Extremely hoppy and refreshing, this unfiltered American wheat beer is brewed and dry hopped exclusively with Amarillo hops.

Draft at Bigelo’s. So impressed with what Excel is doing. This beer is on the sweet side. It could be an IPA but the wheat notes are interesting. Citrus flavors including grapefruit and more. Caramel and crackers. A bit of spice. Not sure this is a wheat ale but it is nice.

On tap at Shamrocks. Served a hazy golden color with a thick head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus and fresh grain. taste of citrus, a bit of malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness that lingers. Fairly light body and a grainy texture. Decent beer but missing a bit of bang.

On tap @ Bailey’s Range. White head to go with a hazy but bright golden pour. Fair amount of grass, pine, and lots of orange zest. A little bit of earthy hops. Some cracker malt, too. Flavor has a nice bitterness to it, mostly earth and grass. Plenty of orange peel and zest. Dry cracker malt and a bit of bread sweetness.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pour at the RBsG 2014 Schlafly Brunch (Maplewood, MO). Pours a deeper glowing copper pour, fiery glow with a bit of tannish ringed head atop. Mellow lacing, just faint haze in the body. Aromas are a bit sweet, gentle caramel and faint toast. Some earthy hops, gentle biscuit and florals. Initial is a bit nutty, lighter end of medium bodied with some toastiness, gentle orange and floral. A bit of toastiness, faint cocoa and dryness as we start to get past the middle. A bit toasty, dry, some nuttiness and carmelized meet that gentle floral and faint citric hop element. Finish a bit bitter, nutty. A touch sweet and sticky for me, the hop element helps you through it as it is solid enough to do some work. Ok. Pretty pour.

thegreenrooster (3174) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a decent pine hop. Flavor is also a pretty decent pine hop with a wheat malt in the backround. Someone in our group said this tastes like trees. Pretty solid hopped up wheat beer.

Samples from the tap at Bailey’s. Pours a near clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aron has light pine and grassy hops with a light wheat backbone. Flavor has same nice hop combination with a light wheat backing.

On tap @ Baileys. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a creamy white head. Nice softly floral, grapefruit, lemon zest aroma. The Amarillo hops come through nicely in the flavor though there is pretty high bitterness. Grapefruit, slight dankness, and tropical fruit. Low sweetness. Pretty good.
