A: Hazy yellow orange with a big frothy white head

S: Juicy hops, grapefruit, bubble gum, wheat malt, tangerine, orange peel

T: Holy smokes! What a juicy, hoppy, citrus punch. This beer is like juicy fruit gum. Just enough sweetness to balance.

M: Creamy, medium bodied. Perfect for this hybrid.

O: I love this beer! I don't know what it is, but I want more of it. The hop bomb of an IPA, the refreshing character of a Hefe, the drinkability of a light lager. This is so money.

Had from a 12 oz bottle in a tulip glass

A = Crystal clear. Nice light golden color. Good head. So far, we're looking good.

S = Smells like an IPA (even though they say it isn't). Citrus and hops prevail.

T = Tastes like a light IPA to me. Very nice - not too hop crazy.

M = No bitter after taste that is typical of an IPA.

O = Really liked this beer. I can see what they mean when they say it is hard to categorize.

Poured a nice clear light orange body with a half finger foamy white head. It looks quite nice, very inviting. Scents of earthy, vegetal hops, hints of tropical fruit, mostly mango, a bit of pine resin, a hint of orange and a little bit of alcohol. Overall impression of aroma is a nicely hop forward aroma that has most all of the typical West Coast aromas on display. Quite nice. Flavor begins with a nice vegetal hop flavor, mingling with pine resin, and a bit of indeterminate citrus. Bitterness is moderate. This moves into a middle with notes of orange zest and flesh and a touch of alcohol. Finish is medium-dry with notes of pine resin, earthy, vegetal hops, faint alcohol and a bit of grainy malt. Aftertaste is tropical fruit, pine resin, a bit of grainy malt and earthy hops. Overall impression is of a nicely hoppy beer that still lets a bit of the wheat malt shine through. Very nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, resinous and slightly chewy with a nicely slick feel with medium-low carbonation. Overall impression is of a good, smooth, resinous mouthfeel that is quite nice. Overall this is a nice hoppy wheat ale that is very pleasant in aroma and flavor and is aided by a nice mouthfeel. It is quite balanced and very drinkable, a good ale.
