COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with wheat and pilsner malt; this IPA displays beautiful citrus aromas from Cascade and Citra hops that meld with the esters of Belgian yeast. Think thirst quenching hopped-up wit beer with enough IBUs to warrant the IPA name.

mensch (265) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Cloudy light yellow with a fleeting white head. Lemon candy aroma, a hint of spice. Complex flavor profile, more lemon and spice, hop flavor and some belgianyness. Light, dry finish. Very much like a white with lots o’ hops. Interesting, refreshing, even tasty, but not totally cohesive.

DrSilverworm (8185) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2015
12oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Best by 9/15/15. Mostly hazy golden, slight orange color. Nice thin sort of foamy off-white head. Leaves nice reaches of lace, good retention. Floral hop aroma, kind of spicy, orange zest. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Kind of mild dry taste, with a bit of a spicy bite. Medium-plus body. Lighter carbonation, kind of rough with the spiciness, which holds it back. Nice enough flavor though.

scarletfire65 (1072) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle at home. Hazy pale golden. Aroma is funky Belgian yeast and all that comes with it in a wheat beer....overripe banana, clove, bubble gum, horseblanket. Light bodied, refreshing wheatty palate. Good spice palate with more funk and yeast. Dry finish, but hardly in the IPA family. Could pass for a dry hopped saison.

triplehopped (51) - - MAY 24, 2015
Poured an opaque gold/yellow with a medium white head that dissipated slowly into moderate lacing. Aroma was citrus with a hint of pine. Taste was surprisingly light in bitterness. The mouthfeel was fairly smooth with a slightly bitter, citrus finish. Overall, a decent IPA; refreshing and easy going.

tennisjoel (1209) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Pour is cloudy golden with a minimal white head. Think emergen-c or alka seltzer. Aromas of clove, honey, banana, citrus. Flavor is good, but I wish it was stronger. A little watery. OK; I’ve tasted better, but do enjoy this style quite a bit.

MadShaolin (100) - - MAY 10, 2015
Distinct belgian smell. Banana and bubblegum. Hazy orange, looks like a saison. Catch a few hop notes in there but the belgian flavors rule out most of it. Saisons seem hoppier. Pilsner malt throws some complex elements in there that mix with the hops and belgian yeast. Complex, but not striking the balance to be called an IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Super lemony aroma. Pours slightly orange gold with a tiny bit of white head. Taste is really bright and citrus. Not super bitter but does have the hop flavor. Nice spicy yeast flavors. Light body and med carb.

katrinaez (423) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2015
Light feeling and tasting but good. Beat combo that you would want for summer. Flavor refreshing but again sort of low, with banana and citrus. A dimensional beverage that offers sweet and dry levels perfect for relaxing. Tap.

Yellow hazy color. Lemon grass aroma. Sweet lemon flavor. Very light eatery beer. Good for a summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
