Aroma really has a nice tropical, citrusy smell to it....a hint of sweetness there as well. Smells like an IPA to be quite honest.
Taste has a really nice citrusy flavor to it, but not overly bitter. It's a punch in the mouth for sure, but in a good way. It has a great soft, semi-sweet wheat character to it on the finish that really makes this a beer of two phases....brilliantly citrusy, then sweet and full of wheat. Yum. A great example of a hoppy wheat beer.

A: Light golden with a liarge bright white head and a ton of carbonation coming up from the bottom.
S: Fresh pine, orange and grapefruit biting at the edges. A little pineapple and mango sweetness with that classic wheat funk coming near the end.
T: The wheat hits the front of your tongue right away. pine follows it before a citrus explosion on the middle mouth. Puckering lemon, oranges and grapefruit. the finish is quick and semi dry. a hint of herbs.
M: Very refreshing and light. very carbonated.
O: Very impressed here. THis is a beer that gets better every time i have it. You can session this or just drink one slowly. good play between the hop and the wheat. /93

Appearance - Golden orange color with a thick head that dissipates quickly.
Smell - Strong scents of citrus. Smooth notes of grapefruit and orange.
Taste - Strong, hoppy IPA qualities mixed with a wheat ale. The punch of citrus throughout really adds to this beer and makes it unique.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Great hop finish. Easy to drink... a great summer beer.
Overall - This is one of my favorite beers, and has turned into a "daily drinker" that I try to always keep in the fridge. Yet another incredible beer from Three Floyds.

Pours an amber golden, slightly hazy, with a fine white head that retains indefinitely at a couple millimeters of thickness.
Smells of fresh pine and sweet, citrusy grapefruit hops.
Piney floral hop flavor followed by some grapefruit citrus and a hint of honey accompanied with a dry malty finish.
Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the tip of the tongue.
A pretty stellar ale, great smell and very good flavor. Very impressive and enjoyable. Definitely worth trying.

Got a pint at the brewpub a few weeks ago. This is from notes.
Clear light orange, wispy shortlived head drapes the pint glass in a layer of foam. Huge citrus and wheat crispness in the in the nose. Delicate grapefruit and lime in the first sip. Building bitterness and sweet, crisp malt meld together flawlessly. Lemon rind shows with warmth. Light mouthfeel with spritz y effervescence. The finish is moderately bitter and very long lasting.
This is the best American wheat beer Ive ever had. So much sumptuous malt and hop flavor, with a pronounced hoppiness. Incredible stuff. Stupidly quaffable and a must try before you die beer for any craft beer lover.
