Grass Monkey Hoppy Wheat Ale

SweetWater Grass Monkey? Did Freddy finally brew a marijuana beer? If so, this one isn't it! Rather, Grass Monkey is a Hoppy Wheat Ale with lemongrass. The story on the back label sets your expectations with a Beastie Boys "Funky Monkey" line. 5.4% alcohol. 35 IBU. Best By 04/27/17.

VERY lemony aroma. Ditto on the flavors, super lemony and hoppy. There is a nice tangy aspect and a little lemony sourness as well. A little astringent at the finish. However, this is pretty one-note, full of lemony sharpness throughout and kind of "meh" because of that. Not "extremely complex" as the label suggests. Wasn't my thing.
