Grapefruit nose; Citrus Fruit and Pine are strong. Cloudy Yellow; fizzy.Taste has a strong bite; but flavor is less than expected from the aroma. Not bad. Last of the Amy and Brian, beer of the month gift.

Appearance: cloudy orange with decent foam

Smell: wheat, and citrus not overally aromantic

Taste: apricot, wheat, malt, hop

Mouthfeel: Medium carb, appropriate for the style

Overall: a decent wheat/pale ale - defactor hef with a nice hop bite. At TJs it came in a 12 pack for $10.99 so I really only got this cuz it came at a great price. I really liked this as a hef because it wasn't overly malty but had all the qualities of a hef with a nice bitter finish

Coriander spiced IPA? Interesting but not my style.

Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with a 1/2 inch head that stays for a little bit. Moderate amount of lacing along the glass -- aroma is hoppy with citrus/grapefruit being the most overwhelming characteristic. Very pleasant. Slightly sour finish, but overall very solid and enjoyable.
