12 oz bottle poured clear pale golden with a decent head. Tasted like this one may have been born quite a while back, as the aroma of hops was nearly non-existent. The malty middle overwhelmed. I will not buy this bottle again, however I would try a draft just to see how a fresh one compares.

A- Amber color, rich and bright orange.

S- The best thing about this beer. The strongest notes are peach and apricot; hints of citrus.

T- What taste? It was hoppy and had a bitter finish. Taste was disappointing and simple in light of the nice aroma.

M- Typical of a light ale. Fizzy and thin.

O- This beer was a let down in terms of big anticipation with much less pay-off. The bouquet was very promising, but none of the flavors that were suggested in the aroma played out on the palate. The flavor disappeared quickly after swallowing.

I am severely confused. What am I drinking here exactly? Yes, wheat. Dirty tasting, awful smelling wheat. Apparently also hops, although cleverly hidden (that was not a compliment).
The highlight here is clearly the label.
It's hard to find much complexity in this, so there is not much reason you should ever have it, unless you always wanted to get drunk on flavoured water.

A- A dense golden/honey color. A nice spongy two finger head with great lacing to the end.

S- Overpowering citrus smell, almost like household cleaner. Extreme hoppy smell

T- A punch in the face of citrus and hops

M- Very dry, the hops linger in the aftertaste. Lysol...

D- Found this to be hard to finish, not usually my MO. Wouldn't have it again

I don't know which types of hops are used in this one, but they are the kinds that I'm not found of.
