12 ounce bottle of indeterminate age poured into a La Chouffe tulip. Hazy amber with a nice soft and clingy head. Digging that lace.
Fresh bready malt and wheat aromas up front with subdued fruitiness in the background. Plenty bitter, almost to the point of astringency, but with little in the way of hop flavor to provide interest. Some faded leafiness and citrus. Rather lively in spite of being on the thickish side for an IPA, aided in part by the tang of the wheat and in part by zippy carbonation. I've run into a few wheat IPAs I liked pretty well, and I'm inclined to try this one again if I can be guaranteed of freshness. This particular sample, though, missed the mark.
