12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 7/27/2017. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Great thick foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, fruity yeast, and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, citurs rind, pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, fruity yeast, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 7%. Overall this is a delicious American pale wheat/IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, fruity yeast, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Nicely vibrant and dank on hops. Tastes like a classic C hopped IPA with balanced pale/wheat malts, and American wheat yeast for added fruity character. A very enjoyable, and pretty unique offering.

Pours a clear crisp orange color. Effervescent. Thick bubbly tan head lingers, slowly dissipating and leaving some tan lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell is a pungent aroma of green hops - the kind of aroma you'd get from opening a bag of hop pellets. Bitter and almost harsh on the nose. Some citrus peaks through.

Taste has notes of orange, strong pine, sap, very bitter in the middle and lingering to the finish and beyond. Again, the hops are almost harsh in this - not well integrated.

Feel is smooth, pretty light. Medium carbonation.

Overall this is an alright beer - It just comes across very rough/harsh and not well integrated - muddled.

1/2/16 Chicago (12 oz Bottle poured into pint glass) Golden orange pour, light white head which quickly dissipated. Wheat and hops aroma. Strong hops taste, nice solid carbonation and feel while drinking. Easy going down.Overall good offering.

L-clear, pretty copper color leaning amber. 2-3 fingers of fine suds that lingers a while. Good looking beer.

S-loads of hop aroma, piney, citrus, perhaps some pineapple/tropical fruits.

T-fairly bitter with some of the same notes as the aroma but a little greener tasting. The sweeter, caramel notes are there in the background and increasingly in the finish.

F-this feels a little more viscous than I'd like. It really sticks around which is not what I would expect from a hoppy, moderate strength wheat.

O-I like this beer and would have a couple but wouldn't buy a six. It looks and smells really great but is, perhaps, a little muddled when it comes to taste and heavier feeling than I'd like.

Pours a bright amber with light head, much darker than I'd have expected a wheat beer to look. Sweet with deeper malt character than I expected and a notable slightly bitter citrus finish. Enjoyed this one - see it more as a competitor to Lagunitas Lil' Sumpin Sumpin than to Gumballhead.

Tasted in a Teku glass from a 12 oz bottle on August 16, 2015. Look is bright amber, medium head that thins quickly and some thin lacing. Smell is wheat, citrus fruit, and sweet pale malt. Taste is a little sweet grain and then strong bitter citrus fruit. Feel is medium in body with a dry bitter finish.

It's tasty enough. I would have wanted the wheat aspect to have come through a little more. Similar style to Gumball head but not as much citrus flavors. Hoppy with an easy drinkability. The 7%abv is not even noticeable.

Given the label of a wheat pale ale, I wanted this to be a little lighter and to have more of the wheat taste. Caught some hops in the nose and on the taste, but the finish was clean and not as sweet as I wanted. Would drink again as is solid beer, but is behind other wheat ales for me.
