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
Serving type: on-tap

I really love how different this is! It has the fresh citrus and pine notes of an IPA with smooth, mellow undertones of orange peel and vanilla. It feels like an IPA and wheat beer working together and it is such a good combination! The overall product is fresh and citrusy with a smooth creamy finish. I plan on buying this again very soon.
