4.11/5  rDev +8.2%

750ml bottle, just delivered to my store today (7-5-13). I had a sample of this at AC Beerfest, where they had it designated for a VIP area, but since I know the brewery rep and owner I was offered a sample. Now I get to try it in full for myself.
Poured into a Ommegang Game Of Thrones goblet/snifter glass.

AP: Pale gold and straw yellow colour, initial 1" foamy white head settles to about 1/4" with decent lacing on the side of the glass.

AR: Now this is what I missed out on at AC Beerfest only getting a sample. The hops smack your olfactory senses right where they live. I am liking this, a lot. Green dank piney hops, like wet pine cones after a Summer rain. Some grapefruit with biscuit and wheat malts as well. After several more whiffs I also detect some fleshy fruits like passion fruit, tangerine and papaya.

T: Similar to the nose, though the hops are the main focus of this beer and they are well done. In the flavour the hops are more grassy and vegetal with a nice grapefruit kiss. On the aftertaste I get some orange and lemon. The wheat/malt base makes for a good backbone and doesn't get overwhelmed by the hops. It's not exactly balanced as the hops profile wins out, but it doesn't dominate either. Nicely done.
M: Light carbonation, fairly crisp on the tongue, not too dry but somewhat palate cleansing.
OV: I really enjoy this beer. It's solid, not mind blowing, but very nicely done. Now that Flying Fish is in the new bigger brewery, I hope they add this to their rotation even if it's only a couple times a year they bottle/release it. Definitely would grab some every time they brewed it. Good job, Andy, and thanks!

4.33/5  rDev +13.9%

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a relatively large head with an average pour. Not much retention but lacing is nice. Nice pale golden wheat look to it. Really nice looking beer.

Smell: Another hoppy example from Flying Fish, this almost reminds me of a timid Exit 16 on the nose. Still has that big melon/grapefruit/papaya nose that I love with a little more subtlety.

Taste: Exactly what I want from a pale wheat. Hops up front with a subtle hop bitterness. Easy drinking for down the shore. This reminds me of summer. Mild bitterness but a very balanced hop flavor to finish

Overall, I hope they continue to bottle this, I'll be buying it up as much as possible.

3.71/5  rDev -2.4%

- Brewed with experimental hop ADHA 483.

A: Translucent light orange has both a heavy haze and heavy dose of effervesce. A well formed 2+ finger dairy cream colored head is lengthy and stronger then the storm (for all you n.j. folks just as tired of hearing this commercial as i am).

S: The nose was interesting, tropcial, green melon, pear with a hint of soft tangerine tartness. Lightly musky citrus scent with a strong diversity and soft mellowing delivery.

T: Flavor was green melon, sliced pear, passion fruit, with a light muskiness of citrus and a dry sense of tangerine-citrus wheat coming on the close. Semi-dry tropical fruitiness, some yeastiness sneaks in, bubblegum highlights, dry fruit, pineapple, dash of white pepper with a tart musky citrus flowery bite at the beers finish.

M: crisp and lively, good feel of carbonation, body was light-medium, with a mineral feel and a warmth of citrus fruit off the tongue.

O: Overall crisp, refreshing, nice use of experimental hop with a different sense of aroma and flavor other then west coast traits. Definitly worth the price of admission, with % going to to storm relief is always a good cause and reason to drink more. F.U. Sandy is a nice tribute to those affected and nice final word of retribution to those recovering still. Drink up.

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.
