Pours a very nice cloudy, golden color. There is small carbonation, but constant and a thin white head stays on top of the beer throughout the drink.
Smell has a good wheat base with a very strong lemon smell to it. Almost like a radler.
Taste is much stronger on the hop tastes than the smell. The good wheat base persists, but a very nice hop taste that is earthy and lemony.
Mouthfeel is very nice. Smooth, but a bit of a crisp, refreshing bite.
Drinkability is good on this beer. Smooth drink has nice balanced tastes, but also a refreshing crispness. As usual, a great beer from Jackie O's.

Received in a pint glass. I enjoy gettting one of the series every time I go to JO's. The beers themselves are forgettable, but it allows me to do some research into hop profiles without doing any of the work myself.

3.5 A: Golden wheat color. Came without a head.

3.5 S: Pine and grapefruit dominate. Flowery with a light orange citrus.

2.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Moderate bitterness. Pine and grapefruit, flowers, and mild citrus. Lacking any maltiness, which I guess is the point.

2.5 M: Light body. Moderate carbonation. Not much creaminess.

2.5 D: It is what it is.

Served on tap into a shaker glass at the brewpub

A- Poured a very light pale straw color, it looked like bud light or nati light in color. It did have a frothy head that left lots of chunky lace though.

S- Almost no aroma, very light grapefruit

T- Some grapefruit and pine notes especially during the first 2 or 3 oz., later on on some apple and lemon type flavors. Big wet cardboard taste too. No malt at all and very watery in flavor. The longer I drank this the more watery, less hoppy, and more flavorless this became. It started to taste like a very old pale ale or IPA.

M- Very watery, lighter mouthfeel, pretty low carbonation

O- I guess I was expecting a singe hop IPA, but I really think this beer had no malt at all. The lack of malt would have been okay if the hop flavors stayed throughout the beer and was less watery.
