thanks merc for sharing.
the beer pours a straw yellow with a wispy white head that fades quickly. the nose is slightly musty with some citrus and mango that doesn't pop like I'd expected. the beer drinks like a champ with a healthy amount of juicy citrus fruit, just like I expected, and some a modest malty backbone. the mouthfeel is sweet and juicy with a semi-dry finish. I'd love to try this beer fresh, but its held up pretty well.

This beer is a very refreshing lighter beer with a distinct hop smell and flavor. It is golden yellow with a white that has good retention (most likely from the wheat in the beer). It is very aromatic for a light beer and has a floral and citrusy smell. The first taste will tell you that it is highly hopped, but what makes this beer so good is that they are late addition hops. This is not an overly bitter beer and the majority of the hop is in the smell and flavor. It finishes cleanly and is best served by the pitcher. Great beer to try!
