Bottle. Murky goldenbrown color, fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of bright grapefruit and pineapple, some banana. Taste is earthy grapefruit, very bitter finish. Interesting flavor combo.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
A bit of a dull colour. Thin head. The aroma has some overripe fruity but also some mellow hop. The palate has lots of hops and is quite bitter.

Pours a nice cloudy golden colour. Grapefruit with citrus undertones comes to the fore on the nose. On the palate a bit too sour for my liking for an IPA. Has a lingering bitterness which is not too overpowering.

Pours a very light yellow, slightly hazy with creamy one finger head. Aroma is green bananas and a bit of butter and honey on toast. Taste is like the aroma. It seems there is some percentage of wheat in the bill, which I’m normally not a fan of, but the bitterness kicks in nicely at the end and cleans everything up nicely. It starts a little creamy but quickly dissipates leaving a slight numbing effect similar to that of juniper berries in Chinese "Ma La" spicy dishes. Overall, I find the flavours are thin enough that they don’t hide the relatively modest ABV. A wheat beer fan may quite like this.
