4.35/5 rDev +3.3%
Pours a nice clear golden color with one finger white head. Good lacing. Smell is citrus up front, much more like an IPA than a wheat. The taste follows the nose - sweet citrus with a very refreshing hefeweizen-like lemony finish. Light bodied and lightly carbonated, very refreshing. Overall an outstanding American wheat, extremely well balanced. Great job FFF!

Poured for a bottle into my OMB tulip. No date found.
A - Poured a nice golden straw color with about a one finger head on top. The head faded slowly leaving a light lacing around the glass.
S - Aroma is not what you would typically expect from an "American pale wheat ale." Not too surprising- it's Three Floyds! I noticed a really nice hop presence; grapefruit, pineapple, mango, pine and some light wheat sweetness.
T - Each sip reveals something different with this beer. The wheat malt hit my tongue right away. A few sips later the hops arrive on the scene. As I finish the beer the tropical hops complete each sip cleanly. The hop notes are quite citrusy and piney. I'm impressed with the rebelliousness of this "wheat" beer.
M - Mouthfeel is light, very nicely done for a pale wheat, with a great hop finish. I would like there to be a bit more wheatiness to it.
O - I really enjoyed this one. Truth be told, it was actually difficult not to gulp this one down. Another fantastic, truly unique beer for Three Floyds.

Bought from FFF brewpub in IN. Interesting. Citrus-y. Mouthfeel is super light but then it takes you on a ride for an uncommon experience. Can't place the aftertaste. Almost dries out your mouth but has a dry fruity follow-up. It's tough to know if I would peg this as a wheat without knowing it was such.
Can't wait to bring more back.
