1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours amber with a brief head that fades to a soapy scum along the top. No lacing. The smell is bad. This beer stinks. Iíve seen things come out of my basset hound that didnít smell this bad. I was able to raise the glass a few times, though, and the flavor isnít as bad as the aroma. Itís kind of a mildly citrus, slightly hoppy, brief twinge that implies an IPA. Itís like someone served a weaker beer in an unwashed glass that once contained an IPA.

pours an amber gold with a thick but quickly dissipating head. Taste is a weak citrus. Hops on the finish. Not bad.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Aroma of wheat and hops. More of a wheat than IPA, it has the taste of both but the wheat overwhelms the hops. Some of the ingredients taste off or bad. Also has a weird artificial flavoring to it. Itís actually an okay beer, just wish the hops had more bite and I wish it had any finish to speak of. Just kind of peters off. Actually, sorry if Iím sort of writing this as Iím drinking the beer, but as it goes along it gets worse. Warming up makes that nasty artificial flavor stick out more, the IPA is all but lost, and it has a real cloying factor to it. When it was used to wash down some brats it was okay, as it was starting to be used to just sip on, oh wow it got a whole lot worse. Something medicinal to it. 5.8% alcohol.

I hate to pile on AB InBev too much, but if this is their idea of "craft" then they deserve to be called out. It pours a golden amber color with an orange head. The aroma is dull hops and mildly fruity with some cooked veggies (DMS?) The flavor is the same with some plastic like phenolics, mild floral hops and wheat. More cooked veggies. Ugh... I donít mind their boring pale lagers, but this is is just wrong.

The wheat is the interesting flavor with a mild touch of bitter. Has a flavor that is interesting but is not superior.

I was hoping for something complex. What I got was a mild wheat beer with a few more hops added. Did not blend well and was mild at best.

Weak in flavor, but I expected a mellow beer considering itís a wheat low abv IPA. I did enjoy it though. So, I donít hate this nearly as much as the other reviewers seem to.
