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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
