3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can, its a bit of a cheapo can but that kind of makes it cool. Poured into a thinner tulip glass. One thing is that the labels for this brewery are pretty crappy, really homebrew like. Either way, poured into a thinner tulip glass with a medium thick head that leaves an equally thick lacing. Has a very hazy pale straw color. The looks are the best part of the beer. At first the aroma is a hit of grapefruit hops but as soon as that goes by (and as the beer warms) very soapy lemonade aromas arise. Its a weird sweet lemony husky malt aroma. I kind of like the lemon but not so much the sweet cereal mash. Flavor is the same with hops being nuddled by some weird sweet and unfermented wort elements. I want it to be cleaner, leaner, and crisper. Decently light on the palate though.

Draft sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Grass, citrus and pine with a decent bit of vanilla. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can shared. Pours light cloudy dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of caramalt upfront, with the strawberry milkshake hop. Flavour is moderate sweet and heavy bitter, with the strawberry milkshake hop quickly turning to grapefruit but lingering long in the background. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

This was surprisingly easy to drink and not too hop forward. Honestly, I didnít know what to think of this, but the grass, citrus, lemon aroma mixed with a nice malt balance in the finish really surprised. Well balanced with a good balance of flavors.

Aroma is citrus, wheat, fruit and a hint of sugar/slight perfume. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, fruit, wheat, hop resin, malts, slight sugar notes and a tangy/bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours an orange-gold, medium white head, okay retention but mad lacing. Nose is citrus, mango, some graininess. Mouth is lighter-bodied than I expected from reading the other reviews thus far, but Iíll concur with BBB that this is most certainly an IPA -- wheated though it may be. Also looks like itís already been categorized on here as such. Anyhow, it is pretty damn tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle poured in a chinet crystal cup. Aroma is grassy and hoppy. Flavor is sweet light hops, noticeably hoppy but not overbearing. I liked this way more than I expected. Well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle and served in a Ayinger hefeweizen glass: Pours a hazy golden hue with a lasting frothy head and okay lace. The aroma immediately strike me as an IPA, very juicy with mangoes, grapefruits, tangerines overtones along with wheat husks, bready malts and a bit of white (garlically) pepper vapours. The taste is quite fruity with some light dank/catty notes from the FF hops. Husky and grainy and a mild spicy finish, there is some alcohol too. The mouth feel is aggressive and brash, this could be a bit more sessionable IMO because it is an IPA and not a wheat ale. Repeat this is not a Wheat Ale... it is an IPA with some wheat in the malt bill!... oh it is very very tasty!!!
