Wow, this is a wheat beer? Sure fooled me, this beer smells and tastes like a perfectly balanced IPA to me! Drinkability is outstanding on this one, sessionable... yes! Smells like pineapple, grapefruit and citrus. Taste is just as good as the aroma, hardley notice the wheat at all, and for me that is a good thing. I would recommend this to everybody who can get it.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Stone pint.

A- pours a light golden with a 2 finger white head. A few bubbles and blotches remain on the glass.

S- caramel, light bread, citrus, honey

T- honey, pale malts, caramel, nice citrus with a light bitterness.

M- light body and medium carbonation. Nice light feel from the wheat with a crisp finish.

O- very nice beer for what it is. Definitely prefer zombie dust over this but a nice light, crisp citrus beer.
