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. A golden color with a white head. A strong hoppy aroma. The fruit come through at the finish of a bitter bite. A nice full body with a rich finish.

JorisPPattyn (7974) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2013
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.

djd07 (3699) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2013
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.

HopRedHead (383) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2013
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.

drfabulous (4051) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 25, 2013
22 ounce bottle from Cook’s. Malty IPA with big fruity flavors. Slight bitterness. Somewhat too fruity and sticky for my tastes.

jstraw (1929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2013
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.

bhensonb (11255) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours rather orange with a yellowish beige head. Broad fruity aroma palate. Med minus body. It’s hoppy, spicy, lots of caramel. Quite a bit of fruit too, and there is a bit of heat. It finishes caramel, fruit, hop, and goes sweet to bitter in a few heartbeats. Lingering bitterness. Quite tasty.

maneliquor (3156) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Orange pour with a small white head. Nose is weird. Cheesy...like blue cheese. Changes a little once it warms. Musky hops. Heavy hops and light spice. Orange focus. Weird finish - maybe wheaty. Wouldn’t pick it as a wheat ipa. Solid
