Pours a bright gold with amber glints and tons of streams of fine carbonation. The frothy 2 finger head lasts for the whole glass and drapes it in foam. Delicate orange, lemon, floral notes in the nose. The taste is hoppy with a distinct orange character. Grapefruit and some aspirin in the back. A bit of tart, clean wheat maltiness provides some balance. The mouthfeel is light bodied with smooth moderate carbonation. The finish is moderately bitter and abundantly fruity.

This is a fantastic American Pale Wheat. Super hoppy and boozy for the style, but complex and delicious. A classic and a must try.

A- clear deep gold. About a finger of foamy white head lasts a while but eventually dissipates. Some lasts and leaves nice lacing. A little visible carbonation.

S- richly malty sweet with caramel and floral notes.

T- subtle but flavorful. Floral hops dominates up front and melts into the malt backbone.

M- a big bite from bitterness on the initial taste smooths out at the end.

O-a delicious summer ale

A: Pours a clear golden color with a good head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of pine, with a bit of fresh grain in the background,nice and clean.

T: Taste of pine/citrus upfront with a bit of honey sweetness and hint of fruit. Good bitterness and a clean finish with just a bit lingering.

F: Fairly medium body, Crisp, smooth and refreshing. One of those beers that hit the spot.

D: Great drinker that goes down easy. A beer with a unique character that lets it stand tall in a sea of IPAs.

Poured a clear orange-amber with a thin film of white head. Full aroma of grapefruit/orange citrus.

Moderate carbonation and a resinous, creamy mouthfeel. Grapefruit and tangerine up front followed by some biscuit and caramel sweetness. Gentle pine bitterness on the finish gains intensity as the beer warms. Well-balanced and very drinkable (higher alcohol is almost undetectable).
