American IPA |  6.40% ABV

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!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A hazy yellow brown with a thick white frothy head that laces as you drink it.

Smell: Citrus fruit, grapefruit, mild hops.

Taste: Similar to smell, grapefruit and wheat up front, then hops at the end.

Mouthfeel: Mild carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall: An interesting beer, a mix between an IPA and a wheat beer. I am a fan of both. The beer hits a little bit of both. I enjoy the beer and would drink it again.
