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!

GnarlyGnome (803) - Fairfield, 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!

Pours hazy golden with big notes of citrus and resin. Deep grain on the palate drives into a bitter hopped lingering finish.

Pailhead (5747) - Plymouth, 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 (2052) - 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

unclemike (2578) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 28, 2012
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.

BelgianBeerGal (3435) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottled at Dayton Ale Feast. I think they succeeded in their attempt here: a nice, moderately hoppy IPA with a fuller body from the wheat. Despite the description, I didnít find the hops that powerful but I thought the beer worked well.

Vicious is the word. The balance between the wheat and hops really play on each other producing a cynergistic effect like no other. It may tear at my pallet and shread my taste buds but that is what i wanted and that is what I got.
