Three Floyds Gumball Head

Day four of the Three Floyds Brewing Company American craft beer binge continues. I think, sadly, the streak will end here. I also took a look at the beers that I have had and realize that I had Alpha King back on Day 103 while visiting the brewery back in March. Hopefully this doesn’t make me a bad person but shows how much I like the damn beer. I will also have to have add beer 366 onto the end to make up for the duplicate. More than likely I will do this again so I should just make it 370. 🙂

Gumball Head is an American Wheat Ale that has more hop aroma than your average IPA in some cases. Citrus hops greets the nose as wheat malt can be found lagging behind. The taste is crisp and refreshing with nary bitterness in the finish. A well rounded, balanced beer that is fantastic in the summer but holds up other times of the year too. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9 (25%), Taste: 8 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 8.8

Useless Fact: The female knot-tying weaverbird will refuse to mate with a male who has built a shoddy nest. If spurned, the male must take the nest apart and completely rebuild it in order to win the affections of the female.
