Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: cosmicevan on 11-22-2010

Formerly 'Dirty Blonde', Dirty is an American Style wheat beer with a twist. We brew this beer with American ale yeast which keeps it light and refreshing. Dry hopping with Cascade and Centennial lends a strong grapefruit aroma and citrus flavor.

Pours golden yellow with not much to it in the appearance category. Not much of a head and when you see unfiltered on the label you expect it to be cloudy or merky but it looks like a Bud.

The smell is ok. It's kind of middle of the road with an avg amount of hop presence and a touch of grapefruit as well.

The taste is kind of refreshing but it leaves you wanting more hops and citrus bit. There really isn't much of an identity to this one. It is fairly smooth and easy to drink but it's not going to be a very memorable beer.

A: Golden with a bit of haze. Fluffy, big-bubbled, slightly rocky, white head. Not much for retention, but leaves a few splotches of lace.

S: Citrus hops – soft grapefruit & tangerine. Light crystal malt sweetness and some faint wheat. Not a huge variety going on, but very okay for strength.

T: Perhaps more pale ale than wheat. Solid malt backbone with pale perhaps just a step ahead of doughy, somewhat generic & clean wheat. Fair bit of bitterness with a Cascade & Centennial hop character of grapefruit and orange/tangerine. More fruit than rind. Underlying light malty sweetness enhances fruit perception. Not all that complex, but robust and tasty with loads of nice character.

M: Medium body with expansive & mouth-filling carbonation. Fairly quenching & refreshing. Good feel for its abv & style.

D: A nice hoppy pale wheat ale. A tad shy on the wheat part, but it makes up for it with the hops. Tasty and drinkable. A very stand up offering for the hotter summer months, but okay any time.

A-Clear yellow-orange, not much carbonation, two finger head that tries to leave behind some lacing, but can not.

S-Some citrus and grapefruit. Some grass and wheat as well.

T-Nice blend of wheat with citrus and grassy hops. Mild bitterness. However as it warms the beer starts to go downhill.

M-Light in body and highly carbonated.

O-A good beer but as it warms the flavors do not mesh as well, which is the main fault I have with this beer.
