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 brew’s 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 – and leave you howling for more!

Tmoney99 (11066) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle. Poured hazy dark golden color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and wheat aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Very good brew.

Flavors of wheat, earthiness, orange zest and grapefruit with a crisp moderatly bitter lingering earthy finish.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2010
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.

Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2011
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.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2011
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.

shrubber85 (7945) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle. Buttery wheat malt and light orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet buttery wheat malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Okay.

crossovert (7869) - Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2012
I thought this one was a failure. Super spicy, bitter but not extremely so, very herbal. It is a bit harsh.

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 21, 2011
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.

deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2010
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.
