Had on-tap at the Mule Bar in Winooski, VT.

A - Pours a hazy golden/orange color. A solid inch of thick head.

S - Very faint smell of citrus, picking up on more of a malty profile. Nothing really standing out too much.

T - Similar to the smell; I am getting very slight hints of citrus fruits, but the wheaty malt really stands out and overpowers everything else.

M - Good balanced carbonation, with a grainy feel to it.

O - This was my first beer from Zero Gravity. A decent beer that is easy to drink. I feel that a lot of the flavors are hidden behind the amount of wheat; but I guess that is why it is a wheat IPA! Like I said, a solid offering, but nothing amazing in my eyes.

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.

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.

Unlike most of Vermont's top IPA's and Double IPA's (Alchemist Heady Topper, Lawson Double Sunshine, and Fiddlehead Second Fiddle) Zero Gravity's Conehead does not have that citrus taste. It is a straight up IPA; very hoppy, great lacing; nose is not over powering; taste is above average.
Got a half growler from my friend Matt at Woodstock Hops & Barley in Woodstock Vermont.
Glad Matt offered this up to me. Although it is not better than the above mentioned brews it is almost even par with them. Really a good brew and one that I had not had before. Conehead, along with others noted above, has changed me from a solid stout guy to more leaning to IPA.
But this is because you can drink more IPA than you can stouts. A Goose Island Proprietor or a Dark Lord will probably move me back to "The Dark Side". Cheers to you all.....
