Style | ABV
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!

a - Rust color with a 1 finger head. Nice lacing on glass. Cloudy.

b. Faint small of bitter citrus, grapefruit. Hoppy.

t. I like this blend of American Wheat Beer and IPA. The hops hits you up front and the grapefruit hits you in the finish. There is some alcohol in the finish, but not overwhelming. Bitter aftertaste - very hop bitter throughout - but not in a negative way. Could have used more wheat beer in the mix.

m. carbonation is very good.

o. This beer falls short of outstanding, but I would drink it again if it were offered up.
