On-tap at Cole’s. Presented to me as a kind of wheat IPA. The wheat bulks up the body and aids the lace. Golden yellow body, aromatic hops. Tongue tingling carbonation.. Decent bitterness, closer to what an American Pale is today in that regard.

draft at coles- a nice hoppy treat, with a very pleasant wheat bite- very drinkable, and very enjoyable. A good summer brew.

Draught at Coles. This beer was a beautiful yellow orange in a pint glass with a thin white head. The aroma is full of citrus fruit in the hops, all very fresh, also some pine. The mouthfeel is nice and full, clinging, coating. There is lots of fresh grapefruit in the flavour with other citrus fruits and a whole lot of fresh pine in the hops.

Draft at Coles in Buffalo NY. Pours a beautiful bright golden orange with a white head. Sweet citrus hoppy fruity aroma. The flavor is also hoppy with citrus and floral notes on top of a caramel malt and wheaty base. Nice lingering citric hop finish. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 on tap at Coles Buffalo, NY. Made for Coles 75th Aniversary. Pours alighter golden. Crisp hop filled aroma with some lemony citus & wheat. Taste is clean, citrusy wheay with real nice hop bitterness. Hoppy enough for hopheads & clean enough for non hopheads. Great summery session brew
