Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
A genre-blending mix of an American wheat beer and a traditional India Pale Ale. Encore is hopped and dry-hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo hops, and has a pleasant grapefruit aroma that compliments its subtly sweet malty backbone. Grab a lighter and get up front!

Not my favorite! Liked #9 better and really liked Snow roller! Won't get again! Would rather have a bud light! Too bitter not really any other flavors to it but beer!

Clear Golden Pilsener color with a nice crunchy head and very nice lacing. Light grainy aroma with a faint hint of hops on the nose. Taste is malty, hoppy and slightly bitter with decent balance. This beer is everywhere but overall is pretty decent.

Pours hazed golden amber with a thin, fluffy lasting head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of citrus with wheat tang. Not quite robust, but strong enough and pleasant enough to be enjoyable.

The taste is of wheat tang, a touch of honey-like sweetness with a citric/herbal hop bitter finish.

It is on the fuller-side of light-bodied and lighter-side of medium-bodied border. Medium carbonation.

An enjoyable hoppy American Pale Wheat Ale! Hoppy enough to fit in IPA category as well.
