A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale

12 oz stubbie bottle.
Good, golden clarity on the pour with an impressive amount of head and some nice sticky lace (just like that you would expect from a West Coast IPA – read on!).
Nose and tastes are ALL light grapefruit with a fairly seriously dry finish which puts this beer firmly in the American DIPA/IPA category in terms of its tastes. There is a faint fruit aftertaste and the wheat lingers a little in the background, but it is very faint and without knowing that this was supposed to be a Wheat based beer I would never, ever detect it.
There is a bit of peachy, orange floral taste in the background as well, but this is essentially drinking like a west coast IPA.
The beer does back away from the bitterness a little as one drinks the beer, but there is still a lingering feeling that you are drinking a “C” hop based beer.
