COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark American Wheat beer with 40 pounds of Citra hops straight off the vines. An extremely smooth and drinkable ale with a huge nose of juicy fruit and grassy mango balanced by bready malt and coffee notes coming through in the flavor.

From the tap poured a dark brown color with a good amount of head. Toasted malty, bitter, hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

Dark brown with lasting foamy tan and lacy head; aroma is rich chocolaty and hints of hops spicy; Flava is roasty and slightly hopy; feels light and finishes dry and hoppy bitter

Dogfish evidentially decided to bring this back as a ’Brewpub Exclusive’ this past week. I was in Rehoboth on Monday, stopped in for lunch and sampled a pint of this dark pale/wheat ale. The beer poured a dark brown color with a very sticky and deep tan head. The nose was quite smoky, with notes of chocolate, crisp hops, caramel malt and yeast. The body was balanced nicely with spicy and bright hops, along with plenty of fruit, grass and chocolate. The beer left a smoky, but yet hoppy, lingering taste. Another nice combo of styles by DFH.

At brewpub. Pours a brown clolor with a nice half finger off white, light brown head. Aroma is clove, spice, fresh herbs, grassy hops, some nice caramel notes in there aswell. Taste is citrusy, grassy, fresh herbs, a little toasty caramel. Also; I get a ton of Citra in this one both in aroma and taste. A good brew!
