Served in a pint glass on tap at The Barley House in Algonquin, IL
This beer pours a hazy orange color with decent lacing from the frothy white foam head. The smell is of lots of hops, particularly the pine and lemon aroma derived from the hops used. The taste is honestly not nearly as hoppy as I had expected, and as a matter of fact that was a good surprise. There's not a hell of a lot to the taste, but the main components are citrus (lemony) and hints of banana. It feels really nice on the tongue and is one of the better drinking beers I know.

Appearance has a nice golden amber color supporting a thin dissipating head leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice balance of malt and hops bringing out a sweet citrusy aroma. Taste has that same balance with the sweet malt and hop that finishes clean. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. One of the better and easier drinking IPA's I've had in awhile.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip. Aggressive pour yields a nice big fluffy three-finger white head. Clear yellow color with nice lacing.
Aroma of oranges, and a bready, earthy-type wheat aroma. Prominent is the orange/citrus aroma.
Nice bitter hop flavor with just enough sweet citrus to balance. Not your typical wheat ale. This one is strong on the hop side.
For a wheat ale, it has a little too bitter aftertaste, but since I'm a hop lover, I approve. Easy to enjoy and fairly drinkable.

Pours light gold and clear with two fingers of foam that won’t fall down. Lots of clinging lace. The nose is grapefruit, pine and a little resin. As it warms it smells like wheat and honey. The malt is a surprising standout in the glass. Bready and lots of biscuit. The hops are vigorous earthy and herbal. Their spiciness is tamed down by the big malt character. What a surprise this beer was. A celebration of hops without being overly fruity or bitter. A celebration of pale malt that was straightforward and not overly sweet . Robust yet easy to drink with a lightly oily mouthfeel and a long dry finish. This beer really does have a little sumpin’ sumpin’.
