This beer is likely to be enjoyed by both hop heads and by those with a less hoppy beer preference. The hops come across prominently in the aroma as an approachable apricot and passionfruit character, compared to the more aggressive hop character in other hoppier beers. A bready wheat character lends support to the abundance of hops and is quite readily apparent in the hazy appearance of this golden beer. This beer finishes moderately bitter, dry, and refreshing with a lingering apricot and herbal hop character. Very refreshing, very hoppy, and very much to be enjoyed by all.
