Wow!! While playing in Anchorage I had the opportunity to quench my thirst with a Hop Dog...I first tried it on Tap at the Brewery. Then a couple days later I grabbed a few more bottles. A couple thoughts. First, I love the art work on the label. MS always seems to find new ideas to present it's product. Nice work, and by a local artist!!! On to the beer.

Very Drinkable. Still even with the High IBU's the wheat seems to mellow the hop bitterness normally found in DIPA. The mid range ABV of 8% makes for little if any alcohol dominance, and allows for more than one glass. I found it very very drinkable. Perfect with a Grilled Salmon Cesaer Salad!!

Nice Presentation. Nice lacing on glass left after a drink. Carbonation was ave. Color was nice gold with murky wheat characteristics.

As I raised to drink nice, almost fruity flavor mixed with strong hop smell.

I enjoyed this beer mucho!! I would have to say one of my fav for the season, but I am a big IPA so there you go...
