What the brewers say

“A unique style featuring a strong hops finish on a silky body. A filtered pale wheat ale that is great for both IPA and wheat-beer fans.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fruity hops of orange, lemon, lemongrass, bergamot, mango, and tangerine, with the tangerine the dominant of the bunch. Resinous, spicy hops, with some woody notes, as well as some dank and cellar elements, hops candy, and a bit of honey with a light cinnamon bite. The malt is sweet with a bit of wheat character.”

Flavor: “Hops-dominated, resinous and sticky, with some woody and piney notes. Very lemony, with some spice and citrus, and the bitterness is not overwhelming. Bergamot and lemongrass, and moderate sweetness that slowly fades into a low-to-moderate bitterness. Honey, sweet bready malt, and raw wheat. It’s very dry, with an intensely bitter finish.”

Overall: “This was a great showcase for the late hops additions. The touch of cinnamon bite was nice, and it complemented the pine and woodiness well. The hops were incredibly interesting, intense, and fun.”
