Big off white head, maybe a light tan head settles to a quarter inch or more of frothy foam covering a clear bright golden colored beer that seems to have a touch of copper within it.

Light caramel malts mixed with light fruits like grapefruit and lime and to a lesser dergee some light pine sneaks in the aroma of this Supermonk.

Decent plend of l;ight caramel malts and citrus style hops make for a pretty tasty beer.

A dry aftertaste that brings along some of the light caramel notes and lighter citrus style hops tagging along with this medium bodied beer.

A decent tasting drink, I think I'll have another.

Poured a beautiful clear amber with a thin, yet fluffy head, reminiscent of a witbier. Quite nice to look at. Scents of grapefruit pith, pine and some fruity esters. A good IPA nose, with a bit of an estery, Belgian air. Quite nice. Flavors of grapefruit pith, grapefruit, pine resin, some Belgian yeast funk, citrus peel, some slight sweet malt backbone and a nice wheat cracker finish with a bitter hop aftertaste. Quite a nice bit of IPA flavor, with a little bit of that Belgian yeast character adding some depth to the American IPA flavors. Mouthfeel was lightbodied with moderate carbonation and a slick finish. Easy to drink, and surprisingly sessionable. Overall this is a very good beer. It's got the nice American IPA flavors but with a slight undercurrent of Belgian yeast. It's not as overt a Belgian IPA as say, Rayon Vert or Chainbreaker, but just enough to give it a nice complexity. Give it a try.

A - Hazy golden amber color with a nice head on top that sticks around for a while. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

S - Nice grapefruit, piney, garlic, onion smells from the hops. Breadiness/cereal in the background from the wheat.

T - With the combo of the Wit and IPA it almost comes off a little "dirty' tasting. I say this mostly because I'm getting distinctive onion and garlic off this one, along with some other earthy tones I don't really like that much. The grapefruit pine from the hops is definitely there too. Bready/cereal taste balances it out.

M - It has a little bit of a dirty/gritty mouth feel. Alc mostly covered. Aftertaste is bitter hops.

O - I do this all the time - go into the store with a clear idea of what I want and end up picking up something else that I haven't seen before. Sometimes it turns out to be awesome, other times not so much. This one not so much.

This beer is a hybrid Belgian Wit/IPA. The hops come through and provide a excellent uniqueness for a Belgian wit. The smell is definitely light citrus hops followed by a little biscuit like quality. Has a darker golden color with not much haze to it. Does not look like a Belgian wit. Very light and refreshing on the palate with a pretty bitter after taste. Perfect Arizona end of summer beer. I'm a fan and when I get a little more time will add more favor notes. This is the closest I have seen San Tan come to a west coast style IPA. . Definitely more of a IPA than a wit beer. I will let it warm and add some more notes later. After tasting it after it warms up a little I am getting some Wit qualities like clove and some pepper. Pretty unique beer and possibly my new favorite from San Tan. Will buy again.
