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.

This was a good idea. How a WIPA should be done

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.

I get a lot of grapefruit in both the aroma and the taste. Tangerine too. The Bitterness and Sourness starts to turn into a sweet hard candy flavor towards the end of the glass. Very good IPA, I would recommend giving it a try if you like IPAs.

Nose is a big mash-up of citrus and tropical fruits... a bit "catty".

Flavor has a mellow sorta grassy hoppiness and is a little mellow... bitterness comes on big late and lingers forever. Not really getting any "wheat" notes... the maltiness is pummeled by the bitterness and hop flavors... pretty dry throughout.

Light body and pretty much perfect carbonation.

A damn fine IPA, I wish my palate was good enough to really pick out and describe the wheat.
