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.

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.

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 (5503) - 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.

Very hoppy, bitter, biscuity. Oranges, pretty good stuff. Alright but overrated

Smells like IPA, new car, and alcohol. Deep orange gold and opaque. Solid lacing and head retention. Tastes like a big IPA but the hops have a unique licorice and rye whiskey character that I haven’t had too much of. The taste changes a lot from start to finish and the transition from note to note is slow so you notice everything. A lot of licorice and anise/ouzo as it goes back. Aftertaste is similar with bourbon/rye whiskey. Excellent structure and great taste.

Aroma is sweet & surgary w/ a slight hoppy scent. Taste is also sugary & sweet, also a slight citrus flavor, very suddle hop presence. The abv is very present. This beer is tasty none the less. I like more hop forward Ipas.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops, some pale malts, and a little caramel and wheat and spices. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops. Average texture. A pretty good beer, with a nice blend of the two styles.

Atom (1759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bomber pours a bright clear orange with a medium khaki head. Aroma of hops with tropical and citrus fruits. Taste starts off with fruits then heavy bitterness and alcohol. Yeah the finished poorly.

Cybercat (3984) - Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber with a fairly thick pale golden-wheat head. Strong aroma is quite fruity, mainly orange with some apple and lemon, and a wheaty hint. Flavor is quite hoppy for a wheat, a little bitter, with wheaty and fruity notes, a hint of yeast. Finish has hay, malt, fruity and - whoa, now there’s the hop bitterness, like an angry bobcat scampering down your throat. Quite an item!

Very good beer! Strong hoppy taste but not over powering. Great aroma and smooth finish.
