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.

Encore: Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is bready, apricot. NIce, oily mouthfeel. Taste is apricot, mix of citrus (orange, lemon) with a subtle bitterness at the end. This is a little mild for an IPA but I really like it. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Nice hoppy aroma with some citrus and herbal notes. Fairly bitter, medium bodied. Hoppy finish, a bit harsh on the palate.

mackus2 (156) - Edison, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy orange gold with a nice kind of fizzy off-white head. Pine and citrus aromas, some wheat and yeasty rotten fruit. Taste has a tart stank and some nice fruit notes with a wheaty mouthfeel, medium body and a little sticky caramel. A nice twist on an IPA but it really does feel more like a Spring brew than a Winter one.

Slightly cloudy, between yellow and golden in color. Large white head. Fruity, citrus aroma with some hop character. Not much wheat to go around. Sweet flavor with not even bitterness for my tastes. Forgettable is the one word that comes to mind.

ChainGangGuy (4600) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Appearance: Pours a clouded, amber-gold body with a foaming, off-white head giving a lasting wispiness. Smell: Modest malts, pale and wheaty, beneath fragrant hop notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pine blossoms, and a bit of pineapple. Taste: A lightly bready, lightly sweet taste of tangy malted wheat and pale malts. I gotta say, even right at the beginning, the mouthfeel starts thinning out at a record pace. Hops yield citrus fruits, leaning towards tangerines, with some minor florals and ample bitterness giving this wheat ale an IPA leaning. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Essentially, it’s a passable wheat with a decent IPA hop profile. Maybe not a home run, but at least a well-played single.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2010 Bottle from an assorted 12 pack. This is a nice, sweet IPA with the hearty palate from the wheat. A hint of kiwi on the nose. On the slightly watery side, this beer acts as a nice session beer or a beer to drink with a meal that will not fill you up.

Dark gold amber with a thin lacy head. The aroma is orange and fruity. The flavor is mildly hoppy with an orange/citrus hint. The beer is full-bodied, chewy and makes the mouth water. Very good brew and not very hoppy, but a good IPA nonetheless.
