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.
