A Wheat IPA that lashes the tongue with with a blend of hops including Japanese Sorachi Ace which taste a bit a like lemongrass. A bit different than the normal IPA.

Had a cask pour at Revolution. Pours copper in color with a light tan head. Very nice hoppy beer, not too bitter or fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy orange pour with a single finger head. Nice lacing. Lemon aroma. Mouth is a little light for my liking. Taste is full of wheat and lemon. Good grass components. The yeast shines here and plays really nice with the Sorachi Ace hops used. A unique take on the style.

Good, would recommend. Great representation of the style I am now adding words to hit the minimum character limit even though my first 2 sentences got my point across

rosenbergh (8545) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Draught at the Revolution Brewpub, Chicago, IL.
Hazy deep golden colour with a small foamy white head. Strong citrusy and resiny hops and strong bitterness in the aroma. Balanced. Delicious. Wheat, mild yeast, resiny and piney hops and moderate bitterness. Very tasty. Highly drinkable. Wow! I liked this one a lot.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Tasted on 8/5/11 on draft at Revolution. Pours clear orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to spotty lace. The nose is tropical fruit hops, peach, a hint of black pepper, and some light hay and cereal malt backing everything up. The flavor is lightly malty up front, with a hint of brown sugar, moving to tropical fruit, resin bitterness, and the same hints of black pepper and peach from the nose. The body is light with average carbonation and a long resin bitterness and tropical fruit finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, deeper golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is pretty solid. Lots of fresh, lemony citruses with a good amount of pines and grass. A light floral and mango fruitiness too. Light amount of bready pale malts with a hint of crisp wheat. Flavor is similar. Fruity up front with a nice citrus and lemon-grassiness. A light bready pale malt again with a touch of wheat that guides this into the finish as the juicy citrus and piney lemon-grass grows. Finishes nicely dry with a moderate bitterness, a few resins, and a light wheat crispness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light, clean body and moderate, crisper carbonation. Overall, a really nice beer. Lots of fresh citrusy-lemon hops with a solid bitterness. Not a whole lot of wheat, but very easy drinking and enjoyable. Nice one.

Draft at the Revolution brewpub. Pours a dark honey amber. White head. Strong grapefruit and grass aroma. Very dry. Strong lacing. Lots of hops, but not over the top. More IPA then wheat.
