American Pale Wheat Ale |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Contact High is our summer seasonal inspired by the American craft movement. We made this wheat ale exciting by adding pacific northwest hops and dry hopping with orange zest. Contact high pours a bright orange hue with a bit citrus aroma. Citrus zest + hops + wheat = summer.

Poured into a wine glass, golden hued with a wisp of tight white head. Smells of orange and flowers, a bit of malt sweetness. The taste is very floral up front with orange zest dominating the finish. Light and crisp, although, slightly under carbed. A nice summer beer for sure.

Thanks to KingHopHead who, after doing me a proxying favor, dropped a couple of cans in with my prize beer. My first, ah, contact with 4 Hands, 12 oz. can split with my wife.

Pour is a sun-deprived yellow. Nose shouts out "IPA" from somewhere in the rear of the crowd: strong orange zest & a heady dump of citrus, backdrop of lemon juice. Nice, but there's no wheat germ in evidence. Yet.

Contact High brings the high, hard wheat in the taste that was missing in the nose. Two-ply wheatiness & then the orange/citrus hits. The aftertaste isn't terribly pleasing to my palate, something about the handshake jars the taste buds. Clean & crisp. I guess the strong point would be you could have more than one while sitting at a picnic table.

Wheat + orange zest just didn't work well enough for me to break into even a mild lather. Decent.
