look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Great cotton-like foam. Solid golden. Definitely has the traditional look of a filtered wheat ale. Carbonation is a bit absent.

Smell: Fresh grapefruit and grass. This li'l sumpin' sumpin' also has a slight herbal/floral scent. IPA qualities all around.

Taste/Mouthfeel: This really tastes like an IPA. Bitter grapefruit hops and some floral notes. The grapefruit notes fit the smell, but the floral flavors are definitely faint. Pretty full-bodied like a good IPA, which I wouldn't expect in a wheat ale, and I definitely like.

Overall Drinkability: A suprising ale. The alcohol really hits you on this one. Great flavors and smells.
