4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(bottle) This is so easy to drink and dangerous to session. A nice understated aroma with creamy, full-bodied IPA appearance. Very smooth and without bitterness. This is a future "pick of the week" but must wait for summer to emerge.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Citrus hops, especially grapefruit on this golden orange pour. Bitter, hops in the flavor at first followed by some mild toast and some notes of grapefruit. Lingering bitter finish. I rather enjoyed this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours a golden amber color with a thin white head. Aromas of citrus, pine with some wheat in the background. Medium bodied with a nice bitter finish. Like a cross between a wheat beer and IPA. Great spring/summer beer

Pours a cloudy golden color with a light white head. Nice hop flavor that lingers nicely long after the swallow.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden-orange pour with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Very fresh citrus aroma. Notes of orange, lemon, and even light traces of banana and berry. Taste is much hoppier than the aroma would have you believe. A big pine kick is almost bracing at first, but settles into a dull, pleasantly bitter finish. Fruit notes are quite evident. A slightly tangy, grassy flavor is added with the wheat. Palate is crisp and effervescent. What can I say, these guys know how to make a damn good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Translucent golden with a high, frothy, and sticky white head. Great lacing.
Floral hops with some citrus/grass scents and something that reminds me of the beach. Almost like a spicy aloe vera. Whatever it is, it smells delicious. Smells sweet, tangy, and sharp.
The hops are strong in flavor but mellow in bitterness. Thatís a neat effect. Thereís a sharpness in the carbonation too like many wheat beers. Not overly sweet with a good hop kick. But this is a guzzler. The hops arenít slowing anything down on this beer. Itís very well balanced between sweetness and itís herbal and floral hops.
Absolutely great spring/summer session.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear orange pour, white head. Smells juicy, fruity, slightly tropical with some piney notes. Similar flavor, has a sweet biscuity malt body but is more about fruity, citrusy hop flavors. Dries out pretty nicely as it finishes with resinous piney bitterness. Really lovely cheap six pack.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy,yet still clear somewhat light golden orange, with nice creamy white head, leaving a good considerable amount of foamy lacing.
Very sweet, fruits, tropical fruits, maybe some banana,pineapples hit the nose. Very pleasant.
Very citrusy and fruity, without being overly getting sick from it sweet, but sweet nonetheless. Hops come in noticeably in the end, to balance it all out. Light to average carbonation,maybe below average carbonation,which is always a plus in my book. Medium body.
A damn fine beer,very interesting. Pleasant and sweet,while still being consumable for more than one or two,it makes a good session brew and a break from the usual.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Sam Horneís served in a Mason jar. Golden pour with a thin bright white head. Lightly carbonated. Faint Earthy hop aroma. Tastes like fresh hops but with the sweetness and light body of wheat. Yum! Slippery mouthfeel but finishes dry. Dangerously deceptive at 7.7% ABV. I would have guessed much lighter, between 5% and 6%. Iíve avoided this six pack in the stores many times because it never looked as good as other options but Iím going to pick up some bottles for a post-lawn mowing moment this weekend.
