With the Amarillo hops tastes more of a pale than wheat. That is good for hop heads. Lite flavor.

At times is overrated around here, which is a shame..It gets built up to be just something its not. Its not earth shattering but it is a damn good beer

Like a sweet pale ale. Different and good. Not great for my palate.

Not what I was expecting but still very good. Seems more of a wheat pale ale rather than a pale wheat ale (if that makes any sense at all). An instant favorite.
