This reddish hued IPA owes its slightly sweet, bready character to a prodigious use of wheat malt. This is balanced with an aggressive use of Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial, and Crystal hops, giving Wheat Thresher IPA a pronounced hop punch.

Pours an orange amber with a medium bubbly off white head that laced. Aroma of freshly zested oranges, floral and piney notes along with Cheerios. Flavor of pine and grapefruity hop notes, Cheerios and a touch of crystal malt sweetness.

On tap at the brewery. Comes golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, malt, and florals. Taste is grapefruit, pine, grain, caramel malt, and florals. Very nice!

beastiefan2k (2804) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2013
10oz draft. Yellow golden thick color. A light wheat character behind a wall of mixed hops. Comes off mostly like Sweet and citric hops. Good stuff but does not tickle my love bone. Not much to say about the beer, a pretty straight up beer.

jcnielsen (2550) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange color with white head. Kind of has a light body with sweet, malty, wheaty flavor followed by a nice hoppy, citrus flavor. I wouldn’t quite call this "imperial" but regardless, its pretty tasty.

theisti (3451) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Shaker pint draft at the brewpub, as well as a few more pints out of a growler. Pour is mostly clear golden, amber with a nice light reddish undertone. The head is off white, and pretty lasting. Aroma is a soft floral sweet citrus hoppiness, balanced nicely with a gentle grain wheat. As it warms, there is a warmer sweetness, honeyish. Taste is the nose, sweet citrus floral hoppiness nicely blended with the soft grain wheat body of the malt. The honey is a touch more pronounced in the taste, though still is behind the hops and wheat. Palate is medium bodied, very soft mouhtfeel. Carbonation is on the low level, aftertaste is quick and clean. Very drinkable beer, nice.

Indra (2700) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Lightly sweet, fruity aroma, full of honey, bready malt sweetness, citrus, faint bubblegum and pine. Clear medium sunset red-amber color, with a fine, lasting head. Flavor is generously hoppy throughout, with lemony citrus and pine, combining with sweet, caramel, honeyish malts, and finishing with a burst of hop bitterness and flavor. Oily, resinous, generously effervescent palate, body is medium. Fresh and tasty.
