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!

Hazy light brown colored. A thin cap of foam covers the entire top of the beer. Aroma of citrus hops and pale wheat. The taste is a burst of citrus hops. I don't get much of the wheat as the fade is dominated by the hops. There's a bit of saltiness in the aftertaste. The feel is a bit warm and carbonated.

Pretty good wheat IPA offering from Magic Hat. It's not the best I've had, but I think the wheat IPA mix can be hard to pull off, and they do a pretty good job here. Nicer light flavor. You definitely get the citrus off the nose, I got more lemon than grapefruit I think, definitely pleasant. I kind of wish this was a summer offering, I think I might like it better that time of year, but it was still good.
