12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled on 11/29/14.

A- Pours a clear golden color with a good amount of white colored head that sticks around awhile.

S- Tons of citrus hops on the smell. I would think it's an IPA.

T- Citrus hops up front along with maybe some banana and clove. The hops really dominate to me and I think it drinks like and IPA.

M- Light bodied, high carbonation, a good food beer.

Can't say I've had any other American Pale Wheats, but GumballHead takes the cake.

I was so excited to try this based on my inability to obtain this locally, and the reviews on BA. It was my favorite hoppy wheat, but didn't live up to the hype imho.

Outstanding, the hops make this beer delicious, with an irresistible aroma and a sweet psychedelic look and feel.
