3.68/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A- 3.5 This pours a very clear yellow-gold with a fluffy white head. The head reduces to a thin, uniform layer throughout. There's moderately sticky lacing.
S- 3 The aroma of the Hop Sun is a bit lemon-heavy for me. In fact, it is mostly all that I detect. There's just a hint of wheat.
T- 4 I'm happily surprised at the taste of this one after just looking at and smelling it... There's a nice grapefruit / hop citrus up front that is complimented well by a grainy wheat to finish.
M- 4 This is fitting of the style; slightly heavier than light in body with a good carbonation. It finishes a little dry.
D- 3.5 Though I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of this brew, I was relatively unimpressed overall. I could swig a couple, maybe, but I don't know that I'd seek it out again. It's probably more of a style issue than anything for me because I've really liked all of the other Southern Tier brews I've had at this point. Not bad, not great... I suppose it's worth a chance if you're a fan of wheats.
