3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Huge hoppy nose, big time citrus over caramel and light pine, chewy Lagunitas caramel and light spicy dough. Airy yeast with light mineral and medium phenolics, strong Belgian dried fruit component with the bubblegum. Bright and punchy. Orange pour with highlights of Ruby Red Grapefruit and a creamy white head. Taste is dry and hoppy, sourish malt with a bready aftertaste after the wood, resin, and tropical fruit have passed. Wheat mash and lightly rubber yeast. Full body pushing fat with light crispness. Bitterness from the middle through the end. Big mishmash of flavors, but as colorful as a rainbow and worth the expedition.

22 oz. bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours a glowing reddish-orange with a small white head. Aroma of bubblegum and banana, citrus, a bit of tang. There are some notes of wheat and sweet bread notes. Flavor is nice, refreshing. It has the sweetness of a wheat ale with a significant amount of citrus hop character. Mildly sweet, mildly bitter. The mouthfeel is light bodied, with lively carbonation. Finishes on an earthy hop note. Very nice, enjoyable hoppy wheat ale.

Nice strong offwhite head of fine bubbles. Lots of citrus goodness in the aroma with some wheat, light malts and pineapple. Color is a hazy dark orange. Slightly dry and chalky palate from the wheat with a nice helping of citrusy hops, roasted grains and some spicy yeasty notes. Light alcohol presence with a decent bitterness. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. A pretty good hopped up wheat beer.
