Served in a perfect pint glass
A - This beer is amber with golden highlights. It is topped with three inches of beige head.
S - The first thing I smell is caramel malt. This is a sweet smelling beer. Disappointing given the "hoppy' in the name. I do get some floral hops as it warms.
T - The taste is sweeter than I care for. I get little as far as hops goes. It has some toffee and caramel taste along with the wheat.
M - Smooth. The wheat makes for a smooth transition down my throat.
O - This is a disappointing beer. I have loved all the Odd Side Ales I have tried so far. This beer was way off the others. I will have to grab a Citra Pale Ale to cleanse my palate.

Oh, Me So Hoppy To Wheat You looks like a red sun; it has a fiery amber tone and heavily blistered complexion. Clarity is compromised despite the bright highlights. It also has a head with a soapy lather the likes of which would give the health inspector an erection.
The beer certainly smells 'derisious'. It's full of hoppiness of all sorts: piny, citric, herbal. If the dark colour didn't give it away this "Wheat ale" is really more of an IPA. The bouquet includes lots of mandarin orange notes (part of the Asian theme?) as well as tree resins.
Wheat is overlooked on the palate as well; thick, toasty, biscuity notes of barley malt dominate the flavour, though grass clippings and citrus fruits fade slowly into the aftertaste. It's bready and toasty enough (with just enough marmalade) to spawn a different type of "breakfast" beer.
All this hoppiness does indeed give it a finish that 'lingers long time'. The texture is resiny and has a dry, pithy quality like that of a citrus peel. OddSide Ales doesn't list the level of IBUs but it's got to be up there - it's bitter enough you'd think the beer was trying to punish you for drinking it. That's OK - I'm a glutton for this kind of punishment.
'Oh, Me So Hoppy To Wheat You' is indeed a beer I'm "hoppy" to have tried. It is definitely more of an IPA than Wheat Ale; the wheat ensures an ultra-fluffy, super-resilient head but that's about the extent of its influence. If you're a hophead who wants to expand their portfolio (at least superficially) then a purchase of this beer will surely result in a 'happy ending'.

A pours a golden brownish color with goos clarity and a nice head that reduces to a thin white cap.
S citrus notes, orange peel, piney, caramel malts.
T big hop punch full of citrus flavor balanced by a faint sweet caramel malt tastes and finishes with a nice bitter snap.
O this is a real solid ipa that is worth a shot.
