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 (1792) - 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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2011
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.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of lots of citrus, grassy hops, hop oils. Flavor is very citrus with hop oils and wheat malt. Crisp and quite rich in hops. Interesting and tasty IPA! 8/4/8/4/14 [3.8/5]

FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is very peachy and nicely citric, very fresh with a nice grassy character to it along with some sweet caramel note. Flavor is also very peachy, nice and juicy fruitiness. The wheat is barely there, but it tastes quite refreshing and clean, again grassy and citric, finishing with just a moderate bitterness. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Nice IPA

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Mug draft... dark peach, a little murky, dark tope head, really thin cap but lasting, small lace... Really fruity aroma, citrus bursting, oranges and pineapple with a toffee malt body, wheat ipa? Can’t tell, pleasant... The fruits don’t continue with the base is lots of smooth light sweet malts, very piney but smooth, orange peel finish... Really nice

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Draft at Revolution. Pours a cloudy gold with a decent size off white head. Nose of lemon and other citrus, and grass hops. Good citrus flavor, light wheat character and a really well done and rounded IPA. Keep the beer coming.
