Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #45 (Oct 2010):

As the styles blur together, should we even worry about putting them in one? Pale amber with a mild haze, thick curtain of lace is draped on the glass. Bready aroma is heavily slathered with citric rind and pulp from the hops. Wheat malt scrapes the palate, while the sharpness of the hop bitterness stings; seriously hoppy with an unyield- ing character. Exotic fruitiness from the alcohol and perhaps even hops weigh in against the bready maltiness. "Why not!!"--that is what this beer screams at our taste buds. Its not like we expected any real balance at 100 IBUs, right? Only for serious hop junkies.

22 oz. bottle, snagged at The Hoppy Brewer in Gresham, OR a few weeks ago. Notching on the right side of the label is befuddling: strikes at both 'J'(uly) and 'A'(ugust), Week '4'. Poured to a pint glass.

A: Butterscotch-y golden hue, a fine fuzziness that enlarges and distorts fingers through glass. Not much carbonation, a few large ones percolate here and there. Not quite a finger's worth of sudsy white cream on top; sturdy coating

S: Huge aroma, citrus (orange!) almost explodes from the glass. Pithy scents and a healthy dash of dry spice. Sweeter and more 'tropical' with some warming and familiarization.

Cute-sy label, a grinning cartoon pooch wearing sunglasses, tongue lolling. A hop cone centered in the 'o' in 'Hop', a paw print in the 'o' in 'Dog'.

T: Like the aroma, lots of citrus in the mouth: zesty lemon and tangier grapefruit. Spiced bread, strong lemongrass and varied herbs. I guess a beer called 'Hop Dog' might be expected to err on the side of hoppiness, but ~wow~ this is more imbalance than I typically like. Flavorful certainly, but not quite equitable on the hop/malt scale.

M: On the smoother side, with less carbonation than may have been present a month or three ago. No loss of mouthfeel whatsoever where it really counts - lasting bitterness, medium weight (bordering on 'thick'), hints only of the hearty 8% weight. A thirst-quenching DIPA? Almost...

O: Tasty DIPA, hoppy bitterness has held up wonderfully, even 5 or so months since bottling. Likable for me, not quite lovable. Midnight Sun continues to do stellar stuff; an interesting twist on a strong IPA, thanks to a great big 'wheat' backbone. Nicely done.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Hazy golden yellow and orange with a hint of amber. Thin off-white head and thin lines of lace left down the glass.

Remarkably strong, pungent, and citrusy aroma: lots of orange, grapefruit, and a bit of a tropical note as well. There's also a bit of a sweet, juicy quality to it as well. Easily, the best part of this beer.

The citrus elements are far more subdued in the flavor than in the aroma, and what's left is a tremendously high level of bitterness. There's not a ton other than bitterness, frankly, except perhaps for a bit of wheat and a mild citrus element. Quite disappointing after what is a pretty astounding aroma.

Medium to thick bodied with ample carbonation. I couldn't drink a ton of this.

A remarkably aroma but little less, though still an above average DIPA.

22oz bottle served in a little hotel tumbler. Brought in a suitcase to Japan from Washington. Bottle code/date not found.

Pours hazy yellow with a slight amber hue. Little to no head, little clots of foam drifting about like icebergs. Small amount of fine, fast carbonation. Smell is hops, maybe old ones, some hay, some orange/citrus.

Taste is strongly bitter, does not have the stale hops flavor I was fearing. Definitely some of that orange/citrus. Heavy bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light, smooth, slightly slick, slightly flat. Overall, it’s not bad. I’ve had much worse beers. It’s better than the Asahi I had with dinner.

Pours hazy gold with a 1/2 finger off white head which recedes, leaving a thin disc of foam on top. The aroma has grapefruit, zest, tangerines, and pine. Smells like it will be very bitter.

The taste is exactly like the aroma suggests, and is very bitter. Grapefruit zest, grapefruit, tangerines, and pine. This beer is billed as a double wheat IPA, but where is the wheat? It has taken a back seat to the bitter hops.

