COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have made a hybrid for you that looks like a wheat beer, tastes like an IPA. We’ve called it Hibernation.

On keg at the Craft Beer Rising event at the Drygate brewery. I think this should be under the style of Wheat Ale as it was an IPA with a high proportion of wheat in there. Anyway, it was a bit earthy on the nose but on the taste there was a lot more of the big citrus notes with that creamy and slightly sour/drying note underneath.

Eh I didn’t think this was particularly great - bottle - poured clear golden with a thin bubbly clean white head that didn’t last very long. I’m not sure why it was clear as it’s supposed to look like a wheat beer? Aroma of wheat, banana, peach and grass. Taste is strongly of grass with some tropical fruit hints. Light body, high carbonation.

Bottle at Woody’s in Kingston. Really good hit of hops dominates, hint of citrus over a wheat beer background. Interesting and really nice.

Bottle from red elephant truro uk. Looks lovely, deep hazy yellow. Aroma of hops. Tastes good - citrus hops and a nice easy bitterness that lasts. Tasty beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well done. Cloudy and a little dry like a wheat beer but with the hops of an IPA. Very citrusy and bitter - grapefruit mostly.

2014-06-28. Hazy orange body with a nice white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is lightly yeasty, mild lemon peel and citrus seed. Flavour is pleasantly hoppy up front, nice citrus, bit of a minerally quality to it. Lingering citrus seed in the finish and aftertaste. Average bodied palate, bright carbonation.3+ Quite nice. On tap at Inn Deep, Glasgow

On tap at Westow House, 06/2014. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Sweet, candy aroma. Medium body, mild carbonation. Odd, slightly meaty taste initially. There’s lemon, a hint of orange, a light woody bitterness and a metallic tang to the finish that sticks around. Not great.
