4.19/5  rDev +10%

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy dark amber topped off by a thick, slightly off white head that rose about three fingers tall.

Smell: The scent was reminiscent of carmel and toasted nuts, but with a hint of gain sweetness as well.

Taste: Quite impressive. There's a very good balance of the sharpness characteristic of wheat beers and a very acidic citrus flavor backing up the hops. Excellent contrast and complexity.

Mouthfeel: Thicker than what I was expecting from a wheat beer. It coats the mouth and tongue and lingers for a while. Amazing.

Overall: Very, very good. Thick mouthfeel, which I love, and a very citrusy, hoppy backbone offset with a luscious caramel sweetness. This is just a wonderful beer.

12 oz can. "swirl before 03/29/14" printed on the bottom.

Pour is dark almond amber, darker and loose khaki head, stays nicely initially. The goes to a thicker film, nice low sheeting and respectable high ringed lace and lower strands.

Spicy hop nose. Fragrant, floral and citric are adjectives that come to mind.

Tasty dark n hoppy wheat ale. A style I'd love to see other brewers take a stab at. Notes here of more citric hops, some tropical fruityness and some dark wheaty malts. Moderate bite tot he hops in the finish and a nice smooth smooth finish with malts smoothing things out. Nicely done

Appearance: Foam is just ok. Lacing is just good. The color is amazing. Solid nut brown when you pour, but it vacillates between murky orange and translucent red when held up to light. Incredibly unique. The foam and lacing are the only thing preventing me from giving it the rare perfect 5.

Smell: Resiny pine. Faint citrus in the background. Very festive.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Very subtle cedar flavors and quite a bit of yeast. Fairly malty, but a little too bland for my liking. Faint lemon and orange combined with some pepper in the background. Nice medium-bodied and yeasty mouthfeel.

Overall: Flavor is lacking, but I appreciate this hybrid hoppy-wheat beer.
