COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike most American wheat beers this one is resoundingly hoppy but not overly bitter thanks to generous additions of Citra hops from the Pacific Northwest. These hops add refreshing citrus-like aromas and flavors akin to pineapple, grapefruit and orange to this thirst quenching summer seasonal.

On tap at the Thorpe residence. Thanks Mike and Amy! A: Slightly hazy and yellow in color. The beer has a dense inch of head that leaves some random lacing on the glass. S: A nice potpourri of spices, wheat, herbal tea, floral notes. T: Really tasty. Subtle earthy, floral and herbal notes comprise the basic makeup of the flavor profile. M: Fairly light in body with moderately low carbonation. Alcohol content is a non issue. D: Easy to drink. This beer was very fresh and enjoyable. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-01-2010

On tap at the brewpub on 10.30.2010. Only had a single glass at the brewery, but grabbed a sixtel and will certainly have some updates as that goes down. Pours a light yellow with a bit of a golden touch. Very clear and transparent. Nice white head with some pretty good lacing. The nose is a bit soft and not nearly as intense as the Citra-delic, but it brings some light citrus and floral notes that are quite pleasing. The taste is moderately bitter, but not the tongue bruiser that Citra-delic was. Good citrus hops. The bitterness provides a really nice, dry finish and drinks really well. Another great example of a hoppy wheat. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-30-2010

Growler provided by Thorpe...Pours a light copper, pretty clear, decent carbonation for a growler...The aroma is light sweet hops, a little citrus notes...The taste is more of the same, sweet hops, so easy to drink but really good flavor...Really easy to drink, worth trying.

On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear light copper body with a small off-white head. Nice fresh floral hop nose with a light touch of grassiness and a little yeast. The flavor is pretty mild as far as the base beer, but it showcases the hops pretty well because the base is so light. Very light on the bitterness, much more floral and perfumy. Finishes with some long lingering grassy hops. Lighter bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Decent I guess, but it pales in comparison to the Citra version.
