COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s a blend of American grown pale and wheat malts and hopped with 2009 Segal Ranch Galinas and Cascades in the kettle and then run through our hop-back with whole leaf 2009 season Cascades from Segal Ranch. We’re looking to capture the refreshing citrus flavor and aroma of American hops in a deliciously zippy unfiltered golden.

Got in a BIF from ZebraCakez. 22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy bright golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, light banana, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, light pepper, wheat, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/earthy hops, pale malt, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, light banana, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, light pepper, wheat, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, light banana, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light pine, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of citrus/earthy hops, pale malt, and yeast ester notes; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Never watery on flavors for the low ABV. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a nice and pleasant American pale wheat ale. All around good balance and solid robustness of citrus/earthy hops, pale malt, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Thanks to a buddy for bringing this one over. Bomber, bottled recently. golden yellow pour with a small head that fades fast. Nose is slightly bitter, some C-hops very american, a slight banana nose with some wheat and pepper. Bread-like with some peppercorn and graham cracker. Slight pine resin, the finish is pretty chill.

Bomber I picked up on an East Coast trip. This is hazy (after the bottle was rolled) and golden. a little effervescence. A white head is two fingers and leaves thick lacing. First sips bring interesting fruit, some Belgian undertones, and spice. The Belgian notes become mostly sugar. Citrus fruit and pale malts are in charge. The finish brought pineapple.

This beer brought me back to living in Germany and my German Summers where I sat outside and drank kristallweizen after kristallweizen!! This beer takes those who love a hefe and mixes it with those who prefer a light beer. The citrus and wheat mixtures is perfectly balanced in every sip.

Out of a bottle, one bottle poured hazy, the other clear. Not too much aroma, a malty start with a smooth finish. Good carbonation, a good summer drinker.

AirForceHops (3773) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 12, 2013
22 oz. bottle purchased @ Nikki’s Liquors Providence, R.I. Hazy gold color without any head at all. Simple brew from start to finish. Nose and flavor is the same. Taste is wheat, sweet grainy in texture with lemon citrus notes. This would be nice on a hot summer day. Overall, simple and somewhat bland.

Nephilium (1445) - Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2012
A touch of citrus hops in the aroma, pours a clear light yellow with a large white head. There’s not much going on here. Just a hint of wheat, and a quick blast of citrus hops. The bitterness fades out quick, and it’s a very light bodied beer. Drinkable, and not bad, just nothing to go out of your way for.

Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of pale malts and herbal hops. The taste is wheat, pale malts and herbal hops. Creamy texture, medium bodied, refreshing.

Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.
