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: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pour is a bright olden orange with a creamy white head. Nose has a fair bit of hops, citrusy and orange peel, like cream of wheat note behind. Taste has the same hop profile but a touch of a messy malt backbone. A bit spicy, assertive carbonation, medium body.
