After reading some of he review maybe I came with too high of expectations. I like the beer, but it's nowhere near as good as their brown Suggs substitute.

Very clear pour with a great golden color. The smell had some sweetness to it. A little hoppy taste, but not strong or over powering. Very smooth going done.

Overall it's a very good beer, but not sure that I'll be going back for the price it cost.

This is the best IPA I've had. I'm not a fan of IPAs but this was up my alley! Nice grapefruit taste, lower IBU bitterness than a lot of IPAs (64 IBU), and that wheat beer mix makes it much more drinkable than a lot of IPAs.

I know that they consider this a "American Pale Wheat Ale" but this is an IPA to me. It tastes just like Hop Nosh but toned down (that's an IPA.. which I do like). However you categorize this as it is tasty to me! This is better than Hop Nosh. That wheat does wonders for this beer.

I read the beer advocate description for "American Pale Wheat Ale" and it says its an Americanized version of a Hefe Weizen. That gets me interested! You know what, I don't want to call this an IPA any more since I don't like IPA that much. Sign my name on the petition for APWA!

There is a nice blend of sweetness and "hoppiness" in this beer. It has a very nice nose. Gotta love what they put on their bottles! I am curious...they state that the beer has 64.20 for International Bitterness Units (IBUs). Is it acidity/PH? How is that tested? Original gravity and alcohol by volume is certainly easy to test.
