This unique surprise cross-pollinates the classic American wheat beer with an American Pale Ale. What grows next is a fruitfully unfiltered union with a delightful hop aroma, a pleasant citrus hop flavor, and a beautifully balanced finish that leaves other ales hoppy green with springtime envy.

Label says Encore IPA & its red with a dude lighting a lighter for a band, nothing like the one pictured here. Says nothing about wheat on the label either,, just here in the site discriptor does it say that. No smell of wheat in this stuff. Smells like IPA. Looks somewhat like a hefe tho. Some initiial citrus bite in there. Definately IPA fer sure, no mistaken it. After each slug is this hoppy medicinal feel to it. Somewhat oily on the palate but not quite as much as a real IPA. Hey, there’s gunk on the bottom of the bottle, I guess that’s where the wheat comes in. Never appraoches IIPA territory but certainly IPA in form and finesse. Decent CO2 but could use more. Bitter finish. I guess I have had some wheat ales that come across nearly as bitter such as Southern Tier Hop Sun, Arcadia Whitsun & Dundee Summer Wheat.

AirForceHops (4512) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2011
labeled as "Encore IPA" in Winter land sampler pack. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. A very nice sheet of lacing. Grapefruit hop aroma. zesty from the wheat with notes of baking soda. Flavor is BIG on cascade hops. Lighter body with high carbonation. Dry finish that does have bitterness but not real bad on my palate. The wheat helps knock down the bitterness. Well done!

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottled under the name Encore, for a variety pack from the grocery store. Pours a cloudy maize capped with a frothy white head. Resiny hops leap from the glass, and grapefruit and oranges lend a very west coast profile to this east coast brew. Medium mouth-feel delivers an ample malt backing of light cereal grain that is quickly superseded by aggressive hop bitters. Slight sweetness floats on the top throughout.

Encore: Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is bready, apricot. NIce, oily mouthfeel. Taste is apricot, mix of citrus (orange, lemon) with a subtle bitterness at the end. This is a little mild for an IPA but I really like it. Very drinkable.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle. Nice hoppy aroma with some citrus and herbal notes. Fairly bitter, medium bodied. Hoppy finish, a bit harsh on the palate.

mackus2 (156) - Edison, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy orange gold with a nice kind of fizzy off-white head. Pine and citrus aromas, some wheat and yeasty rotten fruit. Taste has a tart stank and some nice fruit notes with a wheaty mouthfeel, medium body and a little sticky caramel. A nice twist on an IPA but it really does feel more like a Spring brew than a Winter one.
