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.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Pours clear gold with a couple inches of white head. Aroma is light pine, light citrus. Taste is earthy, resin, mild bitterness. Body is very thin, lacking in carbonation. Overall there are no off flavors or aromas, just nothing very noteworthy whatsoever. Decent at best.

On tap at GTMW 2015, pours a amber orange with a thin white head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma is of slight hops, not a ton of fruit and hops come through, the flavor is also very light, not much on the front end but has a slight bitter finish, meh.

12oz bottle thanks to secret Santa, pours a hazy golden/orange with a large off-white head. Subdued resinous hoppy aroma, with malt and wheat. Taste similar to aroma, faded.

Look: Nice. Good white foamy head. Smell: Strong piney hops. Getting a sense Iím going to be bowled-over. Taste: Tastes like it smells. Strong hops up front, little substance otherwise. Feel: Somewhat dry. Overall: Iíve tried many examples of this style, but the problem Iím having is consistency. Hop content varies so much from beer to beer within the style that itís hard to get a grip on what an American IPA is. Iíd probably put this with Dogfish Headís 90 Minute as a DIPA. Needs more character to be an AIPA, IMO.

On tap at Q39 in KC. Clear bronze appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, floral notes and toasted grain. Similar flavor, adding a moderate hop bitterness and light malt sweetness. Pretty average for an IPA, not bad overall.

Pint on tap. Clear copper with a lasting island of foam. Nose is resin, juicy orange and grapefruit, and a touch of caramel. Tastes the same with a touch of toast. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a good balance.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2015
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.

jsquire (4067) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2015
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.
