Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #43 (Aug 2010):
Hoppy wheat is what the beer geeks are callin' for. This beer has a thick, wheat-induced head and clear, pale amber color. It has some sweet breadiness underneath a big tide of hop aroma. It's super smooth and easy to drink. It has a thick flavor of soft, floral and fruity hops, and the bitterness is there, but nothing too sharp--more like dried grass or tobacco. This beer has a bit of a snappy, dry malt character and is faintly yeasty with some warming esters. The hops stay on the palate far into the aftertaste. This one has it all figured out--an amazing ale.

4.5/5 rDev +6.9%
Appearance: Faintly hazy blonde with a big white head that leaved a little lacing.
Smell: Strong hop smell - piney and floral.
Taste: Strong bitter bite up front followed by a hefty malt and wheat backbone. Mild bitter aftertaste. Alcohol was completely hidden to me.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and thick body (compared to most IPAs).
Overall: More like an IPA than a wheat beer. At first it tastes like a lot of American pale ales, but the thickness and malt backbone set it apart.
