Wheat-filled APA with semi-grassy hops, lemongrass and additional citrus. The better APA from Half Acre IMO.

22 oz bomber, no bottled on date but was presumably bottled over the last few days, poured into a Half Acre pint glass.

A- Pours a very hazy golden hay color, topped with a finger of creamy white head, good retention, leaves nice lacing.

S- Very nice fruity hop aroma, some grainy wheat and bready sweetness.

T- Big hops on this one, definitely an "American" wheat beer. Lots of juicy, fruity hops, very tropical, with a persistent bitterness. Caramel sweetness becomes more noticeable towards the finish, with bready wheat flavors.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth creamy feel.

O- A pretty damn tasty beer, it's very hop forward and probably tastes more like an IPA than a Hefeweizen, but is still an awesome beer, if this was available in four-packs it might be the first wheat beer I would actually pick up regularly.

L: A light peach color, great great, some lacing

T: A bready, wheaty, bright, flowery, orange, every so slight funk, sweet honey smell

T: A subdued held back version of the smell, but in a delicate way. The flavor is all there but just light. Not in your face bold flavors which is a nice respite from the typical ridiculously juicy hoppy beers that Half Acre makes (not to say they all are that way)

F: Low carb, very smooth, light feel. Finishes dry

O: This beer is great for pairing with a nice light food dish. The flavors are excellent but not overly obnoxious. Very smooth and well crafted.
