On tap at the brewery (Class 1 tap). Poured into a nonic pint.

A- A nice, cloudy golden body. It came with a thin white head that left nice stick on the glass.

S- fairly typical wheat characteristics with a bit of an extra grassy aroma.

T- A lot hoppier than the arms would let on. A good, sweet, wheaty backbone for sure, but a solid dose of spicy hops, especially in the finish.

M- Medium-full body for the style. Somewhere between grainy and creamy. Fairly clean and dry.

O- While well within the normal range for the style, it pushes more hops than most. Stays refreshing and drinkable. At 6.6% ABV, it isn't something to chug on a warm summer's day. I'd order it again.
