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.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Pours a clear light golden yellow with a big fluffy white head and excellent lacing. Light aroma of citrus, mild mango and some pine from the hops, with a hint of malt and wheat. Taste has citrus hop flavor that hints at tropical, some pine and pale malt and wheat. Medium mouthfeel with medium/high carbonation. Liked this beer much more than the first time I had it in 2013. Still sort of straight forward and simple but seemed more flavorful this time. ---Jeremy H

Large sample pour of golden straw with clean white head. Nose is light, wheaty, citrus and refreshing. Flavor is similar, light citrus and wheat textures. Itís enjoyably drinkable for a wheat beer

Had on tap at 3 Floyds. Light flavors of citrus and hops. Fairly light ale. Easy drinking but nothing special.

Outstanding beer! I had no idea it was a wheat beer. Very hoppy, as an IPA should be. Golden color. Thin white head. Smelled great, tasted great. Love it!

Awesome! However, itís not much like the typical wheat beer out there...thatís the point. Aroma is very hoppy with lots of citrusy aromas. Taste is citrusy with just some faint wheat character bleeding through. Finish is sweet, slightly cloying with little bitterness.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear light copper with a one finger soapy white head that fades to a thin cap leaving some splotchy lacing. Aroma really jumps out and it amazingly juicy. Great mango/tropical fruit nose with some hints of bread. Really canít get much better than this. The flavor is just as awesome as the aroma. There is more malt than I was expecting but it perfectly compliments the juiciness from the hops. Tropical fruit backed up by darkish great with a touch of spiciness that almost reminds me of rye. Body is lacking but it just helps make this beer even more sessionable. Overall, does it live up to the hype? Iím not sure. This is an amazing beer but Lagunitas really gives them a run for the money with their Sumpiní line. Nonetheless a very good brew that every beer geek needs to try.

Very unique. Mix between a wheat beer and ipa. Really enjoyable and one of my favorites from FFF.

A wheat beer that tastes really like no other. Ramped up on the hops with a grassy and lemony feel to it. Has the typical FFF íhouseí feel whilst steering in a different direction to their other flagship ales. Refreshing and easy drinking.
