On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours a slightly murky light orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some really nice tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same and finishes with a malt presence. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a great aroma and a tasty set of flavors.

Pours a cloudy golden orange with a white head. Orange and grapefruit hops on the nose with lots of pine. A mild bread and wheat sweetness, some sweet, candied citrus peel, and a touch of tropical fruit. A nice balance of bitterness and sweet hops and malt on the palate. Grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and mild pineapple along with bitter pine hop character. A bit of malt sweetness to go with it.

Attractive rich yellow amber color in the big New Belgium tulip. Plenty of suds with a spritzy mouthfeel. Big nose of flowery, fruity hops.

Warm and malty with a sharp mouthfeel. Brewer says this is 50% wheat. It does give the brew a tangy edge along with the toasty Pale Ale flavor. Hops are redolent with fruit. The Nelson Sauvin mango and pineapple flavors along with some just plain bitter grapefruit pith. Bitterness overall is more than ample, with that acidic spiciness of the big IPA. Better than average hop flavor, but less drinkable than I'd like.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Liticker's Liquor & Deli in Ocean Beach.

Had a pint at the brewery, and I suggest you do the same. This is a great example of a wheat IPA. I've had some that were too sweet, and some just not hoppy enough. This makes the best of the hybrid style for a beer than slightly reminiscent of Belgian IPAs, but also takes cues from light-bodies West Coast hop monsters.

The wheat lends a lighter body than you'd expect from a 6.9% beer, with just a light wheat bread sweetness. The hops taste and feel wonderfully dry and spicy, but drops of floral and citrus fruit drop in to keep this from becoming an American take on the saison. Not only is this IPA delicious, but it's a fresh take on the style—something that's difficult to find.

Served on-tap at Beachwood BBQ, on to the beer:

Muddy yellow brown body with a long lasting head and plenty of sticky lacing around the glass. Pure West Coast hops in the nose, and in full force. It's a bitter citrus medley. Orange, grapefruit, and hop leaves are among the most prominent of the aromas.

Hop juice on top of more hop juice. It's delicious yet on the border of being overkill IMO. Grapefruit juice dominates this sense, pine, bittersweet citrus, and resin tag along. The beer has a medium-full body, and well placed carbonation.

A surprisingly intense experience, perhaps because it takes the character of a Double IPA. Don't be surprised if you end up "milking" the pint.

3.66/5  rDev -4.4%

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Deep rusted yellow, and slightly murky orange body, with a cloud appearance. Head is a good four fingers tall with about two fingers of retention and an off white color. Slightly soapy, with a creamy looking top.

Solid hop forward nose. Juicy fruit and spicy action on the hop angle. Hints faint tropical and some sweet grapefruit mixed in with some vanilla and woody like sweetness to match. Very nice, and simple.

Palate comes surprisingly different. Thick earth hop and woody bitterness. Very bitter finish with a hint of burning ash quality. Sweetness is hardly detected, letting the bitterness become dominant and bigger.

Overall not bad, but missing much of the chewy wheat depth I associate with that malt addition and the hop profile.

Big thanks to MrKennedy for this one and pours a clear very golden hue with suddiest two finger head and clingy lacing everywhere,the smell is a good mix of NZ and West Coast hops but mostly NZ with aromas of gooseberries,a sweet herbalness,lychees and citrus but honestly it's all about the Nelson sauvin I'm smelling,the mouthfeel is very smooth well carbonated but a little light and the tastes are very pedestrian but tasty with hints of citrus,pineapple,berries,a touch of sweet wheat and finished with a passionfruit bittersweetness and overall it's tasty but a touch pedestrian for me cheers.
