Bottle; poured a orange tinted gold color with a big frothy head. Aroma of wheat, Belgian yeast, earth, citrus and light notes of fruit. Very much like a Belgian IPA. Flavor was fairly bold. Alots of hopping and yeast/wheat notes. These fusion beers are not normally my style, yet this was well done. Alcohol was well hidden for the most part. Palate was ok.

On tap at Gourmet Haus. Loads of grass, citrus and manure on the aroma....places me in a summer meadow instantly. Beautiful hazy orange with white head and nice lacing. Taste is surprising smooth as the wheat makes itself known. Nice citrus and earth. Palate starts thin, medium is chewy and falls away quickly. Bitterness throughout. Citrus leaves it late. Late glass aroma is mostly citrus.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle purchased from Wally’s Wine in Westwood. This is a huge surprise and my first beer from this brewery. A great blend of amped up wheat with double ipa hops. Dark yellow color kinda cloudy. Taste is a huge double ipa hop citrus punch with the grain texture body of a bold wheat beer. All around excellent and very enjoyable beer. If this was regularly available I would buy it consistently.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Taps, Petaluma. Foggy deep gold with large fluffy white head and copious lacing. Bright, grassy, lemony aromas charge forward ahead of subtle wafery tones. Big, fresh, assertive hopping brings powerful, almost anesthetic, spices like wintergreen and rosemary, with a tender, pasty sweetness playing support. A skosh of hotness sullies a pleasing resinous finish. A capable challenger in the Sumpin’ Sumpin’ class.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pour is a hazy gold with a massive white head, good lacing/retention. Aroma is wheat malt, citrus/floral hops, spicy yeast. Taste is soft wheat malt, big grapefruit/citrus hops, lemon, light booze. Palate is creamy, light-medium body, bitter finish. Kind of reminded me of 3F gumballhead taken to the next level.

Pours light orange with plenty of white head and lacing. Taste is bitter with an alcoholic bite. Bottle was old but this is the first wheat IPA I have tried.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden orange. Thin whit head with good lacing. Good wheat flavor and then a lot of hops! This is a great beer. If you a fan of wheat and IPAs you have got to try this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Odd blend of styles, but it kind of works. Malt flavors are chewy, wheaty and grainy sweet. Hops are herbal and floral, yet not exactly like your typical American-style IPA. Dry finish. Flavors and aromas are decent, overall. But there’s an alcohol burn that’s too harsh and too hot, and it takes away from the delicate malt and hop notes. Without that alcoholic distraction this would be a much more enjoyable beer.

22. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with orange edges. Loose, sudsy, and nicely deep off-white head. Huge bready wheaty nose, smells like cracked husks heading for a flour grinder, plus a tang of activated yeast. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Wheat, caramel, and oranges on the mid palate. Fruity, oily hop finish of oranges. Nice refreshing big old wheat beer. Would happily drink again.

22. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Pours a hazy dark orangeish amber. Dense but shallow off-white head. Huge tropical fruit nose: grapefruit, pineapple, mango. Creamy medium body. Piney, grapefruity, toasty mid-palate with a big resiny finish. These huge hops combine with the dense, somewhat mild but still perceptible brown-bread wheat notes so well. It’s just a natural match. Great beer.
