A: Golden with a bit of haze. Fluffy, big-bubbled, slightly rocky, white head. Not much for retention, but leaves a few splotches of lace.

S: Citrus hops – soft grapefruit & tangerine. Light crystal malt sweetness and some faint wheat. Not a huge variety going on, but very okay for strength.

T: Perhaps more pale ale than wheat. Solid malt backbone with pale perhaps just a step ahead of doughy, somewhat generic & clean wheat. Fair bit of bitterness with a Cascade & Centennial hop character of grapefruit and orange/tangerine. More fruit than rind. Underlying light malty sweetness enhances fruit perception. Not all that complex, but robust and tasty with loads of nice character.

M: Medium body with expansive & mouth-filling carbonation. Fairly quenching & refreshing. Good feel for its abv & style.

D: A nice hoppy pale wheat ale. A tad shy on the wheat part, but it makes up for it with the hops. Tasty and drinkable. A very stand up offering for the hotter summer months, but okay any time. (1,005 characters)

A-Clear yellow-orange, not much carbonation, two finger head that tries to leave behind some lacing, but can not.

S-Some citrus and grapefruit. Some grass and wheat as well.

T-Nice blend of wheat with citrus and grassy hops. Mild bitterness. However as it warms the beer starts to go downhill.

M-Light in body and highly carbonated.

O-A good beer but as it warms the flavors do not mesh as well, which is the main fault I have with this beer. (446 characters)

Had this a couple of times on my camping trip to Lake George.

Straight from the bottle but also poured sometimes into a plastic cup (hey, it's camping!).

Appearance: An orange body with a thick and insistent head.

Smell: Citrus hops with some mild wheat.

Taste: The hops really hit me not in a bitter way (though there is some of that) but with a really good orange/tangerine flavor. Some good tasting here.

Mouthfeel: Active carbonation and a strong, balanced body.

Overall: Definitely worth checking out. This really surprised me and packs a good flavorful punch. (571 characters)
