Enjoyed on-tap at American Flatbread, Burlington Hearth about a week ago. Zero Gravity brews have always struck me as reliably good yet often underwhelming, but I gave this unique style a try while dining there. Seemed to be a 12oz pour.

A: Cloudy orange, very well done and attractive.

S: Fruity, citrusy, very pleasant. I believe there was an emphasis on Citra hops.

T: Significant citrus hop profile with a background of adequate, yet not overpowering hops. Extremely pleasant, hoppy, and drinkable.

M: Spot on for an AIPA.

O: I like Zero Gravity's R. Prime IPA but, compared to this, it can't stand up. Conehead is one of the better AIPAs I've had outside of Hill's Susan and I will undoubtedly return to grab a $9 growler of this while it lasts. Try it if you can. (775 characters)

we need more beer like this, less belgian, less coriander, more hops! finally a wheat beer hopped like an ipa but not corrupted by the same generic belgian stuff they all seem to be now. its not a hoppy wit, its an ipa! love it. this is light in color with not as much cloudiness as expected for a wheat brew. the nose has a lot of hops on it, citrusy but mild, cascade type alpha acid, and a sturdy dry hop on this i suspect. flavor has plenty of bitterness all the way through it, no doubt about it being an ipa, and my critique is oddly that there isnt much malt flavor to this. i want more wheat malt popping this off. its too light in body, i want some grit from the wheat. its too passive there for me, but they got the important part right i think. close to being amazing. mouthfeel is nice, a little light in body, but there is some hop oils swirling around and a lot of bubbles. fun stuff, nice for summer. (915 characters)

On tap at Three Penny. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Big white head that doesn't last. Some lacing and minimal surface foam.

Smell - Bright citrus hop. Lots of orange. And then wheat takes over. Really strong wheat smell.

Taste - Bright hop. Citrusy again. Fades to a hint of sugar, but grain is strong again. Lots of grainy wheat. Very slight bitterness and a grassy finish.

Mouthfeel - It's really grainy. Detracts from the smoothness of the finish. Medium body otherwise.

Overall - Tasty hops masked by wheat. Otherwise quite good. (567 characters)
