Served in a series of 4 oz taster glasses.

No head, but there was some spots of lace. Quite cloudy; golden color.

Notable hop aroma, which is difficult given the glass.

Nicely balanced. The malt is from lighter grains but doesn't have the far-too-commonplace grainy flavor. The hop is stronger than I would expect from the style. Although there is wheat in the brew, I couldn't detect it. Very dry aftertaste, but the hop becomes prominent over the long lingering time. The only distraction, for me, is the thin body and high level of carbonation.
