Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Deep rusted yellow, and slightly murky orange body, with a cloud appearance. Head is a good four fingers tall with about two fingers of retention and an off white color. Slightly soapy, with a creamy looking top.

Solid hop forward nose. Juicy fruit and spicy action on the hop angle. Hints faint tropical and some sweet grapefruit mixed in with some vanilla and woody like sweetness to match. Very nice, and simple.

Palate comes surprisingly different. Thick earth hop and woody bitterness. Very bitter finish with a hint of burning ash quality. Sweetness is hardly detected, letting the bitterness become dominant and bigger.

Overall not bad, but missing much of the chewy wheat depth I associate with that malt addition and the hop profile.

Poured from bottle purchased at Vendome in Fullerton into a beer goblet.

Appeared a light straw/yellow color. Very little head, I was expecting it to be thicker with the 50% wheat added to the malt bill.

Smells of very light citrus.

Mouthfeel is very light, very little body. Bitterness is sharp but fades fast.

Tastes like a sessionable IPA to me, not offensive, but not bold in anyway. Reminds me of the Nooner IPA from Sierra Nevada, although that one has a slightly thicker mouthfeel.

Overall an approachable lighter IPA for neophytes. Do not expect anything "wheaty" about this beer, but it is pretty good beer all things considered.
