Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Head retention is moderate, with little to no lacing left behind. Aroma is dominated by sweet, bread malts, with a dash of pine hop notes. Flavor profile is more malts, but with a pine and earthy bitter hop side. The malts are earthy, and bread-like. Interesting contradiction between the two. Overall, it's on the bitter side. It leaves a bitter, pine taste in the back of the throat. Mouth feel is smooth, with a medium consistency. Overall, it's not the most impressive brew. It seems to be more bitter for the sake of being bitter.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Long lasting white head with a full IPA flavor. The body seems to lighten during the finish. Nice IPA.

Served on tap at Hopcat Detroit. Nonic pint. Golden and clear, finger and a half white foamy head, quick dissipation to a thin cap. Aroma is floral and grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit rind, wheat notes, and a strong malt backbone. Nice, but not something to have more than one of.

Not much of a head or aroma, but good malt flavor and bitterness. The wheat is pronounced and adds some complexity. Interesting beer, but not one I would buy again.
