[Best served in a Tulip glass]

It poured a nice light to medium yellow with a slight orange hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) white rocky head that lasted only a short while leaving behind some nice spotty residue that pretty much lasted throughout thus producing some good sticky lacing.

The aroma was a tad sweet and rather hoppy with a mix of floral and citrus hops, a nice sweet grain malt and an earthy yeast with definite notes of citrus (grapefruit and tangerine) and maybe a little peach.

Now the taste was unique and had a mild malty sweetness to it with a nice touch of bitterness and a strong hint of fruit initially, and pretty much had the same flavor characteristics throughout with a slightly stronger citrus hoppy presence at the end. The flavor stuck around for a decent amount of time leaving behind a nice hoppy aftertaste which lasted well after the swallow.

The mouthfeel was just a bit beyond light in body and had a mild dry yet syrupy texture with a nice soft relaxing carbonation.

Overall an IPA that is just a little sweeter than the norm, which was rather appealing and possessed a nice fruitiness yet still ended with the hoppiness that you get from a really good IPA.

Sixer mixer from Oades

A & S: piney and citrus hops. Semi-clear yellow beer. White fizzy head. Lively bubbles rising from the top. Not much lacing. Pours a half a finger, dies to a thin layer but then it is retained till the finish.

T & M: Basically perfect blend of citrus (lemon) and piney hops. Balanced with a light, sweet malty backbone. Finish is semi dry and semi bitter. With a touch of yeast. Medium bodied but crisp and smooth. Pretty highly carbonated, but becomes quite less carbonated as it warms but is still shape in carbonation. Super drinkable. Aftertaste carries on for a long time.

O: Best American Pale Wheat ive tried to date by a long shot Oberon has nothing on this beer!
