Pours an amber color with a finger width white head with lots of lacing. Smell is of tangerines. Taste is similar with a pine aftertaste. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Light bodied beer. Overall, love this wheat beer.

Bottle purchased 8/15/17 at brewery.

L: 1F+ head with good retention. Leaves lots of lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is a clear amber.

S: Lots of orange, tangerine notes and wheat malt.

T: Light citrus in the form of orange, tangerine, and lime. Wheat malt gives solid body, but keeps it light.

F: Light bodied, decent zippy carbonation. Good construction and balance. Clean and crisp.

O: Nice wheat IPA. Wouldn't call it a session, but definitely in that realm.
