Appearance: Typical hazy looks are present in this beer. There is no lacing left on the glass when you drink it, and there is a quarter finger of head which had excellent retention. The color did look a little bit pissy, but that may have just been poor lighting.
Smell: Overwhelmingly citrus almost to a point of too much (but not too much). I pick up lots of orange peel and mango. A little bitter hop smell is there, but not the dominant smell for sure. The smells seem to be just the citrus which disappoints me because I was looking for more scents to be happening.
Taste: This brew is super sweet and tasty. I did not get the awful metallic flavors that usually come along with wheat ales and I did not get the rough bitterness that comes along with hoppy beers. This thing was in a category all by itself. There was even a bit of a sour finish which totally got me psyched. The taste was balanced, strong, and had enough going on to keep me interested throughout the entire glass.
Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean due to the light body and moderate carbonation. Great for the beer that was given.
OverallL A fantastic beer that really caught me by surprise. I am definitely going to recommend to others who can;t seem to find a hoppy beer that they like.
