Enjoyed on draft at Wild Monk. Served in a Stone IPA shaker pint.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color with a nice one finger height of pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thick cap and collar that leaves some nice sheets of lace down the glass.

S: Juicy citrus on the nose. some candied orange and definite tangerine. Sweet wheaty malts are present on the back end as well.

T: Nicely hopped just like the nose. Burst of citrus fruits and tree fruits with a little bit of lingering herbal bitterness to give it another depth of flavor. There is a nice cracked wheat and sweet malt body to the beer as well.

M: Medium to light bodied with a nice medium high carbonation level. The finish is creamy and sweet with a tinge of bitterness.

O: I'm very impressed by this beer. Great citrus hop presence with a sweet malt and wheat body. I will definitely revisit in the future.

A 12oz bottle with no visible BB date. Picked up at the GBBF a little while back. I've been looking forward to this one...

Poured into a Delirium chalice. A rich sunset hue with good carbonation. Surprisingly clear. Yields a vast head of creamy white foam with good retention; this slowly reduces to a surface layer. The aroma is a kaleidoscope of intense, fruity hops with a backbone of sweet caramel malt. Notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon, citrus, pine, malt and a hint of wheat. Unusually sweet; almost sugary. Superb - not sure this could be improved.

Tastes like a hop barn with a hefty dose of malt chucked in! Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, citrus oils, pine resin, caramel, subtle yeast and stewed hops. Rather sweet but well balanced. A considerable bitterness upon swallowing; dry, spicy and astringent. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly, spicy and dry, with good body. Can't help feeling it ought to be a tad more carbonated though. Quite astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops.

Wow - this is one amazing brew. Now I wish I could grab one whenever I like. A ton of aromatic hops and plenty of malt. The sweetness borders on sugary, but is kept in check by hop bitterness. Can't say I taste much wheat (as this is supposed to be a wheat ale) - it's more like an American IPA in character. Might also benefit from bottle conditioning? But I'm nit-picking; this is a superb beer and goes into my top 10. Add it to your must-try list and grab one if you see it.
