Notes/Commercial Description:
The Two Roads interpretation of this emerging beer style naturally takes a road less traveled. Unlike other versions, ours employs an American ale yeast and no spices. The result is a soft wheat backdrop that accentuates the Pacific Northwest hop character.

12oz can: this one pours a cloudy, straw yellow color. There was a bit of a frothy white head that left some lacing. The nose is decent, even though a little subdued. Citrus and wheat are the main notes. A slight spiciness. The taste is good. Just a bit of a citrus hop bite, with a little wheat in the background. Slightly spicy and peppery. A nice beer!

I bought a bottle of Honeyspot Road on a whim as it is not one of my normal drinking styles. Naturally, it made its way to the back of the fridge and sat for a bit before I popped it open to complete the review. It poured with a pale yellow color with a generous, foamy head. I first got the smell of fresh citrus as well as faint banana and clove. As I tipped it back I got a brief rush of hoppy notes that were quickly lifted by a yeasty finish. I'm not sure if it is because I didn't drink it at the peak of its freshness but I experienced much more of the traditional wheat-beer characteristics than other reviewer. It even gave me a mouthfeel that can only be described as "doughy". All in all this beer was serviceable and quelled my craft craving in a pinch. I won't run back to the store for more of this one but it was a solid offering that gets average marks from me.
