On tap @ the brewery. Pours a light amber color with a thick fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, and honey. Taste is of sweet honey, wheat, with a nice grapefruit bitterness. I really enjoyed this one!

Hazy white gold pour. Sweet hoppy aroma. Crisp sweet and citrusy flavor. The name scared me since I usually donít like beers with honey OR wheat in the title, but this was pretty darn good!

Pours a golden amber with minimal head retention. LOADS of solids came out in the pour. Aroma has a fruity malty-sweet smell. Taste is pretty pedestrian, minimal hops flavor with decent carbonation. Was otherwise undrinkable due to the sediment circling in the glass. Shameful.

On tap at the 20th Vermont Brewers Festival. Pale cloudy copper with an off white head. Grapefruit, lemon zest, wheat, buckwheat honey, semi-sweet malts with a hint of molasses. Moderate body and somewhat high carbonation, bittersweet with a nice dryness, grainy, some candied sugar, some yeast. Interesting combination of flavours but not sure I agree with everyone else that it worked well. Still worth trying.

Tasted via sample at Vermont Brewers Festival. This Honey IPA is only available via keg and growler at the Burlington, VT Magic Hat brewery (Artifactory) and at VT beer fests. When I saw the description, I just had to try it. Two of my favorite styles are Belgian Wheat with honey and IPAs. Tasting this is like taking a sip of an IPA and chasing it with your Belgian honey Wheat. It was sweet and hoppy. Overall, itís a pretty good beer especially for hot, humid summer time. Hoppy aroma. Golden color. Clear liquid. Minimal head. Light sweet. Light bodied.

Tap at the brewpub. Special seasonal beer im told. Clear golden pour, small white head. Great hoppy aroma, lots of citrus, especially lemon zest. Solid mouthfeel, and good carb. Finish is antad sweet from the extra honey, and the wheat comes through and adds slme great cereals, and malta to mkngle with the solid hops. Super drinkable and incredibly refreshing.
