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.

Pours a golden yellow with medium head that lingers, and carbonated more than a soda. Light citrusy aroma with a slight sweetness to it. Definitely Pacific Northwest hops.

Mainly a hoppy flavor, but a bit of wheat as well. Malty aftertaste and it is smooth from beginning to finish. Very good - I'll definitely have this again.
