Pours clouded golden with a foamy white, well-retained head. Patchy lacing sticks down the glass.

The smell is spicy coriander, orange, grapefruit, possibly a hint of lemon, and a wheat tang.

The taste is of sweet tangerine and bitter grapefruit backed by wheat tang and spicy coriander. It's an interesting, flavorful mix that works well. Dry, spicy, sweet and bitter (slightly sour) well-balanced, refreshing finish.

It is creamy smooth. Refreshing and easy-drinking.

Amarillo hops are enough to make it citric juicy but allow a subtle wheat tang and a dash of pepper to come through. A unique, refreshing brew that is complex and well-made! Very enjoyable!

Served from the can in a tumbler at Ranalli's.

Dunno how this bachelor party made its way to this random Wisconsin-centric bar, but who am I to argue here, right? Anyway, this stuff pours a cloudy brass topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises bright flowers, wet grass, greens, and a hint of cardamom. The taste brings in more of the same, then, quite unfortunately, things take a sudden and direct turn toward a kale- and cabbage-filled path, the former taking preeminence. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, this probably could have been a decent "white IPA", but the strange and thoroughly bitter vegetable character does a massive disservice.
