Refreshing, sessionable, IPA. Nice to have something that is not HEAVILY hopped considering that’s all you get in the NW these days. 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. dwyerpg (6413) - 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. bpreo (2943) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Dry-Hopped Wheat India Pale Ale. You do the research, and I’ll do the tasting. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2012
A - Pours an almost clear copper-orange with a finger of frothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some light lace.
S - Aroma is a mix orange and grapefruit hops with some pine hops and some sweet bready malts.
T - Starts off with some sweet bready malts with some pine and resiny hops. Through the middle, some light grapefruit hops come through with some more grassy hop and some bitterness with a bit of caramel malts. The finish is a mix of pine and grapefruit hops, some light bitterness, with some sweet caramel and biscuit malts.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.
D - Very drinkable. Pretty good balance. Good hop and malt balance.

Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a thich white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of wheat, citrus, and pine. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with a semi dry finish. Overall this is a good tasting northwest ipa with a nice added wheat flavor. Was only on tap for the longest time. Glad they finally bottled it.

12oz bottle from Total Wine Wittales (884) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Appearance: Pours clear dark amber with a small foamy beige head and some lacing left as is dissipates quickly to a small ring
Aroma: Dusty, earthy hops, caramel and citrus
Taste: Caramel, grapefruit and bitter pine
A nice, easy drinking IPA.
Appearance was clear orangish root beer with creamy off white lasting 1 finger head, lacing throughout. Aromas are cirtus, pine, wheat, spices upfront with simi-sweet malt lurking inside. Taste was pine, grapefruit, orange, lemon, slight wheat, malt backbone is sublte. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with meduim body. The average length piney resinous finish a tad bitter for me. Little to much resin... bhensonb (15766) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours darkly hazy orange/amber with a beige head. Aroma is malty aneda bit citrus. Flavor is not quite malty, but sort of. And there’s a dose of citrus. Not untasty.
