look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A slightly hazy gold with a soapy head. Nice lacing as well.

S: Big citrus and pine notes, resin, onion/garlic and some fruitiness. Tart wheat, and a light touch of sweet, bready malt. Neutral yeast.

T/M: Nice bitterness up front, followed by a sulfate bite and a big citrusy/pine hop flavor, with a touch of oniony flavor. Wheat malt gives this one a nice tartness as well as a very smooth and light body, resulting in insane drinkability. The barley malt is present as well, giving some needed sweetness in the back to balance the tartness and sulfate astringency.

Overall, a very hoppy pale wheat ale, just what you want from your west coast hop gurus. The wheat malt adds a nice complexity, and certainly makes it drinkable, but I kind of wish they went with all barley malt, the tartness gets in the way of the hop character a tad. Still, a very minor gripe for a beer I buy with great frequency, especially during the hot summer days.
