Hop Sun (Summer Wheat Beer)

Had this a few times in the last week or so, both on tap and from the bottle. Definitely preferred the draft version and this review reflects that serving style.
Bright orange pour with a decent amount of cloudiness. Seems clearer on draught than from the bottle which adds extra haze. Nice, high, substantial white head.
In both cases I got a really decent amount of soap character in the taste. The hop presence seems to work up quite a big taste considering the style of the beer. If the soap taste is done right I really enjoy it in a beer; reminds me of the old days of Courage Best and Courage Director’s. Finish is clean and reflects a touch more citrus (tangerine) than we found on the front end.
The beer is refreshing and satisfying at the same time.
Really enjoyed this beer, and to be honest one of the better Southern Tier beers that I’ve had of late.
