Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, and pineapple aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great tropical aroma and some tasty flavors.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured a partially cloudy yet glowing light golden color, good carbonation yielding a nice fluffy white cap with great head retention. The lacing was spotty but plenty of bubbles.

S-: A small measure of what smothered in citrus and tropical fruits. Very nice and appealing nose.

T: Nice tropical fruits upfront which really carries throughout the beer. The wheat base is noticed underneath the hops. A little bit of sweetness mid palate. The finish is rather refreshing, not really bitter, just a shovel full of tropical fruits

M: Medium body, well carbonated, the feel is nice and full due to the wheat and the taste of the beer is nice. A little sweet but pretty dry as well

O: Very nice and easy to drink. I really enjoyed what the wheat brought to the table on this IPA and choice of hops were superb.

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.

22oz bottle from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $3.99 Pours a slightly hazed pale orange with a nice frothy and thick white head..that stays a while. Fine aromas of mainly fruity,juicy citric hop very fresh and very inviting. Taste is similar to aroma but has more malt sweetness and nice bitter long lasting after taste. Palate is thinnish and i think this intended for this August period in Oregon. A nice drinkable Summer IPA

From Notes
12oz bottle purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $1.59. No freshness date was visible. This is the first beer I’ve ever had that was labeled as a wheat IPA.

Poured a hazy golden amber color, with a big, creamy off-white head. Excellent head retention and lots of lace.

The aroma was of piney hops. There was also an earthy malt aroma, no doubt from the wheat malt. While the smell was primarily hoppy, the maltiness was stronger than many IPAs.

The taste was similar to the smell. Piney hop flavor stood out the most, but there was a big, earthy wheat malt backbone.

Medium bodied, with good carbonation. The mouthfeel was somewhat oily.

I wouldn’t recommend this beer to an extreme hophead looking for a fix, but there was lots of tasty flavor in this beer. I could stick to it for a night’s quaffing with no complaints.

22oz : SN IPA Glass

Clear, golden with a foamy, white head.

Sweet, tropical, citric fruits, light resinous notes.

Great, hoppy tropical, citric notes for the most part in the palate.

Medium+ body, foamy carbonation.

A very nice wheat IPA. Lots of hop characteristic without overwhelming the palate.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Chill hazed gold with a decent white head and lace.

S: Citrus, orange peel, wheaty bread, some pine, grapefruit & grapefruit pith, some resin and dankness as well.

T&MF: Moderate clingy dank bitterness; pine and resin...grapefruit and orange/peel as well. Wheat malt carries the body a bit, and it finishes dry. The body itself is light/medium with decent carbonation.

O: Good, not great. Not as hoppy and exceptional as I remember...

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From a bottle with no freshness date. Hazy amber with two fingers of off white head that has staying power. Plentiful lacing.
Smell is big piney hop resins.
Taste is pine resin hop flavors a mild amount of citrus and a good amount of wheat and other malts make this more balanced than a typical AIPA.
Mouthfeel is about medium for the style with good amount of carbonation and a long dry finish.
Overall an easy drinking wheat IPA. The pine forward aspect leads me to believe this is a fairly old bottle.
