Pours to a huge and lacy head that stays at 3/4 inch or more the whole time. Smells of a top tier American wheat with more late hop additions of the pine and floral variety. It smells like a hoppy APA wheat beer hybrid as expected. Flavor is sharp and tangy wheat and those delicious herbal floral hops (not so much pine and bitterness in the taste which allows the wheat base to refresh the palate. Mouthfeel is light and pleasing. Overall, I'd put this on the keeper list.

In a glass from a bottle pours very pale yellow and cloudy with a nice two finger foam head. A faint piney hop smell and a little more prominent in taste. Called a Hoppy Wheat. Hops are certainly present but not overboard which I was expecting. And that's not a bad thing. Loses some head but never completely. A little lace. Goes down nice with no bite or lingering aftertaste. Very good and at 5.50% Very Drinkable Bartender.....I'll have one more.

Sampling right now on 3/26/15. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage "Boulevard" tulip glass.

Brew pours a hazy golden-yellow in color with a good 2-finger foamy white head that finally settled down to around 5mm after a while. A good amount of sticky ring-like lacing is seen when sipped that sticks to the sides of the glass.. The aroma is of pine and floral hops for the most part. Pretty much the same for the taste with some citrus zest also. Really not as hoppy as you might think and not a I.P.A. style brew either which I am not a big fan of. Just a very slight bitter finish is noted BUT wasn't bad and didn't last long. medium-bodied with good carbonation. Overall not a bad brew as I am not really a big fan of American Pale Ales for the most part.
