Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Citrus nose with spice. Med body with banana, lime, orange and wheat with a creamy, soft bitter presence. Semi dry finish with wheat and citrus. Very nice.

750mL bottle pours clear gold with near white head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice load of nearly vibrant, for the style, hoppiness and earthy green leaf notes. Smells yummy. The taste is firmly hop forward, again for the style, with a pleasing mix of lemon, lime and grapefruit all tempered by mild levels of malts, grainy malts, a bit of cereal and wheat. Great hot weather brew and I love the hop forward aspect as it increases the sessionability of it.

Canned 04/08. Attractive silky white head. Vibrant orange, yellow hue. Hazy is an understatement. Creamy, heavy hop oil (like a NZ galaxy), grainy husk texture gives a zesty flavor. Clean yeast. Tons of flavor relative to average AWA. Great 6-pack for golfing.

Can from the brewery that was an impulse buy enjoyed in a darkened hotel room hoping the kids fall/stay asleep. Very nice aroma of citrus fruit and sweet hops. Great base wheat flavor with a nice orange hop bite. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750mL bottle sampled at Cigar City. Thanks jdub for the share. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a white head. Nose is tropical fruit, some citrus, orange, lemon, and hints of peach and hops. Some wheat as well. Flavor is similar; light with fruit and citrus all over. Nice, beautiful hot weather beer. Light to medium in body and lingering fruit in the finish.
