Reviewed based on tasting notes from a blind pale ale tasting.

12 oz. bottle inside a paper bag poured into a plastic tasting cup.

A- Slightly hazy light amber.

S- Similar to taste.

T- Tropical, juicy, fruit forward hops. Citrus notes as well. Malts add some balance, but dominated by hops bitterness.

M- Clean and crisp mouthfeel.

O- Great brew! Like the little pale ale brother to Sculpin. Not sure if the wheat played much of a role in the success of this beer, so it could be considered off style.

Pours a cloudy orange/blond with a huge head into my glass. Funny how they call a pale wheat ale a "pale ale".

The citrus theme carries over, though not as strong as the Iroquois Pale Ale. Wheat adds a clove essence to the overall palate.

Plenty of Cascade and Centennial goodness here. Again, not as strong and the clove from the wheat clashes as well.

Mouthfeel isn't as great either. The clove overrides any benefit that you'd get from using citrusy hops.

Not bad overall. Just not that great. I'd stick with the Iroquois Pale Ale.
