Pours a transparent deep golden color with a copper highlight, active carbonation visible. Tall ivory head falls but maintains a nice lacing on the glass, with solid retention.
Aroma is strongly citrus hop, woody or grassy undertones; smells like it's dry-hopped. very nice.
Flavor is refreshing; slight malt, good citrus hop flavor that's not overpowering; great balance here. the woody and grassy flavors there in the aroma present themselves in the flavor and kind of linger in the aftertaste, with a hint of the bitter on the back and sides of the tongue. Grapefruit and pine flavors hint themselves in as well.
Active carbonation persists, partnering with the crisp flavor for a tingling, refreshing mouthfeel. Highly drinkable, particularly for hot days and nights. Quintessential summer brew, in my opinion.

From a 12oz bottle

Poured a light amber color with a nice white 1-finger head that lingered a wee bit before slightly dissipating. Looks like a very lightly clouded Pale Ale. In fact, it's classified as an American Pale Wheat Ale!

Smells like a hop bomb oddly enough. Pretty much a citrus scent the whole way through.

Tastes great! Big hop bite coming through strongly. Nice malty flavor towards the end. Nice grapefruit like character as well

Feels quite lively on the tongue and slightly chewy. Great carbonation as it jumps around your mouth.

Very drinkable brew. It's got a great hop character with some citrus like subtle flavors coming through. Great for summer, or anytime rather. Probably a fantastic session ale.

It's got the body of a wheat and everything else screams Pale Ale.

Whhha? Pale wheat ale really? but... but I smell hops and its clear! I'm reviewing this as my second one of the night I had one earlier and this time is a little different...palate mighta got jacked!
But this is some nice stuff...like I said before pours a medium clear gold with a little bit a floaties not much though, has white head sticks around for a bit. The carbonation will stick to the sides of the glass a bit. Cool. Smells like grapfruit hops then if you sniff hard enough the clove and wheat smell you were expecting. Taste hops to start with gum bananna clove and to boot some wheat. Pretty nice indeed. (Indeed!) So I like this stuff k, But I will try not to buy much since I will drink it all in one night...and its not local...top notch overall

Like a sweet pale ale. Different and good. Not great for my palate.
