22 ounce bottle acquired as an extra in a trade with Rbald42, thanks again Ryan, drank last night, reviewed from notes, poured into my Bull and Bush mug, color is golden yellow with orange tint, big 1 1/2 inch soapy white head with some retention and leaving, aroma consists of wheat, citrus, piney hops, herbs, and banana, flavor is full of hoppiness at the beginning, chewy wheat and light citrus in the middle, finish has a large amount of hops too, they are pretty piney, stays bitter and dry even as it warms, chewy and dry mouthfeel, moderatate level of carbonation, medium bodied, could drink a few glasses of this, eight percent is hidden pretty well, can be a little dry at times, one intense wheat beer I must say, interesting and full of Centennial hops, enjoyed this a lot and it is a nice summer beer indeed, would drink again, recommended

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but probably over 3 years old. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of honey, wheat, bread, light caramel, grapefruit, orange, floral, grass, pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with solid strength. Some light oxidation is present, but not bad. Taste of honey, wheat, bread, light caramel, floral, orange, grapefruit, grass, pepper, clove, and earthy yeast spiciness. Good amount of earthy pepper spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, wheat, bread, citrus, floral, grass pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Light oxidation present in the taste as well, but not bad. Very nice balance of malt and hop flavors; with good malt/spiciness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this a very good imperial wheat beer, even with the age. Good balance of malt, hop, and spicy flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
