Looks quite nice with a big foam on the clear yellow brew. Plenty of spritz in the mouth. Smell is rather acidic and not at all hoppy. The foam even has good retention. Surprisingly thin body with an unpleasant oiliness.

Flavor is an immediate eye-opener. There is some sweetness, which is more like batrley malt than a wheat, and then too much acidity. There is plenty of citrus all right, but it's distinctly lemony orange juice and grapefruit juice. Aftertaste is a long, harsh bitter burn. It doesn't taste like hops.

I would be curious to try this on tap, but I would stay away from the bottles. It's on their current list of beers so it must not always be this awful. It doesn't quite tast infected, but it's an odd and undrinkable citrus acidity. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.

Cloudy amber colored ale with a tall puffy white colored head.

Smells sweet and malt with an earthy aroma. Scent of cedar wood plank. Mild perfume of flowers.

Starts out mildly sweet with a moderate level of bitterness. Tastes a little floral with some grapefruit rind.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall less than I expected.

A: Clear when poured from the tap (despite other reports if haze). Medium light carbonation. Little to no head. Light straw color.

S: Fruity. Orange and may be strawberry. Wheat and white flour.

T: Light with citrus. Orange is a heavy player with grapefruit. Fair amount of bittering but nowhere near overpowering. Mild pine flavor from the hops.

M: Thin and very smooth. I would have taken this for more of a summer beer. Little green grass aftertaste from the hops. Refreshing. Was quenching with some spicy food but got a bit washed out in flavor department.

O: Very nice. Nothing too over the top. Just an easy going lighter ipa. I like the grapefruit and slightly sweet orange flavored hops as opposed to the dry hop varieties. Would be good on a warm summer afternoon.
