COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

monkeychugg55 (873) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
Clear golden with a small white head. Pilsner-esque aroma of bready malt, with some wheat, citrusy, floral hops and a touch of froot loops. Clean flavor with some steady, brisk bitterness, and a bit of hops on the finish. Easy drinking and quite refreshing.

Light golden orange appearance. Grainy, grassy hop aroma. Taste of grains, lemon, floral hops and wheat. Nicely done summer brew.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
Summery American wheat ale with light yellowish, sticky head and pale ’old gold’ colour with calm sparkling. Very flowery aroma, like a meadow in early summer, with hints of green apple, white grape, peach, banana, lots of artisanal honey, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, grass. Mineral-like taste, pretty strong carbo, unripe fruits, mild citrussy freshness, apple, soap, pale malts, quickly overwhelmed by an ’American’ hop bitterness, peppery, grassy and long; rather thin body, even somewhat watery, and alcohol noticeable - which I find unacceptable in a beer of only 5,1% ABV. Otherwise an interesting tasting, though.

burg326 (3680) - Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Poured a golden color from the tap with aromas of light wheat, some citrus, light lemon and a touch of yeast. Flavors are wheat and citrus, light on palate, decent for the heat of summer.

BierMeHoos (101) - Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Golden, frothy white head, and nice heavy lacing. Citrus, light wheat, and mild grain aroma. Light bodied, citrus-lemon, and light wheat notes. Medium bitterness, dry finish, and medium zest. Good beer.

Salmoniform (648) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Straw hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is lime, grassy, grapefruit, straw, slight cereal. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium body and sharp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a bitter following that lingers through the finish. Overall this is a decent seasonal shelf IPA.

Beer has a hazy golden yellow color. Not a strong aroma. Very clean crisp taste with citrus hints. Great summer beer, very refreshing.
