ABV: 7.5% | IBUS: 64 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says:

“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.”