Oily, resiny, and bitter. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not a bad beer, but too bitter to be one of my favorites.

Bomber shared by cbutova, mad props to him, finally trying some Midnight Sun. This was bottled in August.

Pours hazy orange, white head retains well as a ring and good cap, some lacing.

Slightly weak scent, some herbal and grapefruit, lots of malt.

Taste is much better, grapefruit, grassy and herbal hops, some citrus. Good hop flavor but bitterness is restrained big time thanks to the "double wheat", but it makes for a nice malty backbone - big wheat and caramel.

Good full mouthfeel, lots of malt but good flavors coming from both sides, no booze taste.

Good stuff overall, big malt backbone as expected but nice flavor, pretty easy drinking.

Immediately interested in this brew as I see its from Alaska and its IBU loaded to the gills. Decent price as well.

Appearance is light and bright. Not in the Wit type area but more in line with a soft pale ale. Plenty of racing carbonation.

at 100 IBU's I was expecting a sharp twang but it actually holds a drinkable level. Kind of like a dryer IPA with one fail swoop of sharpness then lays down for a fairly clean finish.

Notes: Most definitely pick this up. Its above average and as long as they keep the price reasonable its a no brainer.

I bought a bomber of Hop Dog at a beer store. $8.99. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a hazy yellow/orange color. It looks a bit like pineapple juice, but for the bubbles rising in the glass. A modest creamy head forms, but breaks down to a thin film quickly, leaving virtually nothing behind on the glass.

Smell is strong, and fruity for the most part. There is a smell of sweet bread and yeast, along with some lemon and orange peel fragrances, and a floral note somewhere between roses and pine.

Taste is a sweet bread flavor, with caramel and toffee, and then a dry, bitter citrus flavor like grapefruit, and a bitter note of dandelion leaves.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, slightly cloying, with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Not the most drinkable beer, or combination of styles. It's a bit like putting unsweetened grapefruit marmalade on a piece of whole wheat toast. The flavors just seem to clash somehow. I doubt I would drink this again.

Appearance: (4.0)
- Pours a mostly clear light glowing copper color. Nice thin finger of white foam which has slowly settled to a very creamy thin layer and sticky ring around the glass.

Smell: (3.5)
- Big zesty hops.. lots of lemon, citrus, grassy herbal aromas, and a light malt presence. Doesn't smell overly sweet, but does have a slight green aroma. Very light wheat and bready smell.

Taste: (3.5)
- Very solid taste here, and is very light on the malt sweetness. The wheat lends itself well with the hops. Super zesty lemon and citrus hops with a great grassy bitterness up front. It still just has a slight tartaric green taste though that is just a touch offsetting. But overall it is quite good. Grassy too!

Mouth Feel: (4.0)
- Medium bodied and well carbonated brew. The tartness and lemon-like qualities really make the mouth water while the hop bitterness really dries it out all at the same time.. and I do love a dry beer. I also like the lack of sugary sweetness as well. Slightly cloying, not overly chewy.

Overall: (3.5)
- Solid beer, and would certainly try it again. I am wondering if they are consistent from the bottle. A fresh keg in Alaska would probably be bliss of this beer, but as a 4 month old bottle.. it seems just a touch off. But it is in the brewers window of enjoyment and distribution. Just a little green. Perhaps that is due to the massive hops.

From notes. Clear, mildly active, fizzy white head fades fast. Color is an attractive golden/orange/amber.

Caramel malty sweetness with piny and citrusy hops. Some floral hops and boozy heat present as well.

Dry wheat malt character with a little bit of malty sweetness on top of a pervasive piny and citrusy hop bitterness and flavor. Fairly well balanced for what it is.

Plenty carbonated, almost rich medium-full body, dry bitter finish that lingers.

