Draft @ CCB - orange, lots of it. Plenty of bitterness that borders on pithy astringency, yet works well with the tart and doughy wheat. Very easy to drink and has a full flavor even though it has a light mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy golden ale with orange highlights and a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Although the aroma is restrained, I’m able to pull some nice citrusy, grassy and Euro-hop notes from my glass. Light to medium-bodied and ultra-fizzy. The well-balanced flavor presents citric hop bitterness, crunchy wheat malt, smooth bread malt and light clove. Finishes crisp, moderately bitter, and then bone-dry. Cleanly brewed. Since the bouquet doesn’t really come into play for me, I could drink this straight from the bottle at the beach... daily.

the problem is, wheat ales are kind of delicate in the flavor department, so if you are going to load them up with hops you destroy the flavor. thats the problem here. i can appreciate trying something new by kind of hybridizing an ipa to wheat. but i just dont feel it works. its too peppery and piney. not a fan.
