Default Sierra Nevada Wheat Beer

So I've been trying to find a new microbrew to explore. I've been stuck on Magic Hat for a long time, although I have strayed numerous times from the Hat, I seem to come back. I remember liking Sierra's pale ale, so I decided to get their wheat beer. Damn this is tasty. But, I don't see how it is a wheat. It almost tastes like an IPA to me. Lots of hops for sure, very little wheat taste. I like the beer dont get me wrong, one of my new favorites, but I dont think its a wheat. What do you guys think of it? Since wheats have been my new thing as of late, drinking and brewing, does anyone know of the ingredients/recipe for a clone?

If this is close to the original, your observation about it not being a wheat beer is close to the truth. Let me know how it turns out:

I'm not what you would call a "hop head". I tried one of their Pale Ales last week and it about made my hair stand up. VERY hoppy, but actually not too bad.

I need to give some of their other stuff a try.

i'm surprised you cannot get the kellerweis down on the east coast, we have it up here in the panhandle and it's damn good.

It's here, but it's nothing to write home about. A good solid hefe, with all the banana you're looking for. Overall, didn't knock my socks off, but it didn't make me spit it out either. If I feel the need for yeast farts I'll pick some up

It's probably the local distributor here at the Space Coast. I'm sure if I go to Orlando I can find it. Since they started carrying some, all local bars have SNAP, Longhammer IPA and a handfull of others... all of a sudden. I know that most beer places here buy from outside

My local stores have an abundance of Kellerweiss, Summerfest and SNPA. I haven't been able to find any Torpedo for almost 2 months!! Kellerweiss is tasty though, esp if you like a bavarian style hefe. I enjoyed my sixxer but I likely wont get it again. SN can't brew a bad beer as far as I'm concerned...

The Kellerweiss might be my new favorite. I love this stuff.

I can't stand anything put out by Sierra Nevada. Every beer they make just tastes like someone added 4x the proper amount of hops.

It doesn't help that I don't care for most pale ale's to start with.

and hoppy beer is SA's claim to fame.
