i didnt care for this one for a lot of reasons. it may have been a little past its seasonal charm, being december and all, but i thought it tasted metallic, overly bogged down by dead yeast, and concentrated orange flavoring. the pour was less cloudy than i expected after reading the label, its pure yellow, with a small but fading white head. there is a orangey lemony aroma over an extract wheat malt base, pale and boring. the flavor is a mess, citrus first, odd minerally vibes next, and leftover yeast is all i can taste at the end, sour or spoiled in some sense. maybe im making it sound worse than it really is, but to me the flavors are really off, and if this is the intended flavor profile, the brewers just need to revision this one all together. still the feel is okay, medium in body for the style, light overall. fine carbonation, but the aftertaste is offputting, especially when it warms up a little bit. i wont buy this again.

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden-yellow color with an inch thick frothy white head. Leaves a decent lacing.
Smell - Citrus, wheat, lemon zest, and
Taste - This is a very bitter beer, almost like a pale ale. Orange, citrus, wheat, and allspice.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Foams up right as you sip it.

Cloudy deep orange in body with white frothy head. Smells of citrus, rind, grass, faint mint. Tastes of grass, citrus, citrus rind, some bitterness from a generous amount of hops and some off-flavors and vague strawberry are present as well. Light bodied with light carbonation. More a pale than a wheat and off-flavors run rampant.

Pours a cloudy orange/blond with a huge head into my glass. Funny how they call a pale wheat ale a "pale ale".
The citrus theme carries over, though not as strong as the Iroquois Pale Ale. Wheat adds a clove essence to the overall palate.
Plenty of Cascade and Centennial goodness here. Again, not as strong and the clove from the wheat clashes as well.
Mouthfeel isn't as great either. The clove overrides any benefit that you'd get from using citrusy hops.
Not bad overall. Just not that great. I'd stick with the Iroquois Pale Ale.
