This bold, blonde American IPA employs a healthy dose of wheat malt and generous amounts of Crystal, Centennial, and Citra hops. The hops provide a great citrusy bouquet and abundant notes of grapefruit and orange, while the wheat malt provides a crisp tartness to this lighter-bodied IPA.

The beer pours a very clear light orange color with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends light malts and resin hops, and the taste is mildly bitter and a touch sour with an aftertaste that is grassy in addition to resiny. The palate fuses a medium-light body, lively carbonation, and a slightly sticky texture. Overall, the beer is one-dimensional, and that one dimension isnít that great.

Deep golden color with a bit of a haze. Creamy eggshell head. Soft citrus hops nose. This is an easy drinking hop forward beer with a bit of a bite. Bready malts with strong orange peel, red grapefruit juice and some tangerine citrus notes and a strong grapefruit rind bite in the finish. Interesting take on the IPA.

From the bottle, the pour is clear, light orange with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma is hops a little skunky hops, but no overly distinct flavors. The taste is crisp not over hopped, but bitter. Not a lot of depth to the beer, just primarily hops and water and very little malts at all. Mouthfeel watery. There is an lingering bitter after taste.

From a bottle. Aroma is of grassy, dank hops. Taste is more of the same with a copper finish. Bitterness on the palate. All in all, a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

justsayswell (172) - Mission, Kansas, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Pours a clear amber with a medium off white head. Moderate lacing. Nose is dank hop, dry crackery malt and maybe a hint of rye. Medium mouthfeel, just a touch slick. Resinous and floral hops. A little tropical fruit and a little pale malt on the finish. Iím not really getting any wheat. Finishes dry and piney. Ok.
