COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique surprise cross-pollinates the classic American wheat beer with an American Pale Ale. What grows next is a fruitfully unfiltered union with a delightful hop aroma, a pleasant citrus hop flavor, and a beautifully balanced finish that leaves other ales hoppy green with springtime envy.

KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a rich golden honey color with a large (2-3 finger) rocky white head that mostly diminished into a fluffy puddled residue that created excellent sheets of lace on the glass. The aroma upfront was bold and hoppy of a citrus hop, a straw like malt and a moldy yeast with a notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a decent dose of wheat. The taste was very yeasty and a bit malty with a note of caramel from the onset. It then progressed into a nice bitter hoppy flavor with a strong citrus note and a bit of wheat at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow, allowing for the hoppy grapefruit taste to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a bit heavier than light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall an IPA with a really nice wheat characteristic and a wonderful hoppy aftertaste.

Light like a Belgian cloudy with a thick fine head. Light aroma and a slightly tart flavor.

Fratto (2589) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Bottle from the Eastchase Majestic. Orange yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is pretty weak. A little bready and hoppy. Taste is hops, citrus, and grains.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 26, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2010 Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. Odd (as per name) collection of characteristics: citrusy hop aroma; generically fruity malt flavor; a bit of pepper and clove; quite a lot of sourness in the middle; a long, bitter, dry finish. I didnít get much wheat in this beer. I liked it a lot, but Iím not sure why.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2010
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a hazy amber gold with a large white head. Light wheat, some musk, and a faint citrus zest note. Thin and watery, not living up to the nose, which wasnít overly promising to begin with. Sweet. Finishes up with a grainy weird bitterness, more musty musk, and a bit of a vegetal note.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Pours hazy yellow gold with a white head. Aroma is banana, bubble gum and citrus. Flavor is light crisp wheat with a nice bitter finish and a little citrus that shows up more as you drink. Not bad, an easy drinking hoppy wheat brew.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Medium gold pour with white head. Nose was slight pale malt and hopcitrus, with the same flavor,m not much complexity, and a bit watery on the palate.

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Pours a light golden with little carbonation. Aroma is of wheat. Initial flavor is bold but finishes light. Wish it had a tad more hop..

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2011 Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a small white head. Aromas of orangepeel, peaches, and clove. Slightly bitter citrus peel flavor, along with oranges, spices, and some fruit sweetness. A little thin, with low carbonation, but an easy drinker. Good. Re-rated 1.29.11, bottle from seasonal 12-pack. Pours hazy copper with a small fluffy white head. Aromas of sweet pine, papaya/tropical fruit, and rock candy. The flavor is pine and floral hops, slightly sweet, with some funky fruit notes. Medium carbonation and medium to full body make this pretty drinkable. This is pretty nice, and really very different from my first rating (and what I remember). Makes me wonder if I got a shit bottle the first time, but this batch is pretty solid; hoppy, fruity, a little sweet, and sessionable. 8/3/7/3//14.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Swalden28) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of toasted grain, wheat, honey, and florals. Flavor of wheat, herbs, and light citrus.
