This pours in a light, slightly hazy yellow straw color.

The aroma has grapefruit, some wheat, orange.

The flavor has a big juicy orange, melon, and grapefruit flavor. The beer has a wonderful sweet wheaty and malty middle. The finish is a bit of a bitter dry finish.

I would call this an IPA like Flower Power instead of a wheaty pale ale. It doesn't have the pop that some West Coast IPAs have because of the wheat and malt. I like the balance of this beer. I would recommend it for people trying to get into IPAs because of the good smooth bitterness.

Poured in a hefeweizen glass. Nice honey color with a three finger head.

The aroma wasn't too strong with some grapefruit and citrus.

Nicely carbonated.

The taste was excellent. Very strong grapefruit-citrus- a prominent characteristic of the beer.
Overall, a solid beer. Tastes more like an IPA. The aroma is a bit light. The finish is the dominant
offering of the beer.
