750ml growler courtesy of Cam...what a nice surprise. Thanks as always buddy!

A lightly hazed yellow into a taster glass multiple pours over. Thin skim and a summer's blanket of lacing...she looks the part.

Light dough, peaches, and a splash of tropicality. Not overly vibrant or bright, but what's here is nice.

Starts full and juicy on the front of the tongue. Crackers, wheat, and crushed black pepper join the orange-tangerine smack along the middle. The finish is a rindy bitterness that's firm but kept in check.

Nice weight and feel on the tongue with an alternating juiciness and bitterness that never feels light or let's you down.

I drained this growler over the course of a late afternoon while dicking around the house. While I never found myself in love with it, I sure didn't tire of it either. I saw another review comparing this to Gumballhead. No fucking way....that beer is relatively gross...this is not.

Growler picked up a week ago and held up well thankfully.

Huge foamy 2 finger head, head fades semi slowly, mostly clear slight haze golden orange yellow Color.

Nose brings fresh hops, citrus and light tropical fruit, hint pineapple, nice orange rind and tangerine, little candied orange peel, light wheat like floral grainy aromas with hint of gumball like ester.

Taste nice light wheat character, light and little toasty, hint cracker malt, then into lots of hops, light tropical fruit, little citrus, orange peel, tangerine, etc. Little gumball like ester fruit, juicy tangerine and little pear, fair bitterness. Finish is bitter, lingering citrus and fruit, and stone fruit, little wheat.

Mouth is med bod, nice carb.

Overall a very nice beer, reminds me a lot of Gumball Head from Three Floyds, quite a tasty beer and wish I could get more beers from these guys easily. This will be a definite stop on my way by from now on.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, orange-yellow coloring with a filmy, light, bubbly, tall, white head that has a great cling as you drink. Nose of lemon and clove, with a hops bitterness and bready notes. Subtle. Flavors of toasted grain forward, with a solid, but balanced, hop undertone providing a grassy, peppered, resiny bolt. Great flavors, and very well blended/balanced. Smooth, mid-bodied transitioning into a light, crisp finish. Aftertaste of grains and bitter, with a blend of citrus. Very easy to drink, this one could be trouble. Wow!

Thanks to Jeff for getting the growler. Pours a subdued, murky golden color with a super-foamy white head that creams up real nice before slowly slipping downward where it lasts forever as a chunky collar at the edges. Pretty nice looking for a the style, or even beer in general; gotta love the foamy head and the no-shame, unfiltered body.

An IPA made with wheat and hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo hops. My mouth is already watering. I'm a big fan of Amarillo hops... Simcoe can be a little more fickle, typically when it's the solitary hop, but when coupled with something like Amarillo, magic can happen. The nose is a good indication of this harmony; peppery, piney, and leafy notes (thanks, Simcoe) all around with a juicy, orange fruitiness (thanks, Amarillo) played out over a soft, wheat filled background.

The initial sip makes the wheat more noticeable than the nose did, which is definitely good to see, as there's gotta be something there to balance these pungent hops. Light ash with a solid dose of pine and resin... kind of herbal-y in the later stages, as the pine dips a bit into the background. The oranges are beaming at the edges, gushing and tantalizing the palate and providing a beautiful counterpoint to the raw hoppage.

Some grapefruit rind and other mild fruits can be found if you dig, but the orange/tangerine notes are the most notable and display themselves like a desperate hooker whose rent was due last week. Thin-medium body; I think it feels a little "bigger" than it is from the wheat and yeast, both soft and crisp on the mouth feel at the same time. Easy to drink, with a very, very slightly mouth-coating, resinous finish.

First Blue Lobster brew, and I'm already pretty impressed. Seems like it's hard to go wrong with a combo like Simcoe and Amarillo, but I've seen crazier things happen. Great execution and a great melting of style guidelines (Is this a pale wheat ale or an IPA?) while keeping everything balanced nicely. Drinkability like crazy, this stuff is super delicious.
