Brewer Description: (from bottle) So we’re all on collective disability. That’s cool. Let’s put some ice on it and keep ourselves elevated for a while. So, what’s on the tube..? Honey..? Get me a beer from the fridge… Will ya..? Sweetie..? Pleeease..?
(from website) Way smooth and silky with a nice wheatly-esque-ishness. A truly unique style featuring a strong hop finish on a silky body. A hoppy pale wheat ale that is great for IPA fans but so smooth that the hefeweizen fans dig it too.

Intro: A 12 oz bottle with Julian date of 222 5, so bottled on 10th August 2015 and poured into a Spiegelau American wheat beer glass.
Appearance: It poured a nice clear clean golden copper colour with a one finger off white head that stuck around for a while and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong grapefruit, pine and mandarin with a hint of bready wheat malt sweetness. There’s also a hint of lime.
Taste: Grapefruit, lemon zest and pine bitterness with orange, mandarin and light honey sweetness. The finish is a light bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: This was not bad but perhaps started out a little on the sweet side for me. I didn’t get much of the wheatiness though, but the lightly bitter finish was nice.
