I really enjoyed this one. Light, but the flavor is there. Great for a summer evening.

Citrus hops with a mixture of orange and tangerine aroma. Cloudy unfiltered wheat appearance. Mildly sweet citrus hops followed by an all wheat beer finish. Very impressed how they were able to match the two styles and make an extremely easy to drink beer. I can see myself having a few of these sitting by the pool on a hot summer day.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 4/23/2015. Pours hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, light pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pale wheat ale. All around good compelxity and robustness of bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

- Hoppy wheat BB 04.23.15. Consumed 04.23.15 in a spiegelau ipa vessel.

A: Heavy hazing against a grapefruit yellow coloring packed with a dense, quick paced rate of effervesce of macro-bubbles. Chalky white, milky foam head of 1.5 inch is moderately retaining while leaving a full unbroken band of lacing behind of spongy texture.

S: Grapefruit, sugary grains on the nose with some sweet pine resins. Soft attributes, short lingering aromas quickly tampers off with some fresh wheat impressions and sweet floral.

T: Wet, citrusy grapefruit, light wheat grains, accented with spicy orange grinds. A soft background of grassy hops combine with some fresh wet greenery with a touch of lightly sour citric, wit infused dry orange and wheat fairly clean off the tongue.

M: Crisp tingly carbonation, light creamy base.

O: Crisp and refreshing wheat beer of moderate hopping that goes down rather easy. While i would of liked to see a bit more hop ummph hop wise, this is meant to be a wheat beer first with some light hoppy accents to spruce things up i believe making for a good summer time enjoyment. I did drink this at its end of life preference for consideration.

As I am not a big fan of really hoppy beers, I was unsure of what to expect. The balance is superb and the feel and taste of this beer is far above my expectations.
