A - Cloudy yellow color with a small white head that fades quick.
S - Sweet cereal, citrus hops, mainly lemon, tropical fruit, bready as it warms.
T - Follows the nose with cereal malts, corn, lemon citrus, with some green bitterness on the back end. Wheat is very present with some graininess. Pineapple and star fruit come out as it warms. Finishes crisp and quite dry.
M - Light to medium body with a semi-full feel. Carbonation is medium and the beer finishes nice and dry.
I've always passed this up but I actually enjoyed this. I could drink this all day. Hoppier than I'd expected and the tropical fruit was a nice surprise.

I purchased this at Wegmans, enjoyed chilled in a mug from the 12oz brown bottle.
The color is deep golden with light haze with thick white cap with fine bead -there is good retention and lace. The smell has a slight citrus aroma with subtle lemony tangy scent with light malt and herbal hop ester. The feel is good with light bitterness and slight sweetness balancing with medium carbonation and semi-dry bitter finish.
The flavor is slightly tangy at first with wheat flavor and mild lemon and herbal hops join with an almost pine-like taste toward the finish as it warms with mild wheat taste carrying through in the background. This is a pretty tasty balanced pale with mild citrus hops and wheat flavor.

3.29/5 rDev -2.9%
Appearance: Cloudy, very light straw color, about the same shade as a Bud Light Lime. Quickly disappearing head, moderate lacing and carbonation.
Smell: Pine, wet grass, mildew, citrus hops.
Taste: Pine, wet grass, citrus and floral hops, caramel.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy.
The Verdict: It’s okay. Nothing exciting, just a drinkable Wheat Pale Ale. I expected more coming from Kona- more flavor, more hops, more something.
