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.

Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Pours very light cloudy yellow, almost murky with lots of particles. Nice white creamy head with good lacing that never quite diminishes. Minimal malt smell to speak of, with very strong grassy orange hop smell. Can also pick up some pineapple. Starts somewhat sweet - very bright, zesty taste and refreshing. Finishes slightly sweet with good bitterness; expected much more bitterness with all the hop smell. Nice long finish. Medium-bodied, thin texture and slightly bubbly on the tongue. Has a bit of an alcoholic mouthfeel. Great refreshing beer.

bottle poured in to tulip. Nice 1.5 finger white head. pours a crisp hazy golden yellow with good fizz. Hazy enough to not see through much like a wheat ale. Nice citrus aroma with floral notes as well as a hint of clove and dough. Definitely the banana scent of a hefe. Nice light tartness on the front with citrus notes continued throughout. light hoppy bitterness and the back that sticks for a few seconds. Medium dry mouthfeel and a very refreshing beer not typical of an IPA.

355ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from December 2013. Poured a pale amber colour with a slight haziness. Pretty good head and the flavour is refreshing.

12oz bottle pours straw yellow with a one finger white head and little lacing. Aromas of banana, citrus, Belgian yeast, and hints of lemon. Flavor is mild citrus with a slight peppery finish. Refreshing beer.

A bit confused by this high of a rating, because I found this to be a dulled down wit and IPA. Neither was pronounced nor even good. Itís only okay.

I agree with many other reviewers that it tasted more like a wit than an ipa. Big yeast, orange peel and just very faint hop notes. Still refreshing and a great summer beer.

More like a wheatbeer but doesn't detract from enjoyment. Fruity aroma, yeasty in flavour and maybe spritzy in mouthfeel. Not a lot of hops. Still a nice beer even if it isn't a true IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange with minimal head. Has a real wheaty smell and taste for something labeled as an ipa. Taste is very good. Some citrus in the taste. Honestly would have scored it better if it werent called an ipa. Just not seeing it

Tap pour from New Bohemia. Actually a really beautiful appearance for a beer Iíve had before and found underwhelming. Persistent head and lacing galore. Cloudy and golden. Aroma is mostly citrus but understated. Pretty refreshing this time around. Some banana but mild. The yeast takes center stage and shines. Mild hops. Easy to drink. Iím on board with the chainbreaker for now.
