This is the first of their new 2014 Variance series. Limited release. It's a 50-50 blend of wheat and barley malt. Single hopped with Cascade at 48 IBU. They call it a "white IPA".

Very light body, decent head. Aroma is mostly wheat bread and some cascade pine. Taste is very light but drinkable. It's smooth but kind of lite beerish.
