back of my tongue.
Drinkability: This beer has to score very high on drinkability because of its full flavor. This offering is a good beer, just not good for a wheat.
Serving type: bottle

4.15/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Served from a 12oz bottle into a LA Teku glass. Bottles 7-18
Appearance- Clear/hazy amber/gold with quick half finger head that left lacing.
Smell- Wheat malts, lemon, apples, grass, pine, pot, green grapes. Very dank and fruity.
Taste- Much of the same earthy grassy hops with light amounts of that apple and grape flavors. Pale wheat finishes with not much lingering flavor.
Mouthfeel- Really, the perfect body. Medium carbonation with a very soft body and light bitterness. Pretty goddamn drinkable.
Overall- All the FFF hoppy beers I've had (with the exception to ZD) have powerful/beautiful noses but lack in flavor a bit. Great beer, but no Zombie dust.
