-Pours a nice clear amber with a thick white head
-pine on the nose with a citrus/orange hint
-bright and crisp. pine comes through in the taste, found that it finished rich and complex with just a slight citrus "bite"
-very full, rich feel to it
-one of my favorite beers ... but I confess to being a bit of a "homer" when it comes to NorCal beers

12 oz. bottle
no date but it's fresh
clear amber and a nice white head
good lacing as I empty
notes of pine, floral
good balance and not bitter.
I like the mouthfeel because it's chewy, but clean
alcohol doesn't hit until the third one !
so be careful.enjoy

Wow, wasn't expecting that at all. Very good; gets even better as you drink it. Has a sweetish kick but yet doesn't let the sweet overpower the ale. Holycow did just one get me buzzing.

I really dislike hefeweizens, and wheat beers generally. Something in that style has to be as mainstream as a Blue Moon or a Shock Top for it to not be a drain pour.

So I can't believe I like this beer. I like it a lot. It has all the bitterness of a good Cali IPA, with a good bready balance, and none of that ick that ruins most wheat beers that people tell me are supposed to be "refreshing."

Well this is refreshing--and delicious.

Look: gold with a thin white head
Smell: Floral, citrus, and pine
Taste: floral, citrus at first, then a hint of wheat at the end
Feel: high carbonation, medium body
Overall: I find this beer more like an ipa due to the amount of hops, that being said if it was categorized as an ipa I would have liked it more. Would I buy again? Yes, I have bought this before.
