I'll go ahead and do the hack thing and write about my sandy experience. I can not complain all that much as I only lost power for a week but the most surreal thing that was most likely under reported (and totally surreal) was the gas lines... forget cars (like setting my alarm for 3am to go and get gas)... the human gas lines... hundreds deep holding gas cans and cars strewn all over the damn place on the parkway and somewhat on the turnpike, it was something I will never forget aside of course from all the physical/flood damage not to far from me and locally. anyway, to the beer, I hope it knocks my power out...

eyes...
2 full fingers of tide hitting the beach sounding foam, craggy rock like foam formations, super clear straw color with just a hint of orange, pretty good streams of carbonation (maybe only a cat 2 in that department), the head fizzles out pretty quickly, not very inspiring here

nose...
an interesting mix of brown herbal euro type hop with strong tropical notes, subtle hints of pine are scurrying around in there as well, there is also a lemony effervescence present, nice

taste etc...
fruity with a lemony finish, mild bittering with a smooth finish, delightful carbonation (really keeps it light and easy drinking), medium body that satisfies but does not weigh you down, not delicious but devilishly tasty, it has just enough of everything, a great brew to sit outside on the deck on an august night... er, like tonight! the ABV has a nice little kick also, this does sort of remind me of exit 16 a little, but that is not a bad thing at all, nice brew!

verdict?
wheat pale ale ? ... to me this is like a pale ale with that nice crisp refreshing bite of a wheat without the wheat flavor, it retains the hop character of an APA but has more of a wheat pop, a nice combo, well played

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle: Poured a dirty golden color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of nice wheat malt with some grassy hops notes and some light bubble-gum notes. Taste is dominated by really nice wheat malt with some light grassy hoppy notes with some light bubble-gum notes. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Very enjoyable wheat ale – brewer should not keep this one as a one-off.
