3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at the Seattle Taphouse. Rating from notes. Pours a clear shiny golden color with a fading foam head. I love the hop pun beer names by the way. I hope this is a trend that sees no end any time soon. I have a few ideas for some myself. Very wheat winish flavor. Grainy finish. Sweet, citrus, and flavorful. Good beer here.

Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow orange with a white head. Beer was a little to carbonated. Aroma had nice mixture of citrus and pine with undertones of wheat. Taste was bitter earthy floral and citrusy pine with light malt sweetness. Refreshing

Poured from 1pint 6fl oz bottle. Golden orange with white head. Subtle balance between the sweet and bitter, a very mild funk sits in the background. A little citrus, a little pine, a little malt.

definitely more double ipa than wheat beer, and suffers in comparison (and price) to the brooklyn-schneider hopfenweisse. For $10, this ended up a pretty average beer. Some of that may be due to it being bottled in August, but the next beer we had from them was a belgian ipa bottled in may - and it seemed fresher. this one had some bitter hops in it, but they were not floral, or very aromatic. some citrus and wheat came through in the flavor. even if i see a fresh one, i’ll pass on this in the future."

Bottle from Whole Foods, Lynnwood
cloudy deep blond color with generous compact head. Piney and pungent hopping, with lean and elegant pale malt backbone, plenty of fruits and hop resins.
Perfect IIPA, fresh, easy to drink.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Uber. Pours slightly cloudy golden orange with medium white lacy head. Aroma is sweet pale malt with big citrusy and floral hops on the back. Taste is sizable rich grainy wheat malt, with big bitter hop-driven finish that lingers bitter. Notes of citrus and fruity floral hops standout. For some reason I’ve recently become a big fan of wheat IPAs, and this is an outstanding example. Very drinkable beer in spite of the substantial abv.

Slight haze, big fruity aroma, orange. The body is big, thick, lots of bright orangey hop but also a lot of malt as well. Bit sticky but I like it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a hazy orange/amber colored body with a one finger white foamy head. Light lacing slides practically immediately into the body.
The smell had some orange, some tangerine, just a tad of wheat.
The taste had all of the previously mentioned flavors with a touch of oiliness, orange aftertaste, dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a medium, and was slightly sessionable. Carbonation still holds some strength even though I’m having this a little older than I probably should. Carbonation is good for the style and for me - pretty much spot on.
Overall, a wheat DIPA, hey I like the idea, and I will definitely look for this one every summer that I live in Alaska.
