COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve been making fun of wheat beers for a long time. Low hanging fruit, I guess, but we brewed one. Our packaging team was riding the topic pretty hard. They wanted to see an american wheat brewed with australian hops. And since they work their fingers to the nub and are a pretty rad group of chaps, we took the bait and slammed this brew in the tanks.

A ridable 5.5% abv will host some wheatey nuts & juicy Motueka hop bolts. The deliverer of this truth: Akari Shogun, He who harnesses light will usher this summer force into your life.

Akari Shogun American Wheat, coming to you soon, friends

hopscotch (9089) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Can... Pours clear and yellow with a small, fluffy, white head. Good retention. The nose is resiny and grainy, and accompanied by components of both tropical fruit rinds and soil. Medium-bodied with a lightly buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is a marriage of grains and spicy hops, and falls somewhere between medium and heavy bitterness. Finishes crisp, acrid, grassy and fairly dry. Can courtesy of BBB63!

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Tap at Churchkey for CBC. Pours a clear orange gold. Medium white head. Webby lacing. Nose is pretty different: moderate grated cheese, fresh orange juice, blood orange, spicy potpourri, dried orange peel, rose water, perfume medley. Taste is orange juice, grapefruit, very floral and dry perfumey without any chemical harshness. Moderate butteriness adds some needed body. Seems to work well.

On draught at Hopleaf. Hazed orange pour with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat and herbal hops, plus some tropical fruits. Light-bodied with a wheaty character and notes of grapefruit, hops and malt. The finish is fruity with a short wheat aftertaste. Above average overall.
