3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a weizen glass. Pours hazy golden with a tall white head. The head fades slowly to... and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are huge notes of grapefruit and pine, along with a touch of pale malts. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout, with a huge amount of grapefruit. Notes of wheat and pale malts are also present, but take a back seat to the grapefruit. The finish is long, bitter and citric. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a dry texture and intense carbonation. Overall, an interesting brew--light and dry with wheat on one hand, and intensely citric on the other. The combination of wheat and IPA works surprisingly well. 2011-10-06

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is basically a wheat IPA. It’s rather hoppy with a sharp bitter finish and a noticeable wheat character. The aroma is dominated by citrusy, grassy hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I tried this beer on September 23, 2011 after obtaining a bottle from a friend. The beer pours a hazy orange gold with a thin tan head that lasts. Aroma is citrusy hops with a hint of wheat and yeast. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is citrusy hops, peppery spice, and some sweet malt tones. I enjoyed it a great deal.

650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours golden in colour, some suspended yeast. Smallish white head, a little lace on the glass. Aroma and taste are wheaty, lots of sharp bitter, resiny hops. Dynamite!!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright straw yellow with a big frothy white top. Aroma is slightly subdued but mostly wheat and citrus hop. Taste is a wallop of citrus hop with a nice wheat base. Not your typical wheat beer but this one is pretty good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks to jerc. Pours lightly cloudy yellow, 2-finger foamy white head, very persistent, fine lacing. Nose is pretty citrus hops, lemon and grapefruit predominantly, with hints of wheat behind, nice smelling beer! Flavours of grapefruit, spice, creamy body, nice bitter finish. I could drink this all day! Fun fact: Consumed while I was brewing a 4.5%, heavily hopped, wheat beer. Hopefully mine turns out as nice!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A golden weiss with a thick onctuous lacing off white head. In aroma, a superb fragrant citrusy and pinhey c-hops, with smooth fruity esters. In mouth, a pinhey resinous weizen, grassy and floral, delicious, light clover honey, wow! Bottle from LCBO, tasted Sept. 6 2011

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This light wheat ale pours a slight hazy golden colour with a white foam head that leaves big chunky soapy lace. Tiny miniature pulp sediments floats around. The nose is fresh with piney hop aromas. The hop is not as present in the taste, as the flavours are mild (being a 4.5% ABV brew). Still, this makes this beer easy-drinking and quite refreshing. The flavours are mostly of grapefruits with the light wheat in the background. Seems to start off watery, but gets much stronger as sips are taken, with stronger bitterness and lingering hops. Kind of an APA mixed with a weizen. A pretty interesting ale.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 re-rate: bottle from LCBO. Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Wonderful "American IPA hop explosion" aroma. Light tropical/citrus fruit flavour, grassy notes, with a bitter finish. Nice surprisingly full body with good carbonation. Much better than I remember it being a couple years ago.
