This pours a semi-hazy color with some floaties and an frothy off-white head. The aroma is very citrusy for an IPA. The taste is light and very clean with lots of herbal and citrusy note. This is an intriguing brew from Deschutes with a very unique taste for the style that either be a hot or miss with the drinker.

This brew pours a cloudy orange which turns yellow when held up to the light with a one finger white head and light lacing.

The smell is musty and dank, wet straw, hay floral hops and sweet malts.

The taste mostly follows the nose with a wheat and malt taste dominating with a musty straw taste but surprising sweetness as well; light hop oil is left on the tongue after swallowing.

Overall this gets the style right with a sweet wheat beer coupled with just enough hops to keep it from being too sweet.
