COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not sure what you just drank? Wheat beer? IPA? Yes, it is. This mysterious ale boasts aromas of tropical fruit, a playful bitter edge, and the body and mouthfeel of an American hefe. Big alcohol and rich white wheat make this unfiltered ale accessible to all types of pallets.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, clear orange pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of big orange peel, grapefruit, sweet candied orange, some biscuit, spice, hints of banana, clove in there as well, slight fusel notes but pretty hidden. Taste was a nice mix of sweet white fruits, with orange, peach, some grapefruit, into spice, lemon, biscuit, and caramel, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

Bomber with a cool label. Hazy, yellow-orange pour with a head that disappears. Big aroma of pine, citrus, and straight-up resinous. Tropical fruits in the flavor, with a light bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

unclemattie (4033) - Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2013
22oz bottle. Clear, orange\amber color. White head. Overwhelming nose of citrusy hops. Loads of citrus, hops, and some pineapple juice scent as it warms. Overall aroma smells like a dry hopped Double IPA. Flavor of sharp hops. More hops on the palate on top of the already hop floral nose. Hops, hops, hops. Under all of the hop bitterness, there is a silky\sticky malt backbone that has flavors of pale malts and puffed wheat. Wheat malt and citrus, finishes with a bit of alcohol as well. This beer is definitely not a Wheat Ale, this is an Imperial/Double IPA for sure. (3655)

BMan1113VR (7787) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle. No freshness date. Pours with a lightly hazed deep orange hued body with a lasting bone white head. Aromas are sweet and boozy. Very strong canned/caramelized pineapple, strong strong strong fusel alcohol. Lemon, citrus, papaya, pine and resin. Sum: sweet, boozy, but with nice hops. Flavors are astringent/tannic grain, soil, earthy, sweet boozy, messy. Very hot, mildly bitter, grainy. Extreme fusel alcohol for a 9% abv beer. Hop character is a background note to the intensely harsh and solvent like alcohol. Estery, rough fermentation. Quite brash to be honest. Mild tropical fruit and resin, sweet. Lively carb, warming, astringent, fuller bodied.

Reynolds314 (2089) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Golden pour with aroma was citrus and biscuits. Taste is a bit caramel heavy with some citrus and wet leaves. A bit to malty and sweet. Almost tastes like a nicely hopped malt liquor. Odd and not terrible but i wont have it again.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bomber from Randalls in Fairview. I rolled this bottle and the sediment hung together like a Star Trek nebula and did its best to defy gravity. A hazed bright golden honey beer with a light gold head of a finger and a half. An aroma of wheat with multi fruit essence. A definite quick hitting bitterness is tasted. There is a strong malt backbone that is nice under all the tartness and fruitiness. This drinks like a Double IPA with big alcohol and big hop tartness. If the fruit is yellow or orange then it is in this beer. Pineapples, oranges, grapefruit, etc. Call this a Wheat Ale or a Double IPA. Whatever it is it is pretty tasty.
