3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From one of the unique Green Flash bomber bottles. A big white soapy head leaves a lot of lacing. The beer is white gold and almost clear. A nice citrus aroma. This is a sweeter IPA that has some wheat smoothness. Citrus fruit flavors are dominant and do not include grapefruit. Some pepper and melon, too. Yeast sediment is tasted and felt in the mouth. Peaches and a little orange. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden body with a generous pillowy white head. Hops are the main player, but the wheat malt bill provides some interesting contrasts. Grapefruit, tangerine, pepper, are noticed in the aroma and flavor. Alcohol is a little strong tasting. That is really my only complaint. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Sidedoor. Filtered orange body. Thin off-white head. Bold new school hop tones. A very nice wheat IPA, doesn’t really have the creamy body of a Wit. Enjoyable. Has that spicy yeast feel of an American Saison at times. One the better balanced, though hop forward, examples of the style. Really good, well executed.
