Good hop character and beautiful dark red body. Good malt balance also. Reminds me of a hopped up scotch ale

- Hoppy wheat ale. can. poured into a spiegelau ipa glass. Swirl before 05.05.15. Consumed 06.01.15.

A: Beautiful ruby coloring, clean clarity with a quick paced effervesce. 3+ finger, sudsy-foam tan head, leaves a high coverage rate of heavy foam bands on the vessel.

S: Aroma had hints of rootbeer and wet grapefruit. Light cola and sweetly toasted malt, sweet upfront, sweet hopping, but quickly fades off the nose with a short duration. Good while it lasted.

T: Flavor was freshly toasted malt and wet citrus. Dry malty-scotch, some fresh pine and alcohol, gently warming leaves with a bit of sticky pine and grapefruit resins. Raisiny-tropical notes with some caramel apple.

M: Light sticky malt mouthful, with some hop resins, light medium body as well carbonation factor. Scotchy malt.

O: Reminds me of a hoppy scotch ale. Darker, sweeter, then usual, a wheat bock ipa? Heavy raisiny malt presence, sticky hops and malt, good ibus with a unique take and twist.

This is an exceptional beer and I know my words will not do it justice so bear with me.

To keep it simple, it is basically a hippy porter but naming it that wouldn't give it justice. The balance of flavors is what makes this beer special. The smooth malted flavor and subtle sweetness from the wheat works perfectly with the hops. Finally, the beer finishes with citrus like tying a bow on the pint glass.

The night kitty pours a dark rich amber with off-white head that is leaving a nice lace. The citra hop gives a nice blend of citrus and pine on the nose and in the taste. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall.....very nice!
