3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. A cross style as IPA flavour contributing to a regular wheat. The sourness of the wheat is there and the hops comes through with malt sweetness finishing up to make it drinkable. Lots of dot lace. Carbonation understated to be unobtrusive.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Cloudy yellow beer, thick white head. The palest IPA I’ve ever seen. The aroma is totally unique. Very lemony and herbal with a lot of soft perfumey hops and fresh wheaty zestiness. Flavour is light and fresh, with good interplay of spicy wheat and very flowery/perfumey hoppiness. Light perfume and cologne with a lingering lemon peel character on the back. Body is quite light which keeps it refreshing. I’d love to see this one back in the summer... I’d drink lots of it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on tap at the brewpub on 9/17/07: Pours a hazy copper bronze with a pillowy full-lacing light tan head. Aroma of fresh grapefruity citrusy and piny hops with good mild pale malt and sweet wheat. Body starts fairly full with good balance of sticky lightly caramel malt and resiny grapefruity bittering and flavoring hops.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at American Flatbread. Pours a hazy almost milky yellow gold with a medium large white head. Soft wheat, a little bit of citrus and pine, not as much of a hop profile as I was expecting from the description, and especially after the big grassy IPA earlier. Medium bodied, hops come through here a little more, some nice juicy hop flavors, earthy over wheat. Finishes with a slowly developing soft bitterness. Pretty good.
