With three feet of powder closing the roads, a brewery is not a bad place to get snowed in. Given the unanticipated hall pass of a snow day, our brewers decided to experiment. Hmm…what about this dark caramel roasted Midnight Wheat braced with a serious load of Styrian Goldings, Centennial and Cascade hops? Shovel it in. What a deliciously unexpected way to spend a SNOW DAY!

Wow! What a great way to start off Thanksgiving! This is a dark brownish red brew with an excpetion light pillowy perfect think foamy head that lasts forever. Color is clear and bright with no cloudiness. When you hold it up to the light you can see the reddish hue. The appearance is perfect. The flavor is crisp with a slight licorice hop finish. The flavor is balanced with both the hop additions and the malty tatse of a nice proter. Not sure it can get much better than this one at a perfect holiday celebration or on a cold winters night in front of the fire eating the best filet you can find.

Bottle: Poured into a shaker, it was black with two fingers of a frothy tan head and lacing. The aroma is roasted malts and pine needles. The flavor had some caramel malt to it. The taste was slightly bitter with a somewhat dry finish.

"12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a deep brown near black with good carbonation and a rocky light tan head. Aroma is a bright fresh hop scent. It has a medium body and smooth mouth feel. Flavor is very lightly roasted malt backed by nice hop spice and flavor that gives just a hint of citrus and a mild bitterness. In the after taste the hop flavor stands out and somehow it finishes with a faint sweetness. Overall I like it, the hops are very well balanced and lean on the side of flavor rather than bitterness. I was expecting more roasted flavor from a Black IPA but this is really good the way it is.

Aromas of piney hops and a kind of cola. Taste mostly from the malts: sweet bread, toffee, caramel. There is some pine in the finish.

Wow does midnight wheat know how to smooth a palate out and give a light creamy feel to it! Great aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruit, roasted malts, light cocoa and a hint of chocolate... Same taste with an exceptionally smooth finish and bitterness. Complex yet simple, smooth and enjoyable.
