Bottle. Poured all head. Settled to a deeper golden color. Aromas of citrus, wheaty, musty, and spicy. Thinner tastes of the same. Tom hit it on the head when he said if he had this blind, he would have guessed a Saison.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A decent IPA with significant wheat added. An orangey piney IPA taste. Nice orange appearance and creamy foamy head. The wheat adds to the creamy mouthfeel. Hop aromas. Good drinkability, likely the wheat balances potential astringency from the hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via a trade. Pours with a murky burnt/deep orange hue and an off-white head with decent retention and lacing. Aromas of fruit, pine and citrus hop notes, lightly grassy, straw like. Medium to light yeast esters. Some light malt sweetness. Flavors of citrus, tangerine, and melon hop notes, malt is caramel and bready. A bit too sweet and full for my liking. Medium esters. Lingering duration (slightly sticky). A hint of alcohol. Medium to lively carbonation, a slightly full body for my liking, mildly warming. Decent.

Sample at Fat Head’s. The beer pours a hazy golden-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Citrusy hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of hops, citrus and wheaty malt. The finish is fruity with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent IPA overall.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
I thought this one was a failure. Super spicy, bitter but not extremely so, very herbal. It is a bit harsh.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a Growler at the 2010 March Metro Detroit Tasting. Poured a cloudy gold with a medium gray head that quickly dissipated. Aroma had pine notes with a bit of sweet fruit underlying and as well as a bit of funk. Flavor was similar with mainly pine and the fruit coming out towards the finish.
