22oz bomber: hazy golden delicious apple color topped with a bright white creamy layer of foam. head dissipates rather rapidly to nothing. sugary sweet citric hop aroma and not much else. light to medium bodied with a nice crisp level of carbonation. soft bubblegum and sugar-coated hop cone flavor. like dreadnaught in the juicy hop flavor department, minus all the bitterness. seems wheat beer like in texture only, finsishes rather crisp and amazingly somewhat dry. certainly unique...i tend to like originals, and i tend to like originals done well even more. this is a fantastic beer that isn't constrained to a specific style. great summertime drinking...i only wish it were cheaper. $8 for 22oz....ouch.

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.
