Ferment @64F for 1 week, raise temp to 72F for 1 week, then dry-hop in primary @68F for 1 more week. Bottle condition using 12oz wheat DME.

It reminds me of the cheap, unpasteurized orange juice that my grandparents used to get and would start to ferment halfway through the jug: fluffy body, zippy bitterness, and spritzy. Tons of citrus flavor with some tropical notes.
Peace and bacon grease
