Can't put it in a box, nor can you surmise its greatness by trying to define the pale wheat/IPA characteristics that embody this brew. Slightly fizzy yellow; an inch of clouds; and minimal lace comprise the nonic pint that allows me to see the girth of my fingers on the other side. The smell is delicious; reminiscent of Cameron Diaz in her younger years, yet that is another story. Hmm. Banana chips, forest sap and honey pervade my senses and invite me to delve further into this temporary escape from reality. The taste is superb. I suppose this is a hybrid, because if mother wheat had a love child with the four C's, it would result in this brilliant, yet complex bubblegum hops offering. Body is medium, and warms with additional surprises of grapefruit and peach on the tongue. Every now and then we step outside of our zone and find a beer that surprises us. For me, this was one of those times. The IPA Hunter gives this an overall rating of LARRRRRRGE!
