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!

Funky cool bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a generous head. Aromas are heavy with hops... resin, oranges and grapefruit up front and a hint of papaya late. Flavor follows the hop profile in reverse... starting with a tropical fruit blast, then transitioning into citrus and resin in the late finish. The hops bill is good, but I donít think the wheat is a great choice. It seems to waffle a bit and get in the way of what would be a pretty darn nice IPA. Itís interesting and good, but I doubt Iíll be back for seconds.

jgb9348 (4819) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Clear light amber coloured body with a honey glow and a VERY VERY large soapy tan head - a lot of carbonation in this one, especially rising from the bottom. Aroma of fresh piney and grapefruity hops with a good malt balance, some noticeable wheatie scent, coriander seed, a touch of curacao and a little yeast note - very nice! Medium-bodied; Nice wheat flavour at first with a drying and quick flavour shock, then fades to pretty much a grassy, herbal hop flavour - nice and good for the style. Aftertaste shows a good mix of literally an american wheat and an american ipa - wheatie flavours at first with a good potent hop backbone - very nice. Overall, exactly what the label says - an american wheat ipa, a cool style and one that was executed pretty well, if not almost as good as possible. Definitely one to sample if you can find it, and if I could get this beer more often, Iíd buy a lot of it - plus, I love the brewpub in TC and the stubby bottles. I sampled this 34 cL stubby bottle purchased from Sicilianoís in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 06-November-2010 for US$1.89 after driving down from TC earlier in the day, sampled at home in Washington on 05-June-2011. The date on the bottle (production) was October 13, 2010.

This is a nice looking beer that comes in an awesome bottle. That is the most important thing really, the bottle. This site should actually be called ratebottle.com because we are all just wasting our time drinking all this beer. This is a sticky, piny brew and just not really to my taste as far as either American wheats or IPA. It is not really strong enough or complex enough to be a slow sipper and not light and refreshing enough for drinking.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 10, 2011
Citrus and light pine aroma with decent sweet malts, too. Has a round mouthfeel. Flavor has nice hop citrus notes, some grapefruit, and medium sweet malts. A decent brew.

Onslow (1206) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Pour form an 11.5 oz stubby bottle. Hazey orance amber brew with thick n frothy head. Light aroma dominated by earthy tones - maybe hops, maybe yeast, maybe the wheat. Light aroma. The thought of a wheat IPA sounded interesting but it really comes across as a rather off balance and mild. Taste is mild and rather plain - some sour grains at the start and a bit of sour hoppiness, light pine and maybe a bit of citrus hops, in the finish. Grain is light and somewhat sour, making this a rather unbalanced brew. Thin palate, not so great.

aroma is fresh mown foliage and clearer pine, fruits in distance, mostly lemon. appearance is well hazed amber with active carb and lingering film. flavor is savory hops, meaty and organic with redundant lemon already issues in nose. bitter backbone rides out after citrus is unrecognizable and leaves palate harsh. brash IPA with enough hints of esters to bring the best of a few classes for the style. mouthfeel is often times dealt with a feather; perhaps this is the wheat, perhaps it is a placebo planted by the labeling of ingredients. doesnt matter.

Nephilium (1392) - Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2011
A nice mild aroma of piney hops and a touch of wheat malts. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a tight cap of white head. An interesting flavor, that comes across as an aggressively hopped wheat ale. The mouthfeel and palate tend more towards the IPA side then the feel of a wheat beer. Not a bad beer, and one that will probably be in my fridge quite a bit through the summer months.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2011 Hah, pretty funny, like a wheat IPA, or should it be a IWPA or a IWA? Whatever. Pour is IPA, smell is IPA. The taste of this is quite viscious all right; terrible max ipa noomsday. Any CO2 is nullified by the flavor impact. And iipa blast follows, climbing up the tree, probably should be imperial in style. does not hide alky or anything very well, yew, in your face blasting nasty nexus. Swirling rudeness like chewing on some big bitter buds. Ditto on the long terrible finish.Gunk comes from the bottom of the jar. It does come in a cute bottle and now I know why it rates high in the ipa style, on style and over the top in crudeness. Mind you, it does not make you gag, its just a plain big fat beer. If you love ipa, subtract my rating from 5 to get your rating.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2011
Clear golden amber color, with a big foamy white head that last to bottom of the glass. Citrus and pine in the nose, along with some tropical fruit and caramel malt. Smooth and creamy with enough carbonation to lift it off the tongue. Sweet - a little cloying in large doses - but with enough bitter back end to balance. Great palate and appearance, but Iím not a big fan of the hop varieties and yeast selection. A little too earthy, piney, and fruity.

JaBier (4989) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2011
Sample at Fat Heads on 3/26/11. Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops with dank malt. Malty flavor with citrusy and floral hops with a grassy finish.
