look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
a: lightly hazed amber golden with a creamy cap of white carbonation, nice retention and lace
s: the hoppy nose reeks passionfruit and red grapefruit, loaded with tropical and floral aromas atop a totally dominated wheat malt body, perhaps some soft banana esters from the yeast, a hop bomb, my gripe is that it doesn't really show any characteristics in the style - but don't really care
m: soft carbonation on the high side of medium, light-medium bodied
t: killer juicy tropical fruit hops, mostly sweet and pulpy with some crisp citrus undertones, nice sweet florals, the wheat is mostly hidden but provides a nice clean sweetness, some yeast character makes it out intact in the form of banana, moderate bitterness in the flavorful finish, strikes a few more chords than the aroma and gets a higher score as a result
d: just fine, this wheat-ipa hyrbrid is a great alternative take on the style if perhaps a cheap way to pull it off (ie. pour add a ton of hops)
standard pint at Taphouse on Queensway, Hampton, VA

On draught at the euston tap in London

S - freshly cut grass, citrus and slight sweet malt smell in the background
T - starts with a bitter hop kick, quite grassy then fades to a sweet citrus note with brown sugar characteristics, finishes with piny bitterness
M - smooth with medium carbonation. Finishes quite dry.
