4.58/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Hazy, golden body with a giant fluffy marshmallow head. Nearly perfect!

Nose is clean, cut grapefruit. A bit restrained, compared to what I expected, but still very nice.

Flavor is outstanding! Once again, near perfection. Super light, almost non-existent, malt body crowned with a clean, crisp blast of citrus hops. Light sweetness, again I have to reference marshmallows. The hop flavors are mighty and intense, but not really overly bitter. I almost want to break out the advanced hop vocabulary for a technical description, but it's too cold and I'm too tired tonight. Taste is right up there with Heady Topper or Lawson's Double Kiwi.

Mouthfeel is slick, stripping, tart and zesty.

Overall, just a wonderful taste treat. Another top notch hop bomb from the East Coast. Nice work!

To think, I nearly avoided this brew because of the L word (lager) on the label. Glad I didn't let preconceptions guide me.

3.78/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Strong haze on a bright apricot wheat body. Pure white, fine bubbled head has nice retention and awesome lace.

S - Light nose, but what's there is really nice. Lemon pith, parsley, white bread, and old wood tables.

T - Bread crust forward flavor profile with lemon zest and light parsley highlights. Touch of tangerine in the center.

M - Super smooth, slightly slick, medium frame.

O - Nice, smooth, well integrated, and easy drinking. Not sure if it's quite top 250 material though.
