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.

35 IBU

The beer pours a clear straw golden in color with two finger white head that doesn't last too long. I'm used to my wheat beers being a little hazy with fluffy white heads, so this seems a bit off, but the tiny little bubbles screaming up the side of the glass make up for it. The nose is full of beautiful amarillo hops that are floral and sweet (tangerines and bright fruit)! The flavor is everything I could have hoped for! Sweet wheat malt with bright grassy floral hops. The body is nice and light with solid carbonation.

This is a fantastic beer, and I'm ashamed that it took me this long to get my hands on some. I sure wish Three Floyds would distribute to PA. I'm going to have to get tons more of this in trades. I love the combination of wheat and boat loads of hops.
