Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with plenty of carbonation. About 1.5" of eggshell white head forms, which has awesome retention and lacing. Looks like a very well crafted beer.

Smell: I get a whiff of malts up front, a bit of caramel with the rest being rather faint, which explains the wheat presence. Tons of citrusy hops make up the remainder of the smell. Lots of mango and pineapple.

Taste: Good caramel backbone up front. Not getting a whole lot of wheat in the malt flavor. Maybe just a touch of dryness on the finish. Lots of grapefruit, orange peel, and mango make up the hop character. A bit of hoppiness on the finish.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light with a perfect amount of carbonation. Nice and dry on the finish. Overall, really was a fan of this beer. It's the first offering I've had from 10 Barrel, and I was impressed. Nice balance and great hop character.

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.
