22 oz bomber bought from a local Mom and Pop convenience store when i was a little buzzed.
Judging by the other ratings this is either WAY early or more likely been sitting since spring!!
Poured into my PBR goblet..this is actually quite a handsome beer..amber color and a lovely thick,creamy eggshell white head that stays.
Aroma however is quite subdued and consists mainly of weak resiny hop and cream of corn!!
Taste however is better again the resiny hop, balanced by creamy caramel ,a touch of honey and weak wheat... certainly smooth and really pleasing.
I liked the palate/mouthfeel of this brew it was very smooth and balanced.
Actually an OK beer especially having sat under the florescent for a long while

Bottle... Poured clear amber with a moderate, eggy, off-white head which faded quickly. Nose had some wheaten spiced and sweet malts with a dollop of hops. Mild on the hoppy front with citrus and pine. Balanced and low bitterness. The wheat has really tamed the hops here. brewguru627 (2) - - OCT 22, 2012 does not count
Refreshing, sessionable, IPA. Nice to have something that is not HEAVILY hopped considering that’s all you get in the NW these days. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Hazy burnt orange with a short head. Aroma of tea, soy, nutty malt, and grassy hops. Light, dry bitter flavor. Light-med body, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a solid bitter finish. dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 8, 2012
A pretty decent IPA with some hops and a nice dark color but a certain heaviness from the wheat that isn’t good.

12 oz. bottle, EDT 7/28/12- Pours hazy brownish red with a thin yet sustaining head. The aroma is very citrusy, actually hoppy at first sniff, and wheat, pretty sweet, which is kind of odd. The taste is simple, wheat and a mild hop bite, candy like sweetness again in the taste, what is that. This was way out of balance, and that sweetness just didn’t work for the beer, it was moderately offputting, lets hope the others in the wheat variety pack are better than this. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2012
12 oz bottle from the Wheat Beer Variety Pack. Expired on July 28. Pours cloudy orange with a thin off-white collapsing head. Aroma consists of bready malt, wet river rock, caramel, popcorn. Taste starts out malty sweet before quickly becoming bitter. The sweetness is almost cloying, and the bitterness, which attempts to keep it in check, is almost over the top before the cloying sweetness comes back. ODD. Highly carbonated with an oily mouthfeel. This has probably suffered due to its age, so someone give me a fresh bottle so I can re-rate this thing, please. shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2012
On tap at the brewery. This looked interesting, given its unique character. It basically came across as a wheat-beer and IPA mix, but a little too sweet and sticky. I would have liked it to show of the grassy, wheaty notes more and let of a malt body. mjg74 (3106) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle from BevMo. Lightly hopped nose with a fair amount of graininess. Sweet and somewhat hoppy. Some citric hop bitterness. Very mild, yet drinkable ipa. User134089 (1644) - - AUG 5, 2012
Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Aug. 4, 2012 (picked it up for $1.59 at BevMo in La Mesa, Calif., on Aug. 2, 2012). About a finger of head the dissipated pretty fast. Caramel amber iced tea color. Minimal lacing on the top/sides. No retention.
Smelled a good whiff of citrus hops (lemon and lime), pine, caramel, toffee, wheat, bread and cereal.
Tasted caramel, honey, wheat, bread, grain, cereal, pine and wet citrus (lemon) hops. Fairly close to the nose. Also some rye iced tea on the tongue.
Medium body. Thin texture. Below average carbonation. Bitter finish.
Pretty good beer. Nice and consistent all the way down. Good heavier summer brew.
