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.

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 didn’t 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.

I thought this one was a failure. Super spicy, bitter but not extremely so, very herbal. It is a bit harsh.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours burnt orange with off white head that diminishes to cap. Plenty of bubbly action from bottom glass. Aroma slight pine citrus. High medium body. Taste sweet orange with average bitterness end. Intriguing approach to ipa and very enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into my newly acquired SA Perfect Pint.
4.0 A: Hazed medium orange color. Two and a half fingers of pillowy/frothy white head that retains well and leave a good bit of lacing.
4.0 S: Lots of earthy hops with grapefruit citrus, some floral, and some spice. Sugary with hints of bubblegum. The wheat and the yeast come through well.
3.5 T: Very earthy with the wheat and yeast coming through. The bubblegum is still detectable, but the sugariness is gone. Just a touch of citrus from the hops; this is mainly just earthy. Sweet upfront with a dry finish.
3.0 M: Medium to slightly heavier body. Carbonation level is fine, but it’s a "dead" carbonation causing the beer to sit heavy on the tongue. Could be creamier for how thick the body is.
3.5 D: Decent beer, but not as hoppy as a typical IPA. This holds a place in my heart nonetheless because it looks, smells, and tastes quite similar to one of my early homebrews.
Serving type: bottle
