On tap, pours a clear light gold. Dense head leaves thick lacing. Smell and taste are pretty classic West Coast IPA—citrus and pine. Nice bitterness. Really good beer.

Nice clear, dark golden color with a healthy one-finger head that lingers and has nice lacing. Gentle, hoppy notes on the nose with slight floral hints and maybe a little bit of melon. Taste is very well balanced between the hops and the malt. Nothing really jumps out at me on the front palate, but it has a nice, smooth, malty finish.

The color is orange and a very little haze. The smell is floral hops and little grainy.
The taste is a little bitter and has a hoppy citric flavor. The body is medium.
I like it but maybe would add a little more dry hop.

L: Clear yellow with hints of orange and very little head with very little lacing on the glass.

S: Not a very strong aroma, a little wheat and grain, some perfumey floral hops, but I don't get much besides that.

T: Sweet malt, and a little sweet fruit, that is balanced out by a strong piney and floral bitterness.

F: Medium to fuller body and creamy smooth carbonation

O: While the aroma isn't very strong, this beer reminds me a lot more of an IPA than a wheat beer.
