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.