I'm guessing the brewery hit the mark they were aiming for with this one. It's crisp, dry character lends some quaffability to it, and there is on shortage of bittering hops included. But to my taste buds, however, more malty richness, body, and hop flavor would be an improvement. Hop heads should try it if they can.

A-Pours rusty orange with over an inch of fluffy white head. Leaves minimal soapy lacing.

S-Sweet malts, honey, rock candy sugar, sticky pine resin.

T/M-Lots of honey and piney hops. Not getting much of the wheat. Very sweet. Reminds me of an old bottle of 90 minute IPA. This one might be past its prime. Still, it has its charms. Brown sugar/pine combo is growing on me.

O-Not the best Midnight Sun beer. Worth trying once.

Poured into an IPA glass from a bomber. No date on bottle.

Color was gold with a slight haze and a thin white foam. Lacing was not bad for a wheat beer. Aroma had some tropical fruit and sweet grainy malt. Flavor was sweet grainy wheat on the palate followed by intense bitterness. Some citric hop flavors fight with the sweetness before giving way to a bitter, dry finish. Body is light to medium, carbonation is moderate to high.

Overall, this beer had both very sweet and very bitter characters. It's hard to imagine both extremes, but it has a strong sweetness at first followed by a bitterness that is borderline astringent.

Had this on tap in the loft this summer. 12 oz pour, split with the lady.pours orange/copper, somewhere between with a fanciful powdered wig atop. bursting with hop aromas, the wheat is immediately obvious as well, providing its unique profile. More citrus/orange/grapefruit, f'ing bitter. The sweetness of the wheat malt makes a good life partner for the hopping schedule here, it balances nicely, although it is nearly (perhaps is) over-the-top in the hopping. Still, I enjoyed this very much, so much so, I had to buy several bottles of it over the summer.
Good show, chaps.

Bomber, dated 4th week of August, poured to a Parra tulip. Huge thanks to DearthVader for both.

Hard pour yields a 2" white head that lasts forever. Lacing is pretty good. Very cloudy and hazy deep straw yellow/orange that looks a bit like cider.

Smell is excellent. Orange, berries, bitter, big sweet tropical and mango scents and slight pine and slight wheat scents but very full. Taste is similar but mostly orange and tropical flavors with full hop flavor bitterness and resinous hop flavors. Basically no wheat character in the taste though. Almost frothy mouthfeel it is so light and creamy but still has a good body but extremely bitter.

This has got to be my favorite hybrid style and most lean to one direction or another and this one is pretty much a straight DIPA. Exceptional beer, even when judged as a DIPA, I just would have liked more wheat flavor. Thank you for this want Brian.

This beer was interesting. It smelled similar to a Fantome. I'm not sure if it was because of all the wheat, the hopping or they may have even used a saison yeast. It was peachy, wheaty with a hop aroma similar to an herbal tea.

Taste is bold but the hops, alcohol and malt are all working together. I get the taste of that herbal tea. It's really has some belgian qualities to it. I would've like some more aggressive hopping. I really didn't know what to expect going into this beer. I was thinking it would be like an imperial Gumballhead. This beer just seems too balanced for what it is.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a large, fluffy off-white head, lacing throughout. Aroma is grainy, lemon, spicy, peppery, and citrus. Flavor is fairly sweet malts, orange, grapefruit, and pepper; very spicy. Mouthfeel is medium, lightly carbonated, oily, and very bitter. Good beer, I really like this one, wide variety of hop aroma and flavors.

Pours a crystal clear apple juice color, with ample head that dissapates but leaves a thin layer for a long while, ok lacing after a bit more time.

Smells immediately of wheat with some citric hops coming through the wheat. A weird smell, borderline metallic, but not too much so.

Taste is kind of similar, with a LOT of wheaty malt, but also a fair amount of bitterness from the hops. The wheat is really a treat to taste, and the metallic twinge I get in the middle is actually kind of pleasant. Citrus is there, but not in spades, and I can only get a vague lemony taste from it.

