Description: A seasonal beer brewed for summer, this German-style wheat ale is brewed with a significant dose of Citra hops to give it a Pacific Northwest flavor. The result is a hefeweizen with an IPA-like twist.

Tasting Notes: Like a proper hefeweizen, this beer is light and refreshing, and the mild malt and yeasty backbone provide a nice clean flavor with a spicy finish. The addition of a generous dose of Citra hops manage to augment this with natural grapefruit and peach flavors, adding to the summery feel.

Taste: Mild wheat malt, yeast, notes of citrus, hints of peach and clove spice
