Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, and pineapple aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great tropical aroma and some tasty flavors.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color and an impressive head that sheets he pint glass as it is drained

Smell: Bready with tropical fruit and a hint of pith

Taste: Bready flavors underpin the hops, which bring tropical fruit (pineapple, lychee and papaya) and tangerine tones through the middle; increasing bitterness develops, after the swallow, with the predominate aspect being tangerine

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice hoppy wheat beer but it is not in the same echelon as the Modern Times offering or Gumballhead, for that matter

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.

On tap at Boise location. Nice variation on the IPA. IPA with some weizen backbone and smoothness. This one was a real winner, my favorite of the lot.

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.

Cloudy amber colored ale with a tall puffy white colored head.

Smells sweet and malt with an earthy aroma. Scent of cedar wood plank. Mild perfume of flowers.

Starts out mildly sweet with a moderate level of bitterness. Tastes a little floral with some grapefruit rind.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall less than I expected.

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.

All 4's

A: Poured a partially cloudy yet glowing light golden color, good carbonation yielding a nice fluffy white cap with great head retention. The lacing was spotty but plenty of bubbles.

S-: A small measure of what smothered in citrus and tropical fruits. Very nice and appealing nose.

T: Nice tropical fruits upfront which really carries throughout the beer. The wheat base is noticed underneath the hops. A little bit of sweetness mid palate. The finish is rather refreshing, not really bitter, just a shovel full of tropical fruits

M: Medium body, well carbonated, the feel is nice and full due to the wheat and the taste of the beer is nice. A little sweet but pretty dry as well

O: Very nice and easy to drink. I really enjoyed what the wheat brought to the table on this IPA and choice of hops were superb.

22oz bottle from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $3.99 Pours a slightly hazed pale orange with a nice frothy and thick white head..that stays a while. Fine aromas of mainly fruity,juicy citric hop very fresh and very inviting. Taste is similar to aroma but has more malt sweetness and nice bitter long lasting after taste. Palate is thinnish and i think this intended for this August period in Oregon. A nice drinkable Summer IPA
