On tap at Capitol Beer and Tap Room in Sacramento, CA

Appearance - A clear, slightly reddish copper, served up with an off-white, finger width head. Lacing clings nicely in spots.

Smell - Mellow orange, hints of pine. Moderate wheat.

Taste - Hops are spicy and with moderate citrus notes. Malt backbone comes across with clean, wheat bread-like quality. Hops turn piney near the aftertaste, before a cleanly fading finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with fair, somewhat lively carbonation. Smooth and drinkable, goes down quite nicely.

Overall - Definitely not your typical hop bomb, instead allowing the hops to add a nice dimension and complementary kick to the malt profile which, unless my taste buds were deceiving me, included a healthy amount of wheat. Nice beer overall, I really enjoyed it.
