3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amberish, fairly clear, thin frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing. Soft pithy nose, a bit of hop but its subdued. Not detecting the wheatiness, but compared to the pithiness it may not be too noticeable. Hmm, an interesting citrusy hoppiness right up front. Surprised its this citrusy. I expected more of a wheatiness, in flavor and body but that is not to be found. Backside is loaded with pith and citrus rind like hop flavors. While not overly hoppy, it has a mild bitterness. Really not sure what part the "Wheaten" plays in this, but its minor. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Very pithy on the finish, with mild citrus like bitterness. Not half bad, but if I were to say that this was a well balanced Wheat IPA I would be lying. Its certainly on the IPA side. Respectable at least.

Nose of light grapefruit and wheat malt, touch of lemon. Pours golden amber, thin head. Flavors of light grapefruit up front, wheat malt in the middle, a little caramel, and lemony citrus finish. Lightly floral as well. Hops are mild in terms of assertiveness, and sweetness is medium. Decent carbonation and mouth feel.

A pretty decent IPA with some hops and a nice dark color but a certain heaviness from the wheat that isn’t good.
