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.

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.

Draft at Mudville9 NYC. Pours a cloudy lemon bready yeasty wheaty color with the same taste. Has a hipness to it as well but more wheaty. Easy drinking for the abv. Very good

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.

Bottle. Citrus bomb. A bit heavy on the malt side, which brings my rating down a bit. Could be balanced a better.

22oz bomber from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours a pale and cloudy. Citrus and mango fruit nose. Bold flavors of grapefruits and peach. The wheat must make the malts more delicate, which seems to mix better with the bitterness. Spicy bite in the finish. Very refreshing for such a big beer. Damn good!

Bottle @ Steve’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a thin white head. Soapy herbal hoppy, a touch tropical fruity, tangerine aroma. Fairly bitter, quite soapy, light citrusy, grassy, orange flavor. Bleh.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with thin white head, thanks Aaron! Aroma brought notes of soap, caprylic acid notes, with hints of white fruits, hints of oak, slight grass, hints of orange peel. Taste is a mix of white fruit, lots of caprylic acid, hints of white fruit, slight grass, orange, finishing fairly bitter, slightly soapy. Too bad.
