American Pale Wheat Ale |  5.60% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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.

Appearance - golden orange color that pour a crisp head that left my pour quickly.

Smell - grapefruit and citrus upfront with some malt wheat flavors on the back end

Taste - mildy bitter and easy to drink, but missing a punch of something just a light hoppy beer for me

Mouthfeel - extremely easy to drink, crisp, leaves a slight bitter flavor on your tongue

Overall - great beer to have a few of and easy to drink. Not the best wheat/ pale I have had.
