Tap at Happy Gnome. Slightly hazy orange pour with a sticky white head. Very interesting - wheat, tropical fruit, hop, some caramel sweetness, and some earthy bitterness. Nice!

Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours cloudy amber with a short off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a full-bodied pale maltish wheat flavor with a slight amount of ester fruitiness. A platypus of a beer, yet pretty tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good, dense, whipped eggwhite-like yellowish head, slowly collapsing over well-carbonated, surprisingly clear orange-amberish beer. Pungent hopsnose of exotic fruit, but also strong background aroma of vegetable frying oil, sweetish. Banana, babyfood. Bitter, hopoils with just a hint at fruity sweetness in the background, not coming through. As if canned exotic fruitmix had been covered with quinine - or iso-alpha acids, of cours. Bitter melon, cakebottom. Very slick hopoily, rather well-bodied. Discreet alcoholwarming. A bit harsh at face value, but it grew on me. Could have another like that.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with paperthin white head that diminishes to nothingt. The aroma is a strong grapefruit and floral. Medium mouthfeel with a strong bitter hop and fruit with nice lingering bitter finish. Really enjoyed this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Basement, fruity/floral hops and a toast/caramel malt aroma. Not much wheat, maybe a dash of banana. Nose seems unbalanced. Taste is better: far more IPA than wheat though. Fruity hops and caramel malt flavours. Solid hop bitterness. Was definitely drinkable, just not sure it was a true wheat IPA.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Orange with good, creamy white head / Bright nose of citrus, fresh cut pine, weed / Full body, malty, chewy, very sweet, biting hops, bitter finish under the fruity body / Flavors of cut pine, orange peel, grapefruit, resin / Overly fruity and malty?, yielding a somewhat muddy result, but still a solid 2ipa.
