Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger, fine white head with good retention and light lacing. Mild aroma of pine and citrus hops and light bready malt. Flavor is light pine, citrus and faintly herbal hops and a light neutral malt. There is a light wheat ale component, but I'm not sure I would have identified it if I didn't already know this was a wheat IPA. Nice moderately creamy body. I have to guess this is related to the recently released Hop Project #136 Wheat India Pale Ale, but the hops are much more subdued here. The same light, unobtrusive malt and mild wheat character are present. This is a nice low key IPA, but I'm surprised the hops are more mellow in this version (the hops were very fresh and complex in the #135. The wheat component gives this a nice dry, balanced finish.

2.23/5  rDev -44.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Looks quite nice with a big foam on the clear yellow brew. Plenty of spritz in the mouth. Smell is rather acidic and not at all hoppy. The foam even has good retention. Surprisingly thin body with an unpleasant oiliness.

Flavor is an immediate eye-opener. There is some sweetness, which is more like batrley malt than a wheat, and then too much acidity. There is plenty of citrus all right, but it's distinctly lemony orange juice and grapefruit juice. Aftertaste is a long, harsh bitter burn. It doesn't taste like hops.

I would be curious to try this on tap, but I would stay away from the bottles. It's on their current list of beers so it must not always be this awful. It doesn't quite tast infected, but it's an odd and undrinkable citrus acidity. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.
