Bready, piney, citrusy aroma. Taste has fruity, tropical hops, wheat, orange, and crackery malts. Very nice. Moderate bitterness. Leaves a bright, clean, hoppy aftertaste. Full bodied but still crisp and refreshing. This is a great IPA/wheat beer hybrid.

Slightly hazed, deep golden tangerine color with a nice lid of fluffy off-white.

Lots of sweet fruity hops in the nose are balanced by sweet wheat (see flavor).

Grrreat! flavor. Apricots, tangerines, peaches, grapefruits of the pink variety come in mellowly mixing with sweet, lightly toast, pale wheat, and a light grapefruit rind bitterness. Medium-full body with a perfect amount of zesty, tingly carb. Lightly cloying fruits and bitterness linger before pleasantly fading away.

"The Guni's" come through with a hellava sumpin'-sumpin' in this brew. Score one for APWA.

Poured into a pint glass. This is a nice golden orange hue with a one inch layer of lacey white head.

This just smells great, first it smells a bit like a juicy orange with some cherry sweetness in the background, maybe a hint of pineapple as well.

The citrus fruits come through upfront followed by a hint of alcohol spice in the first sip. Citrus is definately the dominanting flavor, but there are some pine notes.

There is a touch of harsh hop flavors but overall this is still very pleasant to drink.

Poured with a small, off-white head that diminished quickly to a thin film. Body was mostly clear with some haziness, with a nice, dark-orange color. Fantastic aroma... hops, with some citrus and wheat in there as well. Medium-body on the palate; thin, but with some slight creaminess to it as well. Average carbonation and a bitter finish. Great flavor - citrus and a small amount of wheat at first, then a very bitter aftertaste that is long-lasting. A great wheat ale / IPA... whatever the official designation may be.
