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!

Brentv (369) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2014
I like this beer quite a lot better than the consensus here. From the stubby bottle, pours a dark honey color with a huge frothy white head and lots and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is piney and citrus. Taste has a wonderful maltiness that gives way to pine citrus hoppy bitterness. Medium slick mouthfeel, and perfect carbonation. This is a very nice beer that I would love to have again.

Barreras (1004) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours an amber color with a clean malt aroma. Taste is very simple. Fine malt mixed with mild bitterness after the swallow. Some hay and earthy flavor, but a simple IPA that lacked complexity.

Patrickctenchi (3847) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle: Hazy orange-amber, minimal head. Faint, orange and wheat scent. Wheat malt, orange-peel taste...malt... Easy drinking, but nothing really stands out. Just OK.

Bottle. Buttery wheat malt and light orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet buttery wheat malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Okay.

kevinsenn (1105) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle from healthy spirits, SF. Fruit salad aroma. Metallic bitter taste, some light fruits, and a long bitter finish. Not much hops in the taste other than IBUs. Was hoping for more.

tmongoose (1341) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 5, 2014
12oz bottle shared. Pours medium orange with fluffy head. Aroma is malt forward with some wheat and the hop is quite mild. The flavor is wheat with some hop on the backend. Pretty mild for an ipa. But pretty decent for a wheat ale. Wish it would have more of a hop body. Overall good wheat flavor just lacking on the hops.

It poured a hazy dark golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was of moderate to heavy earthy hops and some wheat. It had a medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. The taste was moderate to heavy bittersweet with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Very nice.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours clear copper / orange with a white head. The aroma has creamy mushy malt, cobwebs, dry butterscotch, caramel and band aids. It has a medium body that is lightly rough and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with dry caramel and hoppiness that has earthy, pine, soap and citrus zest. The finish has some spicy hops. Decent.
