Medium haze golden hued whispy ale -ish head, about the appearance I would expect from something called a double wheat ipa.
Smell is all a candy dough confectioner's making. Some across the atlantic notions and vinousness are an afterthought.
Taste has the makings of a mediocre IPA but none of the "double wheat" notion presents itself to speak of. I always say expectations are premeditated resentment. I'm not resentful of the beer but i expected a twist of banana and clove esters with hops in some kind of twisted showdown freak show, and I wanted a ticket to that. Instead it's kind of a convoluted IPA that doesn't drink like an IPA should. The 100 IBUs are there i guess, but not wowing me and I haven't had an IPA in a month, so i figured my taste buds would explode. They did not.
Full ass bodied.
drinkability: This was a chore to finish. And by my estimation a double wheat IPA should not be such.
I'm a pretty darn big fan of Midnight Sun and will continue to be but this one won't be a repeater.
