4.16/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish amber with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head which settles into a patchy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus, grass, biscuit, and wheat. Upfront scent of hops with juicy citrus hints of grapefruit, orange, lemon zest, and pineapple. Earthy and grassy hop hints. Wheat and toasted malt with hints of biscuit, caramel, grains, and yeast. A kind of odd but good smell.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely juicy and earthy hop forward taste with notes of citrus, grass, and wheat malt. Juicy presence of citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, and pineapple. Earthy notes of pine and grass. Wheat and toasty malt notes of caramel, biscuit, grains, and yeast. A pretty solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, slightly chewy, and smooth.

Overall: A pretty unique and solid twist on a wheat beer. Good juicy hops with a solid toasty malt backing.

More alley than Aristocat. A marketable beer but so are thousands of others.

A - Clear deep red/amber color. Nice 2 finger head white in color that was retained for a decent length of time. 4/5

S - Very heavy on the grapefruit. Very hoppy which fit the given description of the beer. Slight hint of wheaty graininess. 4/5

T - Tasted like it smelled. Very heavy on grapefruit and tropical flavors. Indistinguishable from many Pale Ales that I have had before so I did not really get the wheat. 3.5/5

M - Wheat shows up here nicely. Very smooth. Nice wet finish. 4.25/5

O - Good offering. Really very simple in it's tasting profile but a nice execution of brewing. Not what I expected but would order again. 3.75/5

12 oz can poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance
Mahogany brown with a 1/2 finger of head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Dank greens, root beer, chicory, and lemon / lime.

Taste
Light tasting. Some dank greens and papaya. Very light candy sugar backbone. Light notes of lemon / lime, chicory, and root beer.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, balanced, and refreshing.

Overall
Certainly has a unique flavor profile and goes down easy. Not too shabby.
