served on-tap @ Pequod's Pizza, Chicago, IL, into a pint glass

Pours like pretty much every good wheat does: hazy with a solid amount of white rocky head. Not much to say. It looks good.

The aroma is pretty fantastic for the style. This is only because of the hops. Vibrant, fresh, juicy hops. Nothing unusual here. Just the standard IPA aromas of grapefruit and pine and orange. A bit of tropicality (but not to the degree of, say, Boulevard 80-Acre).

This is a wheat IPA, even moreso than Gumballhead is. It's bursting with juicy hop flavor. But you can still taste the wheat backbone. The slight lemon quality from the wheat is accentuated by the citrus components from the hops. Delicious.

The mouthfeel is a tad slicker than most American Pale Wheat Ales, which tend to be pretty effervescent. This is due to all of the hop oils, no doubt. Still refreshing though. Overall this is about as good a beer as the pale wheat style can be.
