COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Wheat Beer brewed with red wheat and boat loads of amarillo hops gives this summer brew a lemony finish. The slight haze in the bottle is from the bottle-conditioning, where yeast is added to the bottle for a secondary fermentation. Gumballhead is a Skingraft Comics hero. Check out Skingraft Comics and Records at www.skingraftrecords.com. Cheers!

Pours clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma is piney, citrusy hops with notes of fruit underneath. Flavor is grapefruit with some caramel and bananas. Nice session brew.

Bomber. Plenty of citrus and pine on the nose. Grapefruit and other citrus notes come through in the taste as well as plenty of hops. Compared to other 3F brews it comes off a tad unbalanced, but that may be getting really picky. A very fine brew.

22oz Bottle. Hazy yellowish orange with big white head. Big citrusy hop nose with some sweet malt in the background. Big citrusy hop flavor with some sweet wheat malt in the background. Rich, but light, a really fantastic and quenching brew. Bright crisp finish. A nice celebration of the hop. I absolutely love this stuff! As for some of the pricing comments, I canít exactly remember but it seems like Iíve never paid more than $4 in these parts.

22 oz bomber-pours a thick, rich offwhite head that laces and becomes rocky. Color is yellow-gold. Aroma is sweet grapefruit. Taste is sweet grapefruit, lemon,crisp, refreshing and in the background-the wheat peeks through. I would compare this to some beers that are $6-$9/6pk of 12 oz bottles, at $7 for what is just short of 2-12 oz bottles, itís pricey. After writing this I read some other ratings, it was reassuring to see others comment on the overpricing.

Tasty, good times. Hoppy for a wheat. Perk without bite. fresh forest, garden, hint of sticky dessert.

Great. Well crafted, makes me feel like a nice smooth IPA. Great hoppy touches, good malt backbone, not to ballsy. Somewhat thin foamy head that is gone in a jiffy, amber colour, great smooth finishing pine/citrus flavour, money well spent.

Great citrus aroma just like standing next to a citrus tree and taking a good whiff. Light amber color body with a decent head that left some lacing to it. Flavor had a hoppy citrus aroma and a nice taste of lemons on the palate the was acidic. Good brew and again I had to drink the bommer by myself because the others didnít want to try something new or just like that common swill. I shouldnít complain and I donít.

As other raters have noted, this wheat beer may remind you of an IPA or an APA because of a clear hop presence. Still, Gumballhead seems sweeter than most IPAs and APAs nor is it as bitter. The aroma is citrusy, malty and floral. The flavor is dominated by caramel sweetness with fruit notes, oranges and peaches. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium body with crisp carbonation. And then there are the hops that Three Floyds seems to skillfully blend into all of its brews. Nicely done.

Nice looking gold-pushing-amber body, sticky white head. Big lemony citric hoppy aroma, great light malt flavors to balance. If this was reasonably priced, Iíd keep it around. As it is, Iíll probably never buy it again ($6/bomber = almost $20/six pack!).
