Hop Sun

ImageBilled as a summer wheat beer, Hop Sun from Southern Tier Brewing Company, Lakewood, NY is a light gold and highly carbonated wheat ale with a good dose of dry hops.  Beneath its sparse white head lies a brew that wafts its bouquet of sweet pine and citrus through the air.  Very enticing!  Hop Sun is light-bodied but packs a hoppy punch that is quickly backed by a perfumey sweetness.  Lingering dryness adds interest to this beer which would go well with spicy, summertime food.  At 5.1% ABV you can enjoy a few and still keep your wits about you.
