A - Pours yellow gold with a hint of amber with nearly 2 fingers of almost white head. Good retention, lacing is good.

S - Lots of grapefruit and lemon zest. Kind of similar to alpha king more lighter with more zest. Definitely some wheatyness and minimal caramel malts.

T - Lots of light lemony citrus, some hops but not bitter, and some grapefruit. Decently grainy afterwards and incredibly tame flavor after the initial kick. Basically like an APA up front and then a semi-grainy, wheat flavor. A bit metallic as well, then bitterness hits at the finish/aftertaste. Light on the wheat characteristics and great apa characteristics. I'm not complaining.

M - Light bodied, well carbonated, fantastically drinkable.

O - Awesome APA flavored wheat. Not even sure you can call it a wheat, but its damn tasty.
