Appearance: Golden yellow, ample white head, though dissipates quickly.

Aroma: Orange, lemon...typical citrus of the amarillos they put in there.

Taste: Citrus orange and lemon hits you first. The wheat comes through surprisingly well for this hop bomb. Definitely fresh hop taste, you can almost taste the hop oils.

Mouthfeel: Medium body backs up the hop bite very well. Not overly bitter. Oiliness seems to come across more on the back of the tongue.

Drinkability: Definitely wouldn't have issues slamming down a couple of these brews.

Aroma - Citrusy hops and lemon

Appearance - Clear yellow with a decent size white head and plenty of carbonation from the pour.

Taste - A light sweet backbone and a light hop bitterness. This strikes me pretty much as a well hopped light beer, which I have to admit is a wonderful idea.

Notes - I wish FFF distributed here because I would consider keeping this in my fridge all the time.