Body of the beer is heavier than expected, and it benefits the beer, as the flavors are quite strong. Carbonation is present throughout each gulp, and is gone before it can leave a tingle on the tongue post-swallow. Drinkability is really, really high, the 8% is not a factor in any way. Each sip is goes down so easy that I thought it was 5% until I checked the bottle. Overall this is one of the most refreshing beers I've ever had, and really does what it sets out to do.

Bottle date is Aug 2011

Appearance- Cloudy orange with a fluffy white head. 4/5

Smell- Muted grassy and citrus hop notes. Very nice. 4.5/5

Taste- A very pine forward hop flavor backed by a big bitterness. Lots of citrus as well. Wheat is a big flavor in the middle of the taste. Alcohol comes out in the end. One of the best parts about this beer is that it doesn't get any sweeter as it warms. In fact, It mellows a bit and if very refreshing. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel- Very good and not too thick like a lot of DIPAs can be. 4/5

Overall- I have wanted to try more wheat IPAs since I have had Lagunitas Lil" sumpin' sumpin'. This one does not disappoint. Very well done. Reminds me of a cross between HOTD Blue Dot and Lil Sumpin' Sumpin'. I will definitely keep an eye out for this next year. 4.5/5

22 fl oz bottle with a crazy looking dog on it, clearly feeling the summer heat. The label seems to indicate this was bottled the first week of July. Sometimes those notches are hard to read. Anyways, off with the cap. Poured into a goblet. Comes out a very hazy golden yellow with a substantial, think white head of about three fingers. Did I mention lots of haze--no seeing through this one. Head has some good retention, but looks like not as much lacing. We'll see. Sediment enters the glass after the final pour.

The nose on this beer screams double IPA. I'm not really picking up any of the traditional smells associated with a wheat beer. Lots of lip-puckering citrus scents. As things settle a bit, I can detect maybe some of the wheat characteristics, such as a banana and clove smell. Also there is some passion fruit and pineapple aromas.

I'm now ready for the 100 IBUs taste of a double wheat IPA. Hop dog!!! That is one serious smack in the mouth with a blast of hop flavor. Starts off with a little wheat beer taste that immediately shifts into overdrive and dumps a truck-load of hop flavor into the mouth. Finishes with a tangy citrus/pine goodness and a touch of alcohol heat. For those hop addicts out there, this one is for you. Lip smacking bitterness has taken over. Some tangerine flavor in there as well. For those looking for balance, look elsewhere. For those looking for a full-on hop assault, enter here. Ok, maybe a little wheat malt breadiness?

Mouthfeel is a little ruff ruff and granular, if that makes any sense. Or maybe it's the 8% barking. This is nicely carbonated and it wraps the mouth in a bitter stranglehold and won't let go. The wheat component of this brew keeps the body refreshing and crisp.

Overall, this unique creation works for me. All bite and no bark! May not be for everyone, but that's OK. I prefer the straight double/imperial IPAs, but this was definitely an interesting creation that pushes the envelope of beer styles and is enjoyable in its own right. After drinking this, you too might be looking like the crazy dog.

A: Pours a translucent golden with some light orange highlights, capped by two fingers of rocky, eggshell-colored head. Retention is good as it recedes slowly, leaving light lacing down the glass.

S: Light citrus and tropical fruits up front with a big sweet bread base. Some lemon zest and light graings lurk in the background, but the aroma is muted as a whole.

T: Citrus and tropical fruits up front - papaya, grapefruit, orange - followed by a wheat base with some lemon zest around the edges. A big sweet bready character sits in the background.

M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation.

D: A little heavy on the tongue and the sweet character is a bit too strong.

My first brew from Midnight Sun. Excited I am, yes.

Hop God pours an attractive golden-orange with a snow-white one finger head into a pint glass. Sparse carbonation bubs run slowly up through the beer's body. Small yeast specs are suspended throughout the beer. Lacing left on the glass is sticky and scrawlish.

