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.

Very similar to the Ninkasi Triceratops DIPA. Cloudy, apricot color and a thin head. Very complex concoction of citrus and pine hops that had me as confused as the Grinch on Christmas, but delighted nevertheless. Shared with friends who weren’t used to brews of this nature, but it was well received.

On tap at Beer Market in Vernon Hills. Pours a golden yellow with a white head, nice drops of lace. Aroma has heavy syrupy pine and citrus. Taste is of overripe fruits, salty bitter citrus, pine.and resin. With alcohol. All hops, but ... who needs malt anyway. Finishes overbitter. Likin’ the brash stuff.

Bottle, this ale had a hazy orange pour with a slight red near the sides of the glass, it had a two to three finger white and faint off-white head that lowered to a thin cover and ring, it left nice spots and fingers of bubbles on the glass, there was a loose, thin layer of sediment that flowed around when the bottle were poured, the aromas were generous orange fruit with faint lemon citrus, spice and floral hops, toasted malt, faint bread, malt and fruit sweetness, it had flavors of big orange fruit with spice and grass hop, toasted malt and faint bread, fruit and bread-malt sweetness, the finish had hop bitterness that lingered with a orange-lemon citrus ending, the mouth feel was thick and creamy with average carbonation, this drink had lots of orange fruit and citrus with toasted malt, I liked this combination, a nice drink.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2013
Trübes orange, kleiner, wenig konstanter Schaumteppich. Tropisches IPA Aroma nach Grapefruit, Zitrone und Ananas. Süßmalziger Beginn, Kandis und Honig, aber auch leicht hefig. Die Fruchtigkeit wird vom floralem Hopfen verdrängt; im Abgang auch leicht alkoholisch wärmend. Gut, aber nicht überragend.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 18, 2013
Bomber. A clear medium amber/orange body, with a large, frothy, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, caramel, biscuits), moderately hoppy (resin, pine, grapefruit), with notes of exotic fruits, alcohol, hints of vegetables and butter. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, very long finish with heavy bitterness, moderately to heavily alcoholic. I wouldn’t say it’s bad, but it’s too sharp and rough and abrasive to be really enjoyable. Boozy as well. Not much wheat character, at least in this bottle. Fair, but tough to drink in large amounts.

Short white head on a dull orangey body. Some soft banana in the nose that you don’t seem to pick up in the taste, nice bitterness with warming alcohol, drinkable...

I think this was supposed to be a wheat beer. Or an IPA. Or something in the middle. didnt pull it off. wheat, bad hops. Nothing worth trying again.
