3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine. Not much more than a heavy barleywine-like sweetness in the aroma. Beautiful crystal clear golden yellow wit a soapy white head. The prickly alcohol heat seems to jump out right from the get go and seems much higher than 8%. A nice honeyed sweetness tries to subdue that heat with some success. Then a truly bitter green dankness sets in and overtakes them both with subtle, spicy herbaceousness and citrus pith and rind. That bitterness really sticks around along with a little residual sweetness for a nice, long boozy afterglow. The body is surprisingly light for all that’s packed in here (maybe due to the wheat?) and makes what could be a heavy, bloat-inducing beer quite easy to drink.

Twelve ounce bottle - poured orangey and slightly cloudy with what appears to be yeast particulates. Nice hop profile, however not outstanding in any way. Drinkable for sure but not repeatable.

Easy drinking imperial wheat IPA. Not as hoppy as a traditional IPA but still enjoyable for those that don’t like over the top IPA’s.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy deep copper and bronze coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of alcohol, sweetness, apricots, pungent tropical and floral hops and a mellow yeast note at the end. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong biting alcohol and earthy malt flavour up front that gives way to a smooth yeast flavour and a very nice hop kick from herbal and citrusey hops. Aftertaste shows a nice blend of malt/wheat and hops with a tropical sweetness and a bit of a herbal and dry oaky kick at the end from yeast. Overall, a nice and rather complex wheat-based IPA with not too many traditional wheat flavours going through, but light and airy, for sure. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Zupan’s in Portland, Oregon (Belmont St Location) on 07-December-2013 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on the opposite end of this country on 01-April-2014.
