3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy yellow with about two fingers of white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, spices, very floral. Taste is perfume like and sweet with low bitterness. Finish is abrupt. Body is light, somewhat creamy. More a wheat or a saison than an IPA in my opinion.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy pale yellow color with a large soapy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was lemon, pepper and was a bit yeasty. the flavor was musty, tart and a bit dry with notes of coriander, lemon and vague fruity hops. Medium length tart and musty finish with lingering coriander and lemon. Medium body. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: hazy pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma is light citrus, light pine hoppiness with a little yeast, corriander and honey. Flavor is sweet-tart with lemon, grapefruit, honey, malt, grass, yeast, and a light corriander. The flavors seem a bit divided and almost in contention to get the spotlight. There is a lot of flavor here, some nice others not so, but a good attempt and still a decent drinking beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale yellow color with a creamy white head. Aroma of citrus and Belgian yeast. Creamy mouth feel with citrus, yeast, wheat, and a hint of hops. Very nice summer beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy and yellow with a medium light head that leaves some oily lacing. Tons of lemon on the nose with some citrus hops. Bitter lemon flavor. Eh, not hoppy enough to be called an IPA but not very interesting otherwise.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at a Colorado repís home keg, this pours hazy straw, with a thick soapy head that leaves slathering lace. The nose has lemony citrus and some yeast strains. Definite lemon and yeasty esters upfront, with a wheat and grain showing up mid-palate, followed by hop presence in the finish. Some light grainy bitters linger appropriately. This feels more like a "hoppy wit" than an IPA, as the body doesnít really support it. This isnít to say that itís not delicious, because it is tasty and well-balanced. I just think the IPA moniker is not exactly what the brew intends. Still very enjoyable!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lazy yellow pour, bright white head. Ugh, cilantro in beer = soap. I hate really dislike it in a wit, and this is no exception. The hop aroma actually isnít bad, very fruit forward, but then the soapy corriander ruins it. Oh well.

January 2012. On tap at the brewpub in Portland. Golden yellow with a white head. Mix between a wit and an IPA. Intersting concept. The hops makes it intersting and it really works.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is pale straw and cloudy with thin white foam cap. Aroma is lemony citrus with a hint of esters from the Belgian yeast. Taste is slight bit of pale malt into slightly tart lemon with a subtle hop bite on the end. Bitterness is more in line with a pale ale than an IPA. Mouthfeel is fairly light considering the wheat. Finish is dry with nice clean bitterness. Overall, this feels like an American wheat thatís trying to be an IPA but not quite there. I think an American ale yeast would have been better served to accomplish that than the Belgian yeast
