3.88/5 rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25
a. straw with a touch of orange. not completly clear. a big, rocky white head that settles to a respectable layer of little bubbles and leave nice splotches of lacing on the glass.
s. cereal grains, oranges, and lemons.
t: a little sweet at first, turning into a grass and husk flavor, a bit of wheat twang leading into sweet orange/lemon and a touch of bitterness from the hops.
m. nothing too great here, medium body and level of carbonation.
o. a pretty nice mix of wheat and hops here. would drink this regularly given it was available in my area and decently priced. the only change i would like would to be to tone down the sweetness a touch. a big thumbs up to the wife for picking this out of the blue for me on a trip to missouri based on the fact she knows i like wheat beers and ipas/hops.

3.55/5 rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: straw yellow to a golden yellow color. huge 2-3 finger foamy white head that fades a little too quickly but leaves a nice strong lacing behind. completely cloudy and opaque.
Smell: very sweet wheaty smell, a touch of bubblegum, the smell is quite hoppy, lots of citrus, some earthiness and a little pine.
Taste: opens up with lots of initial sweetness, lots from wheat, some caramel malts and some bubblegum. Hops come in at the end but are completely overwhelmed by the sweet malts. some citrus, earth and pine again.
Mouthfeel: nice and light, not quite as refreshing as i'd like do to the overpowering sweetness
Overall: the hoppiness worked very well in the aroma, but falls off just a little too much in the taste. If that balance worked out this would be a very nice wheat beer.
