3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance :Amber gold wheat with fine haze , poured smallish top.
Aroma:Strong , soap like hops , west coast hop character that overpowers wheat accent, rosy and citric.
Flavour/Palate: A lot happening here. Citric hops, fruity touches . Green bitters float till very end. Sweet malts and wheat are present but they play secondary role . Soft, smooth warming alcohol. Neat brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Grapefruity hops and tight cereals coalesce with the wheat’s leveled tartness. Well built and well organized, this is a strong yet drinkable pint of Americana worthy of a celebration.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the hazy blond.
-Alcohol warms up the back end, but doesn’t step on any flavors.
-Carbonation remains comfortable while managing to lift most flavors.
-Dry hay emerges from the maltiness.

Poured a cloudy deep amber color with a nice medium sized white head. Ctirus fruit aroma. Flavor is a light lemon flavor with alcohol present and very bitter with out much else. Very dissapointing.

It’s a good beer. And mighty strong. Stronger then your friends worse body odor after playing sports non stop for five days without showering or changing his/hers shirt or putting on any form of deodorant.
....but it’s good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sampled on 11/8/06: Pours a well-carbonated clear copper bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Floral grapefruity hoppy aroma has some mild wheat and pale malty character. Body starts fairly full with a big, tart grapefruity hoppiness and semi-sweet wheaty character. Not bad for a "double" American wheat.

Ehhhh. It’s okay. extremely clear, white head, orange yellow color typical of imperial ipas, but lighter. citrusy smell, beer is bitter and boozy. Don’t think I would buy this again because it was not very interesting, but its not that bad.
