I got the idea to make a beer like this after having a beer that was very similar from Germany. It was not a typical IPA as it still had the malty characteristics of a good German Weizen, however it was almost perfectly balanced out by the cascade hops, without being to much of an IPA. The best way to describe it would be walking a tightrope between the two styles.
The name of this beer translates to: Good Wheat IPA, I just liked giving it the German touch