The initial aroma out of the glass is pure pine and cannabis dankness. I can smell a little wheat mingling with the hops. Behind the dankness is a very bright citrus aroma; grapefruit and tangerine smells are abundant. Lots of biscuit and just a little caramel malt come through in the nose, as well. I really enjoy the bouquet of this beer.

The initial taste is a little sweeter than I thought it might be, with caramel malt and tangerine really bursting through. Maybe the wheat also contributes to the sweet! HOWEVA, after the beer goes down my gullet, that weedy and piney dankness emerges and leaves a great, fresh hop taste on my tongue and sides of my mouth. I like that.

The mouthfeel of the Hop Dog is the weakest aspect of the beer, in my opinion. Hop overbalances malt by so much that the feel is quite light, even bordering on thin. However, the bitter blast of hops at the end of the beer saves the day, and the lingering mouthfeel is very bitter, which I enjoy quite a bit.

Overall, this is a beer that I am a little torn on. I really love how dankly hoppy the finish is, but the initial sweetness is a bit much for me. I do like how the wheat contributes to the overall flavor, but would I like it more without? It's a highly interesting beer and I am really glad that I tried it. Good job, Midnight Sun, on creating a good, thought provoking beverage.

22 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy golden orange with a big head that receded quickly. Lots of lacing along the sides of the glass.

Smell: Strong wheat aroma with citrus hop aromas. Orange zest is distinct.

Taste: Citrus flavors quickly overtaken by a wheat and bready malt character. Finishes with a lingering hop bitterness that gives me a bit of earthiness and grassy flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. Hops give a fairly significant bitterness to the mouthfeel.

Overall: An interesting combination of styles that I enjoyed as a thirst quenching, but still flavorful and higher abv beer.

Medium haze golden hued whispy ale -ish head, about the appearance I would expect from something called a double wheat ipa.

Smell is all a candy dough confectioner's making. Some across the atlantic notions and vinousness are an afterthought.

Taste has the makings of a mediocre IPA but none of the "double wheat" notion presents itself to speak of. I always say expectations are premeditated resentment. I'm not resentful of the beer but i expected a twist of banana and clove esters with hops in some kind of twisted showdown freak show, and I wanted a ticket to that. Instead it's kind of a convoluted IPA that doesn't drink like an IPA should. The 100 IBUs are there i guess, but not wowing me and I haven't had an IPA in a month, so i figured my taste buds would explode. They did not.

Full ass bodied.

drinkability: This was a chore to finish. And by my estimation a double wheat IPA should not be such.

I'm a pretty darn big fan of Midnight Sun and will continue to be but this one won't be a repeater.

Bomber poured to La Fin Du Monde tulip.

Bottled the 4th week of August.

It Pours a fairly translucent copper with a huge off white head that leave THICK lacing all over the glass.

Smell is somewhat weak with slight citrus and grapefruit shining through.

Taste is of huge citrus bombs with an insanely bitter hopped finish. This thing is the most bitter beer I've ever had, but it's quite enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is fairly thin, with little carbonation. Very drinkable brew.

This was my first Midnight Sun offering and I wasn't let down, but also wasn't blown away. Maybe the weather has gotten slightly too cold out for this one.

A- Clear and light copper in color with a billowy white head that lasts, leaving good lacing.

N- Floral and herbal hops, melon, and a light kiss of alcohol

T- Sweet maltiness accented with spicy hops in the beginning. Hop fruitiness and a touch of alcohol in the middle. Dry herbal, resinous finish with grassy bitterness, spiciness, and light alcohol fumes in the aftertaste.

M- Medium-light body, moderate carbonation. Hop oils leave your mouth pleasantly sticky after each sip.

D- I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. The alcohol is present throughout, but it's light enough that it becomes an important part of the flavor profile.
