A: Pours a cloudy golden amber color with slightly underwhelming carbonation, likely due to its time sitting out unbottled. This (along with the serving glass) also hurts its head, both in terms of retention and lacing. The head (and some decent lacing) does appear after agitated swirling, however. S: Massive notes of tropical fruits; mango, papaya, pineapple, grapefruit, and the like. This is something Iíd expect from a good DIPA, not a ídinky wheat aleí. Thereís also some vaguely sweet, bready malt buried beneath the fruit explosion. T: Hoppy - but not in a generically bitter sense. Rather, it yanks out huge tropical fruit flavors without any oppressive bitterness. The wheat malt gives a unique sweetness combined with the hops...only thing is, this sweetness honest-to-God becomes cloying after about halfway. Even still, itís pretty good, but the first part is much better than the second. M: Well carbonated, betraying its initial weak carbonation appearance. The body is a little thick, and it finishes rather wet at first, transitioning into some dryness in the aftertaste. O: This is almost a tale of two beers. At first, itís one of the best beers Iíve ever had. Later, itís tiring hop/malt sweetness renders it merely ígoodí. Still a nice wheat IPA thatís a great value, even when itís less than fresh.

jhamp9 (1521) - Corinth, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours amber with a lasting white head. Great aroma with apricot, pine and grass. Taste is grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Almost too sweet but had a nice bitter balance.

PhillyBeer2112 (2710) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2012
Clear golden large bubbles, a little over filtered looking. Hoppy nose is fruity with tropical fruits (mango, pineapple) and a little sweaty. Flavor is balanced with a tropical fruit complement to a sweet caramel malt with a moderately bitter finish. Medium palate. A little zingy and tingly. Not bad.

Beer is goood. Apricots. Tastes a bit bitter like an ipa but not as in you face. Seems like on of those Le freak type ipa blends. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jayseppi (155) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Too much sweetness from the malt in the aroma for me, but the flavour is more nicely balanced with a good blast of hopping coming through. Itís got a smooth mouth feel and a lightness that makes this dangerously sessionable.

rich916 (84) - Rancho Cordova, California, USA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice bright orange with a small white head. Good lacing Nose of citrus, fresh hay, hops and some pine. Taste of citrus, grapefruit (pink?) and hops. Tiny bitterness on the end ties it together.

A nice IPA....Not too strong.. Nice smell of grapefruit to me. A good beer. Nice buzz off 2 of these. Best thing about this beer is the smell and nice finish. 7.5%...... nice

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours an ever so slightly hazy sunshine yellow color. Aroma is clean. Flavor is crisp, light maltiness initially, followed by a hint of wheat. Hops are prominent at the end, with notes of lemon zest, a bit of pine. Light bodied and ends with a lingering clean finish. Pretty nice easy sipping IPA, would be good on a Summer day.

The 7.5% alcohol is hidden behind this smooth and seductive IPA. The IPA genre is a bit decieving as the wheat and hops blend elegantly to produce less bitter, yet full flavored beverage. This is pure magical brewness unlike anything you have tasted. Now go out and get yourself a little sumpin sumpin!

Pours light gold Amber, with clean white, but quickly dissipating head. Aromatic hops and citrus lemon and grapefruit on the nose. Well balanced malt character with intense herbal hop bitterness, with strong citrus notes. Easy drinking, balanced and incredibly refreshing.
