COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our single-hopped Wheat IPA. This beer was launched as part of our I.P.April– a month long celebration of hoppy brews–and we decided to brew it with a different hop each year. Until we brewed it with Citra and then, well, we never turned back. Completely satisfyingly awesome in its crispiness and over-all well-rounded hopaliciousness. This beer might just be your Rushmore. 13.6°

Sammy (9059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2008
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.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2008
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.

MartinT (8236) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Sandy hop resins and their citrusy accents thrive within this slender Wheat IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the clear dark gold.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-Resinous bitterness is not shy at all.
-Wheat tags along nicely with the chosen New World hops’ fruitiness.

On tap at American Flatbread Burlington.
