Pour Hop Sun Summer Wheat Beer into a pint glass, give it a long whiff and you’ll realize that this isn’t your average wheat beer. Filtered to a golden clarity and dry-hopped to perfection, Hop Sun is a fantastic session ale in which flavors of wheat, barley and hops co-mingle to a refreshing and zesty conclusion. Hints of lemon and sweet malts waft to the fore as a touch of bitterness contributes to Hop Sun’s bright finish. Enjoy Hop Sun all summer long as a perfect balance to your outdoor recreation. Summer never tasted so good.

Bottle. Seems like it’s been forever since I had a Hop Sun. Moderately dark for the style, full-bodied. A little bit of hops but fades quickly into a nice sweetness. Not too heavy.

BOD 2/23/15. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Nice nose of citric hops (lemon), hints of banana and a base of biscuit. Medium bodied with a very smooth texture that approaches slick. Perfectly carbonated with a rich prickly effervescence from the middle on. The flavor profile is world class - intense, complex and perfectly balanced. It begins with a clean and crisp wave of mild hop flavor (lemon, light orange and a bit of pine). The middle brings a light bitterness with a hint of zest. Wheat and biscuit make their appearance between the middle and finish. It finishes clean and crisp with a wonderful effervescent burst that leaves you with a slow blended fade of all the previous flavors and a hint of phenolic clove.

Obfuscate (388) - Minneapolis, - APR 18, 2015
Pleasantly hoppy, strong on the lemon on the nose. Pale yellow color not very hazy for a wheat. The lemon is stronger than the wheat it the taste also and I start in the back end. Easy to drink.

trapped (1782) - New York, TURKEY - APR 15, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Clear goldwn yellow with almost no head, faint doughy aroma, low carbonation, slight honey taste, abrupt finish. Quite a bland brew.
