4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a gorgeous hazy amber with white silky head. Aroma of citrus fruits such as pineapple and orange as well as mango. Flavor is more if those tropical notes. Tastes like an IPA that's missing the bitter bite. Very tasty, and greatly made beer.

Tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin broken white head and a little lace. The aroma is wheat, yeasty citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big spicy Citra hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Mediun bodied with average carbonation.

Pint can from whole foods sb. This beer is heavier than I expected - I notice the wheat but honestly might not ID it if I didn't know it was a wheat beer - nice hop presence as advertised and I like the combo with wheat - an experiment that works well. Definitely worth a can or 4-pack to give it a try

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A friend in San Diego sent a few over along with some other goodies. This is a really odd beer (but in a good way). I saw "hoppy tropical wheat" and expected an American wheat beer. Nope. Pours clear and mid amber color. Light head, I expected more for a "wheat" beer. Punchy citra aroma, catty, citrus, more complex aromas. Taste is off dry with lots of yummy hops. Aftertaste is clean and hoppy.
Not too bitter, they must have hopburst this baby with high quality hops. As the beer warms up, the tropical fruit really starts shining. Tangerine and mango with a bit of pineapple. Boy, this is good stuff. It is really different from big IPAs because it eschews (heh) the bitterness and sweetness, and heads just for a huge aroma of hops. I will have to give cloning this a try .... really nice session beer.

On tap at the brewpub. It poured a hazy golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was of fruity hops, citrus, grass, apples, mango and some hay. The taste was of floral hops, grass, mango, oranges, hay and some pineapples. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can to glass. Pours a mostly clear light golden orange color with an off white head. Aroma is a wonderful fleshy tropical fruit hops with a touch of wheat and caramel malts. Flavor is a bit more mild, with wheat, hint of tropical fruits, citrus. Lighter in body and very drinkable. Lingering wheat and tropical fruit hops. Very tasty beer.

16 ounce can thanks to Justin. Ok. Not what I expected. Huge tropical notes and lovely Citra hops. Wheat beer? Where? Great stuff.

Pours a slightly hazy gold from the can with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma is definitely citrus hop forward with a hint of the wheat malt behind. Taste is like a great IPA with a wheat smoothness and sweetness. Really probably the best what beer I’ve ever had, but honestly it’s closer to an IPA.
