A: This beer really isn't much to look at, a clear light yellow with a bit of a white head. Just looking at it, it could be a Bud Light for all I know.
S: WHOA! I was not expecting that at all. I stuck my nose in the glass and got a burst of fresh citrusy hops! There are definitely some underlying wheat-beer-type notes, but hops are first and foremost and it smells great.
T: I gotta say, I'm pretty impressed here - it's light and refreshing and yet deliciously hoppy at the same time. It's not often that a beer can straddle those two things at the same time. If I didn't know better, I'd think I was drinking an IPA - citrusy hops are really the predominant flavor, and it's got a bit of that grassy/wheat flavor on the back end.
M: The light body on this is what seems to set it apart from most other beers this hoppy, making it easy to drink. Finish is somewhat dry.
O: This beer isn't quite what I expected at all, but it was a great surprise and I can see why people go crazy over it. It's a fantastic summer beer that packs a ton of flavor.
