Got this one in a trade with my beer nerd pal. Looks great in the glass with yellow body and nice billowy head that grew in the glass like a loaf of bread baking. Smell is very pleasant and hops and orange fruit is what I mostly am picking up. Taste is very nice, easy to drink session beer. Has characteristics of an American Pale Ale and also a Hef. I guess for the style of an American Wheat Pale Ale, it really nails it for the style.

Highly recommend for good all around session beer that is flavorful and thirst quenching.

Poured rather clear, certainly not hazy. Color is maybe a burnt orange with a billowing head and good lacing. Really interesting smell, you get the sweet wheat but there is also a bit of citrusy hop. The taste for me is where is stands out, it is a wonderful combination of the wheat and IPA flavors, similar to the smell, you get the sweetness of the wheat with the orange citrus taste. It is not as creamy as some, but crisp and clean and a little tangy on the tongue without any problematic bitter. Very enjoyable beer that I would gladly consume any day.

Really nice beer, unexpectedly hoppy. This is still an American Wheat Ale first and foremost, but it's got really nice bitterness, balanced by some bright and citrusy hops. Fairly clear, with a frothy head that fades quickly. Not as much body as I'd hope for in a wheat beer, but still nice to sip on. I could get used to drinking a few of these. Definitely worth a try. Super fresh at the moment. Bottled last Thursday (4.10.14).

Edit 5.2.14: It's actually 4.7% ABV, so also nice and session able.
