Review input from notes
Hazy orange colored body. Creamy two and a half finger white head is set atop. The head works its way back slowly leaving spotty but thick lacing stuck to the glass.
Hop forward aroma. Assertive tropical fruit backed by pleasant citrus and soft floral aroma. Wheat malt backs and balances the hops. Less of a grainy aroma than many American Pale Wheats, there is a rather pleasant sweetness.
The hops are allowed to take center stage upfront. Sweet pineapple flavor leads followed by subtle grapefruit and a general citrus sweetness. The bitterness is rather low, though there is enough to provide balance. Soft malt sweetness rounds out behind. The soft wheat provides a nearly perfect combination for the fruity hop flavor.
The bodied falls on the lighter side of medium. Fairly crisp carbonation. Moderate but refreshing finish.
Gumballhead is a fantastic beer. While it is not one I reach for often when it is available to me, I also enjoy it when I do. Great warm weather beer but then again I would not be opposed to enjoying a few in the comfort of my home while watching the snow fly. Very drinkable, easy to enjoy.
