4.34/5 rDev +3.1%
Poured from tap at the brew pub. Golden hazey yellow...nice.
Big sweet citrus hop aroma...lemony and fresh. taste is wheaty fresh citrus hop...so fing nice. Its so smooth its insane. The hops are balanced perfectly and not over bitter but instead makes a superb refreshing brew. I like it better that Sumpin Sumpin..its more smooth and crisp..but Sumpin has like 2 additional points on the abv scale...
flavor and mouthful wise, id take this brew all day.

4.4/5 rDev +4.5%
Appearance ranges from yellow to golden. Beautiful head. Tons of percolating bubbles.
Nose is filled with sweet, fresh hops. You can smell the big league chew. Light spice and lemon zest.
Taste is spicy hops. Coriander and lemon candy. Cashew finish.
Mouthfeel is full-bodied and bold. Medium carbonation. Creamy.
Overall, this is wonderful. A vibrant and unique approach to a wheat beer.

4.18/5 rDev -0.7%
This pale pours as most do, with a rich golden haze and topped with a thick (and lovely) white head. A moderate amount of lacing is present and carbonation is light.
The aroma here is incredible! A sweet bouquet of citrus - pineapple, grapefruit and a bit mango provide a sweet counter to the presence of piney hops and wheat.
This is a pleasant beer that sports a lot of character. A sweetness greets you with plenty of tropical fruits, especially pineapple and coconut. It washes away with plenty of earthy grains and hops and finishes with plenty of grapefruit.
It's easy to drink despite having a surprisingly sharp bitterness and a bit of burn that would lead you to believe it has a high ABV - but it doesn't. It's only 5.6%. That said, it's a refreshingly light-bodied beer that is loaded with carbonation.
A buddy was gracious enough to grab some of this highly recommended beer on his way back from Chicago. It is a great beer and deserves most of the praise it receives. Grab this one if you see it!
