Appearance: Faintly hazy blonde with a big white head that leaved a little lacing.

Smell: Strong hop smell - piney and floral.

Taste: Strong bitter bite up front followed by a hefty malt and wheat backbone. Mild bitter aftertaste. Alcohol was completely hidden to me.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and thick body (compared to most IPAs).

Overall: More like an IPA than a wheat beer. At first it tastes like a lot of American pale ales, but the thickness and malt backbone set it apart.
