COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beware of beer. There, we warned you. The frothy head, and pungent, piney dryhopped scent (from Cascade and Amarillo hops) should alert you to the brew’s imminent attack on your senses. Next, Cascade, Perle and Willamette hops will batter your palette with bitter ferocity. Finally, Pale, Crystal (30 and 75) and wheat malts converge in a cloudy, thick body and give you a smooth kiss of sweet death – and leave you howling for more!

On draft. Never would have guessed that this was a wheat IPA. Mouthfeel is of cream soda, with a more bitter flavor. Some grapefruit hops, strong, strong wheaty malts. Not summery. Interesting, but not a go-to.

Cloudy copper with a nice white head. I was expecting some kind of sweet wheat beer but this tastes like an IPA. White lace bitter aroma. Some butterscotch in the finish.

PorterPounder (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
St. Augustine, Fl. - Broudy’s Fine Wine & Spirtis - 12 oz stubby bottle. Slightly sparkling medium orange pour, little to no head. Aroma has some ripening vegetable notes. Flavor is kind of muddled with some ripening vegetables, some date-like fruitiness, just a hint of citrus bitterness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Not really feeling IPA in this one.

Draft at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. Pours an orange-amber color. Aroma and taste are malts and citrus.

marcus (6538) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours cloudy amber with a nice off-white head and a bready aroma. There is a bitter pale malt flavor with a very dry finish. Not very balanced - hop bitterness overwhelms the malt sweetness.

b3shine (5492) - Indiana, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Draft to pint at Ei8ht Ball. Looks decent; a hazy burnt orange with eggshell head. Smells mildly hoppy and wheaty with a touch of soap. Tastes like it smells with an average, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but would be better if it were lighter and dryer.

can8ianben (1324) - Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Can’t really taste the wheat from the aggressive hopping, but this is a pleasant and easy drinking IPA with a full hop flavor profile. Nicely done.

AbbeyRoade (324) - Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Truly delicious. Sweet honey aroma and fantastic honey taste upon sipping. Fully thick, wheaty, oaty flavor. Great brew.
