Notes / Commercial Description:
Exit 11 Hoppy American Wheat Ale is the second in their wildly popular Exit Series of Big Bottle Beers. Exit 11 is a confluence of styles and ingredients, just as Exit 11 is the point in New Jersey where the Garden State Parkway, the New Jersey Turnpike and several other highways come together.

“Exit 11 is the point on the Turnpike where the Garden State Parkway branches off and takes hundreds of thousands of travelers to the renowned Jersey Shore,” says Flying Fish Founder Gene Muller. “Our Exit 11 Wheat Ale is a fresh, citrus-y summer beer perfect for beachgoers and those who only wish they were headed ‘downa shore’.”

Exit 11 is an American-style wheat beer brewed with English ale yeast and three Pacific Northwest hops, Columbus, Palisade and Amarillo. It is brewed with 50% Belgian pale malt and 50% white wheat, and is an ideal summer thirst quencher, with its bouquet of tangerines and apricots. Exit 11 is available only during this one-time release, and only until it sells out across New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Pours a slightly cloudy, golden yellow color with a medium-sized white head of soapy foam that recedes quite rapidly leaving some sparse lacing.

Aromas begin with a semi-spicy, grassy, citrusy fruity hop profile with some dry wheat maltiness along with some subtle breadiness.

The tastes begin with some grassy, citrus and floral hops. As it warms you can appreciate the balancing bready malt flavors with a touch of sourness from the ample wheat malt additions.

The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is crisp, slightly bitter and overall quite freshing and clean.

Overall this is a super solid hoppy wheat beer from an emergingly solid NJ brewer. While some of their "regular" 6 and 4 pack offering are lackluster, these Exit series beers have been quite above average and well worth seeking out. This is flavorful and great for when you want a slight twist from your basic pale ale.
