Translucent orange ale. Somewhat weak head. Descent retention and some lace spots.
Fresh orange, pine and coriander aroma with hints of malt in there as well.
Flavor is bright and fresh with hop characters prominent. Grapefruit, dish soap and pine needles describe the hops well. Malt is sturdy in the background and provides a mild sweetness which holds the brew together. Well balanced.
Medium bodied and quite drying from the hops. Plenty of lively carbonation.
Good stuff. I like the wheat IPA concept. Problem is its hard to detect the wheat characters underneath the aggressive hops. This beer allows just enough of the wheat flavor to come through.
