Sampled off the tap at the brew pub.Orange gold color in the pint glass. Nice tropical fruit in the nose along with tangerine and lemon. Very smooth and balanced in your mouth. Initial sweetness quickly gives way to a solid hop backbone with the citra hop flavor well apparent. Balanced finish not overly sweet. Loved this beer.

Showed on tap at the brewpub when we got there. Nice surprise, I had a lot of expectations since I love citra and what Iíve heard from it. Aroma: This one is all hops: earthy, citrus and soap. Appearance: Pale orange with small head. Flavors: Light, some tropical fruits. Feels likes there is no backbone. Palate: Quite dry but too watery. Overall: Expectations were not met.

Gold in color with a thin white head. Super (citra) pine hop aroma and taste. A nice pale with great hoppiness.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2011
On tap: The aroma is citrusy and fruit with peach, mango, and grapefruit. Itís a transparent amber with a small white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The flavor starts with peach, mango, and a hint of pineapple. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and a hint of mint. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation. Iíd love to have this available in Michigan.

Tap sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus hop aroma. Moderate bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium duration. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Very good brew.

Mostly a straight up barely above average wheat if you ask me. Iím getting strong banana, clove, hints of bubblegum and small bits of flowery hopiness. Wonít have again, unless I find out this is an older not so fresh version Iím drinking.
