The colour is gold (7 EBC), the liquid is a tad hazy. The compact two finger head is white; it sinks slowly leaving lots of fine lacing.

The mild/creamy smell is bitter-sweet with notes of dough, exotic fruits-flavoured candy, banana skids and a touch of cloves.

The taste is dry and a bit spicy with lime and tangerines. Tart wheat-notes and some rubber/plastic. Sharp yet mild bitterness with some green plants and banana peels. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is bitter with earthy hints and some green plants and unripe fruits.

The carbonation is fresh, the mid-sized bubbles tickles the tongue. The liquid is semi-smooth and a bit harsh.

An unbalanced beer, the wheat and the hops just don't get along.

Huge, four-finger head that settles so very slowly, leaving lots of chunky lace in rings and streaks. After five minutes, there's a very impressive dome of foam. The liquid is dirty gold with some definitive haze.

Lots of caramel aroma.

The flavor is far more earthy and bitter than I expected. The malt is short and lightly sweet. The hop takes over quickly and the finish is quite dry. The aftertaste lasts for a moderate period. The body is neutral and the carbonation a bit high.

I totally bought this because of the shark on the label.

Pours out a clear golden body with a sudsy white head.

Citrus hops jump out first. Then they get a little pinier and resinous.

The wheat comes through on the flavor along with the hops in tow.

The wheat and oats provides nice body to this lighter beer. Fairly bitter for what it is.

Pours a hazy yellow, with a healthy amount of head. The smell is dominated by pineapple and floral hops, with a feint citric/acrid component. The taste is not as sweet as I expected (which is a plus for drinkability), with nice flavours of pineapple and other exotic fruit, on top of a very bitter backbone. Bitter and salty aftertaste, very light body, making for a refreshing drink. Unbalanced, but in a way to suit my personal taste.

Slightly hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has lots of fresh hops. Lemon, lime, grapefruit but also some chives and dill. Taste follows with the same fresh hops notes. Slightly malty at first but gets quite bitter towards the finish and lingers in the aftertaste with grapefruit and pomelo flavor. Body is light and dry but somehow soft and well carbonated. Really easy drinking, hoppy and refreshing session IPA.

This is okay, but I can't help but to feel that I should be liking it more. It's easy to drink, nicely carbonated. There is obviously something going on in the taste, but I am not quite able to put my finger on. Nice general fruity flavors, albeit a bit subdued.

You can do a lot worse than this, but I can't quite knock the feeling that this tastes like a good 6% beer watered down. As such it is one of few beers that I give an overall-score of that is disproportionate to the individual categories.

Pours clear dark honey coloured; head is frothy and offwhite. Aroma is IPA, soft wheat and hops. The flavour carries on with a very pronounced soft grassiness and a leafiness, making this ale quite refreshing. Very hoppy, bright and crisp. Body is light-medium with good carbonation. Very nice sessionable IPA.

A hop forward beer - it boasts on the label but I'm not that convinced. I had much more impressive session IPAs than this, just think about Founders All Day IPA for example. Not bad but it is lacking that punch you would expect to balance out the wateriness of the body.
Like the design with the shark though. Next they could come up with is the bite.
