4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle. I've had many of these over the years; one of the perks of living in Chicago. To sum-up my opinion in this...looks like a pale ale but with more phone. It's a lite weight wheat beer. Not much cloudiness or thickness, but does retain the citrusy sweetness and some spiciness of a model wheat beer plus it has just enough hop fire and bitterness to give it an edge. Very drinkable; if it were not for the alcohol content; I'd drink a whole six pack on my own. Smelling this is reminiscent of opening a bag of gumballs, though not in a sick way. Love this beer!

Bärnstensfärgad med litet skum. Doftar Amerikansk humle och veteöl. Smakar humligt och lite söt. Lite för gammal för ölen känns lite trött!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Bottled on 6/16 so this was only 11 days old!
Appearance: Slightly cloudy, white head about 1-2 inches thick. Many bubbles floating up from the bottom of the glass. Upon swishing, sparkling bubbles coated the sides of the glass. Color was a light gold. This beer is beautiful and very inviting!
Aroma: Very pungent with big Amarillo hop aroma. Profile consists of floral notes, fruit (passion fruit, a little grapefruit), and pine.
Taste: Hop domination on the front. Big grapefruit flavor and pine. As this beer warmed up I picked up the wheat backbone which brings a special refreshing kick of malts to the finish.
Palate: Very sudsy with a medium body, almost creamy.
Overall: This is the ideal for a refreshing beer. Beautiful merger of a pale ale and wheat beer. Very Amarillo-centric and it makes sense with that big fruit flavor! Happy to have had this with such a fresh born on date!

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow gold with a good sized white head. Nose is hoppy. Very creamy with a silky texture. Hops are upfront and dominate the flavor. Not overly bitter, there is a wheat grain backbone to help balance the hops. A hophead’s delight.
