3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very cloudy gold. Nice frothy head with pretty lacing. Smell has sweet citrusy aroma with a wallop of funky fresh hop aroma. Even more funk than I get with some of my favorite IPA's. The taste is much more balanced than the smell but the hops quickly take over to bitter the finish. I love the play between hoppy and sweet refreshment, but I think this rides a little too much in the hop side for me.

On tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - this reminded me of an IPA - just not super hoppy. Pretty good stuff.

Tall can thanks to Frank. Obviously drank from the can. Artwork is cool but lacks any eagles or 80s sports cars, but does have an imaginary animal thing. 4/5 on appearance. Nose is tropical and fruit, like fruity pebbles. Taste is initially grainy with a slight sweetness, then a fruity hop flavor kicks in. Finishes dry with a hop touch. Slightly metallic taste, that could either be the can, or the can messing with my head. Pretty tasty. Would crush a lot on the beach.

Aroma comes across as a DIPA, but the taste doesn’t match and reminds me that this is a wheat ale instead. First brew from this brewery and has me looking forward to getting more!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Three Aces, 6/9/14
Aroma: The aroma is fruit and wheat, with peach, apricot, tropical fruit, and some lemon
Appearance: It pours a couldy yellow-orange color with a white head and some decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, wheaty and fruity, with a nice bitterness to it
Palate: The body is medium, it has an average carbonation, and a clean, dry finish
I quite enjoyed this one. It’s a very nice example of the hoppy wheat beer style. If you like wheat beers, you like hops, and you like well crafted beers, you really cannot go wrong here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is one of those wheat beers that is basically an American Pale Ale brewed w/ wheat. Hey, whatever works. This stuff is pretty tasty. Poured from a can, it’s quite cloudy in appearance, yellow w/ a foamy head. This is very much a hop-centric brew, grassy and herbal w/ a good bit of melon and citrus as well. There is a slight tea-like astringency which has a drying effect on the tongue. A touch of sweetness emphasizes the fruitiness of the hops and while the nose on this is hardly a knockout on its own, it is still very flavorful. This is a medium bodied beer w/ mild and fine carbonation. For a lighter, hoppy beer, I prefer a bit more spunky carbonation but apparently the folks at Half Acre like it more mild on that note, I’d say if you enjoy Half Acre’s flagship, you will like this quite a lot as well. They are very much cut from the same cloth: pale ales w/ lots of hop flavor that go easy on the bitterness in the finish. This is definitely one where you could pick up a couple four-packs to keep you company on a long summer afternoon.
