Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Brad007 on 09-08-2010

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!

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy dirty straw colored body.
The aroma is mild grapefruit, not much else.
The taste is a nice pine bitterness that tapers off. Simple but good.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A fairly easy drinking IPA.

Pours amber color, slightly hazy, with a 2 finger width foamy head. Head retention is very good, as is lacing on the side of the glass. Has a malty, wheat odor with hints of pine and citrus (at the end). Taste of citric undertones with a slight bitter hop, ending in wheat undertones. Aftertaste is a little too soay. Not a bad beer, though. More on the lines of a strong American pale wheat ale.
