3.9/5 rDev -7.4%
Pours kind of a hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Smells like honey, hops, and wheat. My first taste is about the same. It's kind of like a wheat IPA. There's some grapefruit, some grass, a little bit of malt sweetness, and long, dry, tart finish.
You'd never guess it's 7.5% ABV.
I definitely get more IPA than wheat, which is probably why I like it! Overall, it's different, certainly worth a try. Very drinkable, especially for its ABV.

3.68/5 rDev -12.6%
Enjoyed on 8/6/11.
A: Amber color w/ a very white frothy head that dissipates quickly.
S: Lots of hoppy citrus smells. Grapefruit, some light grain in the background.
T: Very light taste. Mostly hops, maybe faintly taste some wheat but the hops overpower it by a lot.
M: Very light feel w/ high carb feel. A little bit of alcohol burn on the mouth at the end.
O: If you want a hoppy pale ale w/ some wheat flavor, this one might be for you. It had too much hops and not enough wheat for its style in my opinion. That being said, an enjoyable beer.

4.53/5 rDev +7.6%
Purchased as a single from Trader joes - poured into a DFH snifter
Pours a straw yellow/amber with nice head and good lacing. Smells absolutely wonderful. man. Hops are there in a big way but there is a nice cool soothing aroma as well that I can't really describe. Taste follows. There is a nice soothing minty taste and it is great on the finish. I love this beer.
Overall this is a beer that I think everyone should try. Do it. I will try it again and again.. ..

3.9/5 rDev -7.4%
Appearance: Pours a nice golden orange. Slightly cloudy. No head.
Smell: Warm caramel malts. Hints of nutmeg. A bit spicy. Hops are a mix of orange peel and pine cone. Nice sweet balance. Doesn't burn my eyelids off.
Taste: I didn't know this was a wheat ale when my wife picked this out for me at bev mo'. This is really pleasant. It has a tropical punch quality.Sweet tart and sugary. The malts blend well with the hops. This beer is finely balanced. The general taste is somewhat close sweet white wine. The hops aren't super astringent and they finish well. This is really mild tasting being a 7.5 abv beer.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. It has a little bit of the swish factor because it doesn't dissolve instantly.
Drinkability: I could drink a few of these easily and be more intodxicated than I would want to be, due to the high ABV. It would be a good finisher for a hefeweizen tasting session.
