look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.
A real nice glowing lemon yellow, opaque with great hues of clear green towards the bottom. Head billows a real super shampoo white, with big retention and huge clumping lacing. Lots of stuck chunks, minimal rising carbonation, but one real nice looking beer.
Nose is subtle and a bit small. Mild floral sense of hop, light faint grass. A little bit of burnt phenol plastic quality though.
Palate hits with a little bit of wetness, not much of a chewy what like density. Slightly grainy finish, but there's a nice sense of crisp hop feel here on the swallow. Clean, a little hint of density. Muted lemon and citrus, but also with a bit of flat soda tasting quality.
Overall not bad, but not seeing where this hoppy angle is suppose to come in. Decent brew, but I think I prefer the regular wheat than this.

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.
