3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 7-23-2015 at Acme Bar and Grill, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer is served with a very small beige head that mostly diminished, opaque dark golden body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, wheat, earthy, and fruity. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops, some wheat, and some malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this IPA is light bodied. A quaffable IPA for hopheads that has a lingering hoppy aftertaste and is worth trying.

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thick head. Dry wheat and dry hops. All of these IPAs really started to run together at this point in the trip. Flavor is dry wheat and citrus hops with a lightly sweet finish. [9/12/15]

Poured from the 6-pack of bottles, brown but orange in the light. I think that this one gets points for originality and strength, has IPA qualities and Dipa power, the fact that there is wheat in there doesn’t really take away from that.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle into pint glass. Nice thick tan head with an orange tinted brown amber color that cloudy. Nose is wheat, butter, grapefruit, caramel. Medium body, medium sweetness, high carbonation, medium bitterness. Some grapefruit lingers on the pallet. Seems just a bit off, otherwise a very well hopped wheat ale with some characteristics that remind me of an amber.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a brown orange with an off white head. Some bright citrus and caramelized two-row aroma. Bitter grassy hops and malts. It seems to get more grassy as it warms. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a bottle dated 6/23/3015.
Aroma is fairly malty with some caramel and toasted bread. Some medium light grapefruit, pine resin and floral hop notes.
Pours a hazy, reddish copper color with a medium sized, fairly thick, off white head that exhibits solid retention as it slowly recedes. Moderately high lacing and medium legs.
Flavor is moderately sweet with quite a bit of caramel and toasted bread. Some light burnt sugar and cracker malt notes as well. The sweetness recedes and a moderately strong bitterness takes over. Medium resin, woody and floral hop notes with some light grapefruit. A hint of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Wheat adds a nice creaminess. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, this is a pretty disappointing IPA. I don’t understand how a wheat IPA can be so dark and malty. Lots of bitterness but where are the hop flavors and aromas?

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy dark orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The sharp mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of wheat citrus hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 Bottle. Aroma is strong wheat and floral hops with a little tropical fruit too. Tastes very floral. Light sweetness, light bitterness. Moderate wheat taste and some lingering tropical fruit and tea hops. Good.
