Pours hazy light gold into a weizen. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Caramel, yeast and resin aromas. Medium to sharp with sweet caramel and citrus front to back. Nicely balanced. degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy lemon-gold with a high, sticky head. Leaves copious lace. Nose has some lemon, some floral components, and a light herbal edge. The hops and malt are in definite balance -- it’s not aggressively hoppy, but the bitterness cuts through and complements the round wheaty mouthfeel. Not a beer of extremes -- and that’s OK.

Taste is an odd, bitter and sweet, with a funky spiced bread aftertaste. Light enough to be refreshing, zesty enough to bite back. Grrrrrrr hissssss

Unfiltered straw color pour with medium to light white head and no lacing. West coast hop aroma. Lots of citrus and some pine. I pick up some traditional wheat aromas as well. Some grassiness and some yeast esters. Highly carbonated. Pretty good balance between both styles. Most wheat IPA's are either too much wheat or too much ipa. This is a good mix. Estery, sweet, grassy malt character with citrusy and caramel pale ale character. Good refreshing beer.

Hazy pale gold with a small tight rocky head. Nose was beautifully hopped, like fresh-picked wet hops with a grassy/floral/grapefruity nose on top of a subtle malty sweet undertone. Flavor brings a lot of the wheat forward with earthy wheat flavors sweetness, a bit of citric sweetness as well, with a lot of the same wet-hoppy tones from the nose...grassy, floral, and quiet not-too-acidic grapefruit. Bitterness was present and balancing though not too strong. Just sat exactly where it needs to be to accentuate the earthy sweet wheat flavors. Lovely.

Ok; interesting. I wouldn't buy again but it's an interesting(good)take on a wheat beer(especially if you like hops). The touch of hoppyness would make me choose this over your average wheat beer, but not over a great wheat beer.

If I had had to choose between hoppy wheat or wheat, i’d choose the hoppy wheat. The hoppiness comes through in the aroma more than the taste. I dig angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Draft. Hazy golden pour. Nose is huge citrus, clove, light pine, honey. Flavor is strong citrus, unripened citrus, wheat with a lightly bitter finish. Great mouthfeel. jbruner (4747) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow from the bottle with thin lacy ring of head that doesn’t really stick on the way down. Aroma and taste are of fresh piney hops, backed by a nice wheat malt backbone. Good stuff. Leighton (21296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Pours clear yellow with a light, white foam head. Sweet wheat, citrus. Good balance, not too sweet. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean finish, wheat and biscuity malts. Tasty.
