Personally, I find the combination of citrus hops and roasted barley unworkable.

Yeah, that's a wierd one. Take out the wheat and I'd say you have a red with a somewhat non-traditional hop selection. But with the wheat, I dunno, I guess that's why it's in the specialty category. If you're intregued, give it a shot and let us know.
