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.

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.

Wow, this brew is unlike any i have ever experienced thus far! Very floral fragrances of orange, pineapple, grapefruit, and citrus. The floral and citrus flavors are more prevalent that the malt and hops. If you like citrusy beer you will love this brew!
