I believe this beer to be slightly underrated, it's really smooth, well balanced and drinkable. you get some of the citrusy topicalness along with a slight funky spice note like you'd get in a witbier. it's clean, refresing, perfect alcohol content, not quite chuggable but you don't need to sip it either

Poured a slightly cloudy orange/gold with a creamy white head. The head has decent, albeit thin head and some light lacing. The aroma is reminiscent of their Loose Cannon, but slightly milder due to the wheat in the grain bill. The taste is similar. This is like Loose Cannon light which is in no way a bad thing. A little thinner on the body but a nice smooth finish. An interesting take on the IPA.
