4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: pours a slightly hazy light gold with a nice bone white heard and a good amount of lacing.
S: The first whiff let’s me know that this is one serious American Wheat. Loads of hops and...that’s about it. Love it. Some slight grain but mostly citrus and earthy hops.
T: Wow. By far, far, far the beat American Wheat I’ve ever had. Takes the throne from Gumballhead without a doubt. Loads of citrus and earthy hops with a hefty dose of bitterness. This is absolutely all about the hops. Not sure if this is all Citra, as I do taste a bit of Amarillo-type flavors.
M: bitter and dry. No alcohol taste as expected. Love the low ABV here. Light body and moderate carb--everything says amazing hoppy summer session beer.
D: off the charts. Super glad we picked up a keg of this, but disappointed in myself for only ordering a sixtel. If you’re in the Mid-Atlantic, seek this out NOW!
Serving type: on-tap

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma has an earthy, musty quality, and clear citrus. The appearance is a hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, but much more citrusy, and very enjoyable. The finish is a clean, nice citrus bitterness. The beer is thin to medium in body. Very enjoyable. I wouldn’t guess I was drinking a wheat ale while drinking this. Must be the citra.

On tap, at brewery. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a small wispy white head that ran to a thin ring. Beautiful big bright citra hop nose with some minimal wheat notes. Not much makes it past all these delicious hops. The flavor is incredibly hoppy but not bitter at all. The wheat notes are there, but this is all about the hops. Citrusy, juicy, bursting with livelyness. The mouthfeel is light bodied and airy with great fizzy prickly carbonation. Long lingering citrusy and leafy hops. Very nice and refreshing, a hell of a Wheat Ale!
