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°

On tap at Positive Pie - Montpelier, VT. Pours lightly hazy gold with a fine, white foam head. Good stuff. Plenty of pale bread, light crispy cereal, orange, light bitter pine needles. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Low hoppy resins to finish with further crispy pale bread, citrus fruits such as lemon and orange. Highly drinkable.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
A hazed blonde IPA with a thick collapsing lacing off white head. In aroma, nice piney and grassy hops, a bit of bubblegum, citrus notes, very nice. In mouth, a nice smooth wheat malt with piney hops, grapefruit pulp, creamy, nice. On tap at American Flatbread Burlington, April 7 2012.

Sammy (8627) - 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 (8411) - 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.

2013-04-29. Lightly hazy orange body, nice white head and lace.

Modest bitterness throughout. 7++ Average bodied palate, nice carbonation, suits it. Quite enjoyable. On tap at American Flatbread, Burlington

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 19, 2007
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.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
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.
