Pour is a hazy bright golden/yellow. Thin white head leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is funky yeast, wheat, and lemon. Taste is wheat, pilsner malt, lemon, some spice, and some funk. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Not very bitter for an IPA. More along the lines of a hopped up Belgian Wit.

On tap at the bungalow. Color is an awesome yellow/neonish green with a decent light, thin head. Not typical clout but cool. Super funky ipa aroma. Funk, typical hops, citrus and oddly wheat grain. Tastes a little looked what a blonde wit would taste like if you threw hops in at the end of the boil. Meh. Medium light body. Light watered grapefruit flavor, Lemony, and intriguing funk

bright light yellow with thin white head. aroma is more lemon than expected, definitely abounding in various citrus (from the citra hops and orange) aromas with a hint of spice. the dank hops are in the flavor a little more. aroma slightly wit leaning, flavor pretty well balanced. light, refreshing. good summer brew. still hoping to find this in 6-packs... 8/31 finally showed up in bottles. A steal at $7 or so per sixer!"

2014 bottle. Pours a light straw color. Taste is fairly light. Some citrus with a light pine bitterness and a hint of bubblegum from the yeast.

Tap @ Euclid Hall. Hazy yellow with nice white head and decent lacing. Smells fresh and lemony/grapefruity with a little grass. A little coriander and light bitterness.

Transfer from BA review on 6-11-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a big billowy white head of three fingers. The head very slowly fades over time leaving a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell-The aroma is heavy of Belgian yeast and malts with a large hit of lemon and wheat. Mixed with these aromas are some lighter notes of a banana and a bit of a coriander spice.
Taste- The taste begins with a Belgian malt and lemon flavor upfront. Along with these taste so too comes some nice wheaty flavors which maintain a base taste for the brew. As the flavor advances the lemon grows stronger and slightly more sour to the end. A bit of grassiness and graininess begins developing in the taste more toward the end leaving a lemony and grainy flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average overall. The moderate characteristics of the two are rather nice for the lemon, wheat and yeasty characteristics of the brew and make for a rather nice drinker.
Overall- A pretty nice flavorful brew overall with a decent blend of graininess and a lemony taste, although slightly low on the hop profile for an IPA.

I didn’t think this was a very strong beer. It does have an above average hop flavor but the overall beer was very mild and smooth. Kind of a wheaty feel.

Reminds me of Boulevard’s 80-acre, but with Belgian yeast--a beautiful balance of tart and smooth. Very delicious and almost impossible to sip.

18th July 2014, on-tap pint in Atomic, Las Vegas. Cloudy, very pale yellow with a thin white head. Served a bit too cold, so no aroma for a while, but as it warmed a little the citrus aromas began to appear. Slight yeastiness along with the citrusy taste. Refreshing first pint of the evening, but not a repeat order.
