On tap a Clinton Hall NYC in a snifter.

Phenomenal looking beer with a translucent amber color and thick off white head that produced serious lacing.

Interesting flavor profile with ripe cantaloupe being the most prominent hop flavor. A hint of bubble gum as well. This sweeter flavor is not carried throughout as the finish produces a dry flash of bitter citrus.

Not an an even keeled beer for the flavor changes noted above but there are some delicious things going on here with the ripe melon flavors and approachable bitterness on the finish. Drinks like an IPA and the hops seem to overpower the wheat which is barely present. I find these wheat pale ales/IPA's tend to be absolute failures as the hops are weak with no wheat presence. This is definitely one of the better attempts, and overall is a pretty freakin delicious beer.

On draft, pours a dark orange copper color, thin ring of white head sits on top.

Nose is dried tropical fruit, a little wheat, bubblegum, faint floral character. Th flavor is citrus and tropical fruit, moderately sweet, good balanced hop character, a little pine/resin with a bitter aftertaste. It leaves a sugary residue in my mouth that I am not loving.

Overall, this is pretty decent, the hop and wheat go together nicely.
