It looks like orange brown muddy water with an inch of white foam dapped on top. A bit ugly! The moderate strength nose is a little resinous and a lot fruity, some grapefruit with sweeter mango and pear like aromas. Not ugly at all! Crisp with bitterness on the low side, resinous hops and some grapefruit flavor make the juicy flavor profile. The hop bitterness spikes at the quick finish. Mouth feel is fairly clean and crisp but softens as the high carbonation dissipates. The medium body has a little weight. A fine offering that leaves you wanting more. Get some.

Canned on 7/23/18

Pours a hazy but bright orange with a nice finger of sturdy, foamy head.

Aroma brings wheat to the forefront with some subtle undertones of floral hops; shrouded in wheat, I'm also getting soft tones of earthy citrus, light pine and spice; the earthy notes are very detailed and dominant, with citrus appearing only intermittently.

Taste starts with some dank citrus tones and orange peel that quickly develop earthy qualities; light herbal spice accompany wheat notes, with some rye bread and tree bark making an appearance as well; restrained, and with some interesting earthy elements that make for a quirky, but solid flavor profile.

Mouthfeel finds a decent balance between soft and juicy, with only the slightest bit of uneven carbonation throwing it off at times; definitely clean and refreshing, though, with a sharp crispness that really stands out on the finish.

A solid IPA with some unexpected but well-executed earthy notes throughout; sometimes felt as though it was holding back a bit, but even then, its refreshing qualities shined through really nicely; I think that's how I'll remember this one.

Canned 3/12/18 (19 days ago)

L - 1-finger fizzy head atop a murky orange body.

S - citrus, flaked wheat, bread, pine.

T - follows the nose. Wheat is very forward, but balanced by the citrus and piney hops. Low sweetness, no booziness, moderate bitterness.

F - medium body with medium-low carb.

O - as good as a wheat ipa gets.

My 600th beer. Poured to an Ora et Labora taster.

A: Body is brilliant, of orange and yellowish hues having a totally opaque density. No light goes through this. The head, thanks to the wheat, is viable and still living at half a finger thick. Big retention. Minor lacing. But looking awesome.
S: Aroma is mostly resinous, having just a few minor hints of tropicalia (pineapple and mango) and citrus (tangerine and orange peel).
T: Taste begins with an amazing sweetness of banana followed right after by the tropical and citrusy touches. It's so layered. It's banana first than mango, than passion fruit, then pineapple, then tangerine and finished in oranges. In between there's a resinous back-bone profile accompanying all of this, like a bass line when the guitar player is making his solo. It's pure magic.
M: Body is medium, having literally medium density but having a very velvety carbonation makes this beer so drinkable. Alcohol is unnoticed. Bitterness is solid but not overwhelming.
O: This is my first The Veil (solo) beer and I'm very happy with it. It's an amazing Wheat IPA that I'd love to try again and again.
