A - Dirty golden, somewhat clear but a little cloudy, a small 1/4 inch head that lingers

T - Smooth with enough of hop tingle for IPA fans

M- Creamy and light

Overall: A fantastic off shoot of the traditional IPA. Two thumbs up.

A: Clear when poured from the tap (despite other reports if haze). Medium light carbonation. Little to no head. Light straw color.

S: Fruity. Orange and may be strawberry. Wheat and white flour.

T: Light with citrus. Orange is a heavy player with grapefruit. Fair amount of bittering but nowhere near overpowering. Mild pine flavor from the hops.

M: Thin and very smooth. I would have taken this for more of a summer beer. Little green grass aftertaste from the hops. Refreshing. Was quenching with some spicy food but got a bit washed out in flavor department.

O: Very nice. Nothing too over the top. Just an easy going lighter ipa. I like the grapefruit and slightly sweet orange flavored hops as opposed to the dry hop varieties. Would be good on a warm summer afternoon.

Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, and pineapple aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great tropical aroma and some tasty flavors.

4.14/5  rDev +4%

A: Poured a partially cloudy yet glowing light golden color, good carbonation yielding a nice fluffy white cap with great head retention. The lacing was spotty but plenty of bubbles.

S-: A small measure of what smothered in citrus and tropical fruits. Very nice and appealing nose.

T: Nice tropical fruits upfront which really carries throughout the beer. The wheat base is noticed underneath the hops. A little bit of sweetness mid palate. The finish is rather refreshing, not really bitter, just a shovel full of tropical fruits

M: Medium body, well carbonated, the feel is nice and full due to the wheat and the taste of the beer is nice. A little sweet but pretty dry as well

O: Very nice and easy to drink. I really enjoyed what the wheat brought to the table on this IPA and choice of hops were superb.

Pretty happy with this one. The fact that you can find solid craft beers such as this at a 7-11 is definitely a nod to craft brewing in Oregon.

A - Cloudy golden color, nice wheat like appearance with a little more golden color coming from the IPA side. The head is small and white and diminishes quickly. I would like to see a little more, particularity since they are calling this a wheat beer.

S- Love this aspect. Really nice fruity aroma. Great bouquet of tropical fruits, pineapple, peaches, maybe a hint of banana.

T - Really solid. I get much more IPA than wheat, but that's great by me. A nice, sweet, and fruity IPA, just the way I like them.

M - Not a super important one for me for an IPA. A little body. Not too thin which is all that's important. A nice hop bite on the back end.

I'm a fan of everything on this one except for the name. I really don't see how making a hybrid of two styles is considered O.G. or Original Gangster. It is a new hybrid style, which is great! But don't call it what it's not. Also, is Wheat really an original NW style? My understanding is that it is just Widmer Bros who made that one huge. Or are they big enough that their beer defined a region...?

22oz bottle from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $3.99 Pours a slightly hazed pale orange with a nice frothy and thick white head..that stays a while. Fine aromas of mainly fruity,juicy citric hop very fresh and very inviting. Taste is similar to aroma but has more malt sweetness and nice bitter long lasting after taste. Palate is thinnish and i think this intended for this August period in Oregon. A nice drinkable Summer IPA
