It pours golden and clear with a full white head. It has citrus aroma and spruce. It has citrus flavors with floral, every hoppy and a quality bitter tap on the palate.

I didn't think I'd be a huge fan of this beer since I'm not generally a fan of hoppy brews. But this struck the perfect balance between the hoppiness of a pale ale and the wheat tones. Really great.

Very drinkable delicious Wheat Pale ale, the light hoppy notes mix so well with the wheat flavors.

Very session-able and is always a go to for any sort of get together.

Yellow gold color. Head dissipates quickly. Taste is where its at. Hoppy, piney and earthy. And of course wheaty. Get a apricot aroma. Slight caramel hints. Goes down smooth. Feel the carbonation. A great kick and great beer overall. Accordingly to brewer, it pairs well with Fettuccini Alfredo, Chicken Tikka Masala. i would also think fish and roasted veggies. :-)

Pours pale orange in color. 1/2 finger quickly dissipating head.

Aroma is of big lemony pine needles and a nice hop florelness.

Taste starts with a big burst of citrusy hops and pine. This is followed by a nice fizz of carbonation, then a malt sweetness in the middle of the mouth. The finish is a touch of wheat and moderate amount of hop bitterness.

Overall, this is a very good and easily accessible beer. It really isn't a wheat beer but more of a crisp American IPA. This would go very well with fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese, and a spicy remoulade sauce. It gets a 88/100.

Draft into std pint glass.crystal clear pale gold color. Nice head with medium retention and nice sticky lacing. Beautiful citrus aroma. Delicious with nice malty balance for the forward hops. Minimal lingering bitterness. Really nice. I have had this in bottles many times and not enjoyed it as much as this (apparently fresh) draft.
