An Imperial IPA made with wheat to keep the beer light bodied and a hazy white. Big hop flavours and aromas of tropical fruit and gooseberries from the Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops.

This poured a nice golden colour with a thin white head that lasted for quite a while. The nose has citrus and tropical fruit up front with a sweet maltiness balancing it out. Was actually expecting a bit more hop forwardness but the malt balanced it out. The taste is more malt forward than I expected as well. There is a honey sweetness along with some bread and pineapple, but non of the alcohol burn you might expect from a 9.2% ABV. Even the mouthfeel doesn't have that burn and is on the high medium side. A very good beer. (535 characters)

Pours into an imperial nonic a dull lighter golden with a thick frothy white head that shows good lacing.Very citrusy in the nose with lemon really showing thru,some herbal hops underneath a bit of toasted grain as well.A big splash of pithy lemon flavors on the palate with some aspirin and a slight medicinal note,quite dry with a bit of toasted cereal grain.Not bad you wouldn't know it was wheat based if it didn't say really. (431 characters)

341ml bottle, day 7 of the Parallel 49/Central City Mystery Gift Holiday Countdown - so far, only 3 out of 7 for new beers - I fear that ratio will only drop as we carry on.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale golden amber hue, with two pudgy fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some stellar chunky layered lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of bitter orange and white grapefruit rind, mildly funky yeast, gritty, grainy caramel malt, a touch of biscuity toffee, a whole morn's worth of forest floor pine green goodness, and a testy, brash, and needing of a good slap upside the head, booziness. The taste is rather sweet bready, somewhat doughy caramel malt, a tame chalky flintiness, mixed up citrus fruit and piney/leafy bitterness notes, a staid sticky yeastiness, and further alcohol-adjacent leafy, weedy, and floral hops.

The carbonation is pretty low-key in its wee, almost undetectable frothiness, the body a heady medium-full weight for the purported style, and equally smooth, with an unnecessary, but surely welcome creaminess. It finishes on the sweet side, grainy caramel and fruity orchard and bitter pine forest hops what's hittin' the city right now.

I've seen mention of this as a 'white' IPA, but since that is noted absolutely nowhere on the bottle, and sure, there's a hint of yeast, I dunno, maybe just all beer is made with it, y'know? Anyways, a killer DIPA, the well-sublimated, but still evident alcohol doing well to ingratiate itself with the large and equally in charge malt and hops. Yep, this is good stuff - oh, and yeah, cool pop culture riffing with the name and label, P49! (1,675 characters)

650ml bottle.

This beer pours a cloudy amber with two fingers of off-white head and visible carbonation. The head mostly dissipates within a few minutes, leaving behind some bubbles across the top of the beer and some streaks on the side of the glass.

The smell is fruity! I'm mainly picking up pineapple and melon. Very appealing.

The taste is an interesting combination of tropical fruits, grassy bitterness and pine. I like it, but I'm not sure I could drink much of it. It's pretty bitter (and it's 9.2%). I probably would be better off splitting this with someone!

Note to self: maybe stick to IPAs instead of Imperial/Double IPAs. (640 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Light Orange with a moderate amount of head. A bit cloudy, but still a good looking beer.

Aroma: Wonderful sharp, tropical aroma, very similar to snap crackle pop. Alomost seems like they used the same hop profile.

Taste: Tropical assault, just wonderfull. Citrussy bitterness. Orange, lemons, pineapple.

Muthfeel: A little light for anIPA, but good slickness. Hoppy goodness.

Overall it seems like this is a white ipa version of Snap crackle pop. Sooo similar, but the taste isn't as intense. Th body is much lighter. Great beer, but I prefer Snap. (565 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: hazy pale gold body under a few fingers of ivory foam that left laces down the glass

S: lots of pale fruit and citrus, strong sugary aromas with edges of something floral and herbal

T: big sweet citrus of lemon and what I guess is gooseberry - very juicy and sweet

M: smooth and somewhat lush, medium weight, moderate carbonation

O: hard to evaluate if this is what they were going for - tastes almost like a sugary hefeweizen with lots of fruit, packing a high abv punch - not as bitter as I would have liked, but decent - perhaps the wheat base is not to my liking when I'm thinking Citra and Nelson-hopped DIPA? (621 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is relatively clear pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving delicate lacing covering the surface and a collar consisting of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of gooseberries from the Nelson Sauvin hops are present in the nose.
T: As in the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of gooseberries and also has some notes of tropical fruits and hints of citrus. A moderate amount of bitterness is present. No alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't as heavy in body as one would expect because the use of wheat malts lightens things up, placing this more in line with the amount of body you would expect from a standard IPA. This lightness also allows the hop flavors to shine through in the taste.

22 oz bottle, not your usual shape though. No date.

It describes itself as an Imperial Wheat IPA. Hazy pale golden color, bright white head. Fairly accurate - lighter body, very little malt flavors, just a little sweetness to balance the hop flavor. hop profile is a bit earthy and floral. easy drinking. (309 characters)
