3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2010 Tasted on draft at City Beer. Pours cloudy orange with a thick white head that displays excellent retention. Nose is earthy hops with grapefruit, and a signature wheat aroma as well. Flavor is bitter up front with a solid malt backbone and some nice grapefruit peel bitterness on the back. Body is medium but kind of sticky with average carbonation and a long bitter finish.

Bottle thanks to someone. Pours with a hazy golden body and a white head. Aroma is hoppy, showcasing citrus, and mango. Also a nice grainy sweetness. The taste is grainy, wheat, and citrus. Nice hop profile. Well attenuated with lively carbonation.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a small, white head and a hazy golden body. Aroma of marijuana, orange and caramel. Very strong hops. Taste is hoppy, dank and sticky with tons of citrus and a back bone of caramel. Light carbonation, and a bit thin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weak aroma and dominated by a somewhat bland grapefruit rind bitterness. Hazy gold liquid with a thick off-white head. The aroma is a bit hard to pick out, but it’s mostly floral hops with a bit of wheat. The taste is quite bitter. Lots of grapefruit rind, some pine resin. Little delicacy. Little booze but a lot of astringency. All that said, it’s still rather refreshing and kinda enjoyable for a little while, but, ultimately, I’m not a fan.

bomber; clear dark orange with billowing cream white head; sharp bitter pine hops, lemons, grassy wheat, pinsol; light orange, creamy wheat, almost sticky, dry lemon and mildly astringent hop combination; dig the texture, but heavy hop and wheat doesn’t really come together for me: astringent nose and finish; lemon, sweet candy malt

22 oz. bottle - pours copper with thick white head; aromas of wheat, hops and lemons; really liked the nose with the fruity, bitter, wheat mix; drinks very bitter and a little harsh; floral and sweet, but flavors are a little strange and mildly metallic

Clear amber with a white head. Sweet, pungent, fresh ganja bud aroma. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Big ass bitter grapefruit hop flavor on a neutral malt base, only wheat i found here was in the smooth texture. Hop heads may love this brew, but it is a bit off balance for my palate.

Very hoppy aroma and the flavor to match. Lots of lemon and hints of tropical fruits. Wheat gives it a little more roundness than your typical IIPA without being very sweet. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep straw to light amber. Minimal white head. Lightly hoppy aroma and a bit grainy. Flavor is big hops right up front. Really surprised at how hoppy it is. Bitingly bitter but letting the hops shine as the wheat is less balancing than more maltiness. That is okay, it all works (if you like hops). Lingering hops finishes this out. Really nice. I really like Midnight Sun.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy amber with a 3 finger foamy off-white head. Aroma seems heavily floral. Medium body with foamy carbonation. It’s really bitter - I’m going for citrus and floral - and fairly bready. There is so much hop I’m not certain about the wheat. But this is a really good beer. Finish very bitter. It’s like medicinal hop!

pours like a typical hef; cloudy orange with mid density white head. Faint citrus aroma that i find to be a bit lacking if you are gonna say its an IPA. the taste does not falter, however, delivering a massive resinous hop punch while still maintaining the wheat beer feel in the mouth. great long lasting, bitter hop finish. quite refreshing.
