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 brewís 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 Ė and leave you howling for more!

Not usually a fan of wheat but this is drinkable. Could pack a little more punch.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy, sediment-laden medium orange-brown body, thick puffy buff head. Complex nose of dusty esters, tangy wheat and a variety of herbal and grassy hops. Weird body, sweet, tangy and earthy with citrus and wet grass, overall a flat flavor profile and the hops faded enough to lack punch. Disappointing but Iíll have to sample a fresher specimen sometime.

ADesenberg (630) - Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle: golden with a big head. Itís got a ton of citrusy hops in both aroma and flavor, but backed up with a nice solid wheatiness. Interesting, in a good way!

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Pours hazy golden with big notes of citrus and resin. Deep grain on the palate drives into a bitter hopped lingering finish.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle: The aroma is very heavy on oranges mixed with some peach, Belgian yeast, and orange peel. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger orange tinged off-white head that has good retention and leaves behind a good amount of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with orange, peach, and some Belgian yeastiness. The finish has moderate grapefruit, light wheat notes, and pine. Itís medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, itís fall somewhat in line with the Belgian IPAs.

rubbishystuff (1880) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Thanks to Dad for this. Interesting beer. Thankfully not too much wheatiness to compete with the hops which were powerful and piney-grapefruit. High carbonation. Biting after taste. Serving: Bottle

Hazy golden with a huge fluffy off white head. Caramel, grain, and grapefruit aroma and taste with a crisp yet chew palate and a beautiful sweet fruit bread finish.
