Canned 5/8/18; drank 7/15/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque yellow/orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice white head; frothy lace.

Lemon, dry wheat & faint orange citrus notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Lemon & mild orange citrus flavors up front; dry wheat notes on the finish.

A bit sharp, but flavorful & enjoyable. I'd have another...

A: Poured from the can into a Palm tulip. Body is pale straw yellow with a 1.5-finger foamy white head.

S: Wheat and a bit of citrus - mainly grapefruit and a lot of lemon.

T: Follows the nose, with a touch of wheat tang and lots of fruity, hoppy goodness: grapefruit, grapefruit rind, white grape skins, orange peel and a nice lemony finish. Very tasty for such a "light" beer.

M: Light in heft, good carbonation.

O: Well done. A nice changeup on a hot day.

Whoa! Straight-up (alcoholic) grapefruit juice!

Pours hazy yellow (like gf or pineapple) juice. Slight white head & lacing.

Smells of grapefruit rind.

Taste follows aroma.

Feel is oily/creamy. with light carbonation tingle lingering on the finish .

Overall, very well done. would gladly imbibe any time! :)

What a solid beer. Or I guess it is really still an ale, but sort of beer like.

It pours light pale yellow, with fine fizz. The aroma is subdued but nuanced - all nice. The taste is mostly dry but with a sugary undertone that works nicely. I would definitely go for a couple of these.

Highly recommended.

Pours a very cloudy pale straw yellow color with a thumbnail length bubbly head. However, not the best retention on the head as it soon dissipates.
A very hops forward aroma announces itself as an American version of Hefeweizen. Grapefruit, lemon, orange, peach and pineapple emit fruity aromas. A moderate amount of herbal dank is IPA like.
There is a soft wheat sweetness that initially greets the tongue and is pleasant. The grains have a nutty and honey quality. However, soon the flavors and bitterness of the hops develop. Hints of citrus peels, tropical and pitted fruit add an element of juiciness. There is a moderate bitterness and a touch of herbal resin in the finish.
Medium bodied, smooth and even creamy. The carbonation is gentle.
I thought this was a delightful American version of wheat beer. It combined the hops forward qualities of American ales with the softness of Hefeweizen. Delightful overall.

L: Hazy, almost opaque bright yellow with a big soapy white head. Medium-poor retention, but a thin film remains, leaving splotchy lacing.

S: Huge pineapple, lemon-lime, mandarin orange, and peach hop aromas, with a creamy, slightly grainy/nutty wheat build, and slight herbaceousness.

T: Big pineapple, apricot, and white peach upfront. Sweet, fruity, juicy, but also tart. Lemon, lime, and tangerine as well. Creamy, white bread/doughy malt with a tinge of honey hold up the middle. Finishes fairly clean, lightly dry, with a slight lingering orange note before an abrupt finish, and a faint lingering dankness.

F: Creamy upfront, well-rounded, moderately-highly carbonated; clean and crisp. Thins out by the finish but doesn't go watery.

O: An outstanding beer; combining the best elements of NEIPA and pale wheat ale with fusion of fruity hops and creamy malt.

12 oz can into IPA glass.
Nice hazy golden yellow color. Smell is light tropical tangerine. Taste follows nose, nice sweet fruit taste. Feel is nice creamy smooth. Overall this is a very nice pale ale with no real bitterness and a nice feel and taste.

Appearance: Arrives cloudy and goldenstraw colored with a nice head that leaves shards of lacing

Smell: Bready, with pineapple, apricot and lemon tones

Taste: Bready flavors forward, like a head fake, with the pineapple and apricot flavors building; lemon pith tones add moderate bitterness to the middle, though the finish is rather juicy

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A hybrid, for sure, that is refreshing and juicy, with moderate hop tones, while maintaining some integrity as a wheat beer
