4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas. Aroma has orange hop notes as well as some cattiness and hempiness present. Some ethanol is also detected. A few candy sugars do a pretty good job of hiding the ethanol, though. Transparent orange-copper color with a nice frothy off-yellowish head that leaves nice lacing. Spritzy orangey hops present to start, which is followed by a really good and solid malt backbone that has just enough sweetness. Finishes with more citrus flavored hoppiness. An incredibly well-balanced and drinkable ale. It drink pretty good.

Poured from as bottle. Nice grapefruit and pine in the nose. Golden hue with some orange breaks in the middle. Frothy white head that laces nicely as I drink. Sweetness in a dominant wheat flavor of the malt with grapefruit and citrus flavors as the bitterness comes through.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice golden pour with a wheat and citrusy aroma. Certainly more dense than the Sumpin’ Sumpin’. Great piney and citrusy flavor. Pretty much a hop bomb through and through. I do get a sense of the wheat in this with a zesty and spicy flavor. I get a complex finish that is buttery rich, peppery and earthy.
