Pours clouded golden with a foamy white, well-retained head. Patchy lacing sticks down the glass.

The smell is spicy coriander, orange, grapefruit, possibly a hint of lemon, and a wheat tang.

The taste is of sweet tangerine and bitter grapefruit backed by wheat tang and spicy coriander. It's an interesting, flavorful mix that works well. Dry, spicy, sweet and bitter (slightly sour) well-balanced, refreshing finish.

It is creamy smooth. Refreshing and easy-drinking.

Amarillo hops are enough to make it citric juicy but allow a subtle wheat tang and a dash of pepper to come through. A unique, refreshing brew that is complex and well-made! Very enjoyable!

L: Pours straw gold with a slight haze under a 1” rapidly receding off-white foam collar.

S: Spice, citrus, light grains, fruit, orange and grapefruit. The fruit aromas are medium to medium high, the malt aromas are medium to medium low.

T: Begins with spice and light grains developing into a fine balance of spice, fruit, citrus and grapefruit over a malt backbone of light wheat and sweet malt. Has a grapefruit rind bitterness and a lingering fruit bitterness. The hop driven and added fruit flavors are medium to medium high, the malt flavors are medium.

F: Medium to medium light body and medium high carbonation.

O: This is a very drinkable American Wheat ale that is a little more hop forward than most with an interesting balance of flavors.

L - Medium orangish-yellow. Cloudy. Tall white head. Pretty persistent.
S - Hops prominent, but not especially strong.. A little underlying malt sweetness. Bread and grapefruit, maybe something tropical.
T - Hoppier than I thought. Resiny grapefruit mild sweet malt. Unusual spiciness - coriander it would appear.
