4.35/5  rDev +17.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Slightly hazy golden colour with a creamy white head. Fair head retention.

Light floral hop aroma with a hint of wheat. Simple yet nice.

Big, crisp fruity hop character with plenty of citrus and the barest hint of pine.

Medium light body with moderate carbonation. Nice and crisp.

A really well crafted beer for summer weather with a hop character that keeps you coming back for more.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The pour is a fairly clear golden straw color with a fluffy white head.

S: Light wheat and bready malts on the nose, but not much in the way of hops or yeast. A pretty light beer overall. With some very light floral notes.

T: Nice bread and wheat flavors with a subtle sweetness, but not much bitterness either. Some citrus hop notes, with minimal floral hop flavors. Just a touch of yeast on the back end.

M: Light to medium in body with medium carbonation.

O: Like all of the house beers, this is drinkable and certainly devoid of flaws, but this one was pretty average to me.

On-tap at the Seal Beach locale, on to the beer:

Clean golden yelow in color with a show of decent head retention and tiny amounts of lace. The nose is clean with some soft hoppy aromas, bringing asorted citrus to the table. And the taste follows the direction of the nose; a fairly clean tastiing wheat ber with a solid hoppiness for fun. Clean wheat malt and a sizzle of orange and vague citrus provide some joy to this refreshing ale. All in all, expect a more than decent ride that is easy to get down.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a fairly clear yellow with a medium white head, some lace.

S: Cracked wheat and some tropical fruit, fairly green.

T: Clean wheat flavour with some grassy hops and lemon, but nothing really jumping at me. Good flavour.

M: Crisp and clean. Light-bodied and refreshing.

O: Nothing to blow you away, but in the style compared to a lot that's out there it's impressive. A summer beer for sure.
