12 oz. can from Oskar Blues in Brevard, NC. Pours a hazy orange-amber into the glass, with a soapy head that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose is grainy with floral and pine hops. Flavors are cracker, grains, a bit nutty and a bitter finish thatís dry and... well, "interesting" is the best word I can think of. Itís a sessionable quaff, and bold in the mouth, but medium-light bodied and active to the palate. This one is certainly different, but I donít hate the experimentation.

jbruner (2327) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2014
16oz can at Brevard tasting room. Pours a cloudy yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma is Belgian witbier mixed with piney hops. Taste is pretty much the same Belgian yeast, wheat, and a hoppy back end. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

ACHops (695) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2014
12 oz can from Fremont, served in a tulip. Pours pale orange copper with medium fluffy off-white head that laces well. Aroma is grainy lightly sweet caramel malt, with just a hint of herbal hops. Taste is similar: lightly sweet caramel malt, again with distinct grain notes: wheat, rye, and oat definitely present. Hops are there but only mildly bitter with light floral notes. Interesting as both of these breweries are typically heavy-handed (in a good way!) with the hops. Not sure what the story is on this collaboration, but a tasty result. Need to see more wheat IPAs, btw.

Ferris (4342) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Draft - Fresh pine and light citrus. Cloudy gold with a rich beige head. Nice light grapefruit and pine. Light and sessionable.

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
maxwelldeux (3681) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Draught, into a growler. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is great and extremely hoppy - I get some floral and pine elements to it, as well as just a hint of some pepper. Taste is light, and doesnít end up being too bitter, though you can get hints of the hop profiles from the nose. Really interesting beer.
