COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is NOT your typical wheat beer! The third in our series using a single variety of hops with the same base wheat beer and for this one I used Amarillo hops. This will be an ongoing experiment to truly taste the differences between hop varieties.

On draft at the Thorpe residence. Thanks Mike and Amy! A: The beer appears hazy and orange with a small head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. S: Aromas of potent hops (Amarillo hops, by any chance?). T: A nice tasting brew, with a prominent hop presence. Pleasant citrus flavors are in there as well, with a very subdued malt presence. M: Medium-thin in body, with a moderately low level of carbonation, making for a smooth and easy drinking experience. D: I would definitely drink this again. Very enjoyable.

On draft at home. Served in a Heady Topper pint glass. Pours a slightly-hazed very light copper color with a two-finger white head that leaves behind quite a bit of lace and a nice white color with a bit of a cap. Nose brigs a hefty dose of Amarillo hops and some light wheat character. Good citrus notes and a very slight floral character. The flavor is, again, Amarillo hops. One of the few hop varieties Iím intimately familiar with and it really pops in this brew. Reminds me quite a bit of Gumballhead. The mouthfeel is light and fairly bitter, though I donít think quite as much so as the Crystal-ized and certainly not as much as the Citra-delic. Still, fairly dry finish with superior drinkability. As Iíve said before, I love this concept and am glad to have the third in the series. Canít wait to find out whatís next. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-16-2010

Thorpe again!!! Growler poured into a perfect pint glass...A dark but clear gold with a hint of peach. An off white fluffy head with good retention and lacing...The aroma is on the lighter side, but still nice. Lots of wheat, amarillo hops, but also bitter hops, sweet overall...The taste is even better, the amarillo hops come through giving it a sweet backbone and really reminds me of gumballhead. However, this is a touch sweeter and has more hops, so its a sweet but really hoppy beer. This is so tastey and drinkable, went back to the growler several times. This is a must try, especially being a Bullfrog.

Great amarillo hop flavor in a wheat beer. Not a typical wheat. Some wheat flavor, but mainly american pale ale taste. Dry in the taste and finish. The taste and finish are slightly watery, which takes away from the beer.

Bright orange, thin beige head. Experience has bright citrus, orange and wheat with a soapy, dry finish that sticks a bit too much.

Growler, thanks Avalon68! Huge juicy citrus nose, little shortbread. Tarnished gold, small white head. Big juicy direct pineapple and lemon, light bodied, toasty white bread in the finish. Could drink this all day, great sessionable beer.

On tap, at brewery. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body withe a smelly fizzy white head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is bursting with fresh green leafy and lightly piney Amarillo hops. Not much of the base beer makes it past, but hey, this is a showcase for the hops right? The flavor is wonderfully fresh Amarillo all the way. Bitter, citrusy, piney, and amazingly bright. The base stays nicely in the background letting the hops drive the show. Light to medium bodied with a fairly brisk bitterness and fizzy prickly carbonation. Good beer, an an even better learning experience.
