3.5/5 rDev -16.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
12oz bottle, second from blind bif 6, thanks to Hophead101.
A: almost clear yellow, slightest of haze, light but not bmc levels. thin white head that is quick to fade. 4.0
S: fruity, lemon, citrus, mango, honey, low on malts in general but nicely fruity hops. 4.0
T: hoppy bitterness at first, grapefruit, some toasted or wheat malt that doesn't sit well on the aftertaste. no honey that was in the smell, and not much else on other malts. the nice hop aromas don't translate into flavor, except for the lemons. wish it were more fruity, a hint of pine on the breath afterwards. 3.0
M: light mouthfeel, foamy and easy drinking. 3.5
O: a pale ale of some sort i'm guessing, nicely done overall, i like fruity hops and the easy drinking. 4.0
Reveal: FFF Gumballhead. Oof, I just had this a couple of days ago and didn't recognize it at all. Also whiffed on the amarillo. Once again, this bif does it's job and makes me reassess what I thought would be an instantly recognizeable beer.

4.03/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
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.
