Very light, very little hop flavor. This should not be considered an IPA by any means. Pathetic head with nonexistent lacing. Other than that, really not a bad beer. Nice color, easy drinking smooth taste. If they could add some more carbonation and call this just a wheat ale instead of a wheat IPA I would have much more respect for this brew.

Aroma is wheat, medicinal, spicy, fruit. Pours hazy copper with a super dense, beautiful orangeish off white cap. Kool-aid sweetness, light citrus, medicine, chemicals, wheat. I hate to say bad things about any beer but this really is offensive to the palate. Besides the lack of hop flavor for the style, theres something else here that leaves a residual bad taste. The appearance is great...Two thumbs up. Everything else is thumbs down. Slick, watery mouthfeel.

bottle. Golden with small head. Take a mediocre wheat beer and add the faintest trace of some hops. It could be worse, but others have done this so much better.

Light amber bodied with a bubbly medium head, this WIPA (?) smells of oranges, all from the peels and not from the hops. It tastes all sweet and orangey with little of any hop bitterness. There’s also a hit of butterscotch that’’s really out of place. Why is "IPA" in the name?

Evidently after InBev discovered that people are jumping ship from the "barely-beer" that ab tapped out for generations they had to try to protect their $60 billion investment. So they’re trying to break into the craft market. Don’t let them or they will destroy the smaller independent brewers. Notice that the success of this market has been slow to find the mainstream media. You would think that this would haev been on 60 minutes by now. That’s because of the huge advertising dollars of InBev, Coors and SAB.
