If you’re looking for an ordinary wheat beer, you’re barking up the wrong tree. Designed to take the edge off the hot dog days of summer, Hop Dog Double Wheat IPA offers both quenching wheat character and a big hop bite. After a long winter, it’s time to take the party outside. Hop Dog Double Wheat IPA compliments quintessential summer fare: grilled fish, chicken, pork, shrimp and veggies. And try pairing it with desserts that feature citrus--like, key lime pie or lemon curd cheesecake. This beer works with all that is summer. Hop Dog Double Wheat IPA packs a punch that won’t stray, which means you need to find a sweet spot and stay. Sure…you may feel like chasing tail and howling at the moon but keep your cool. Find some shade, dog. And just relax. Unleash Summer.

Gold pour with decent white head. Wet grain and hop on the nose. Flavor is happy with some dried apricot notes. Alcohol burn on the end.

Ernest (6836) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic, lightly astringent. Pretty simple and uneventful. Typical resin-grapefruit hop bomb in the nose. Typical brutish DIPA flavor balance. Ok but not that interesting.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Rosser. Hazy straw colour, thick white head. Pleasant sweet orange and pine hop character, with a surprisingly chewy malty body, bitter finish. Rosser wasn’t that impressed, but Parksy and I really enjoyed it.

Draft pour at the Seattle Taphouse. Rating from notes. Pours a clear shiny golden color with a fading foam head. I love the hop pun beer names by the way. I hope this is a trend that sees no end any time soon. I have a few ideas for some myself. Very wheat winish flavor. Grainy finish. Sweet, citrus, and flavorful. Good beer here.

Duchammer (124) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow orange with a white head. Beer was a little to carbonated. Aroma had nice mixture of citrus and pine with undertones of wheat. Taste was bitter earthy floral and citrusy pine with light malt sweetness. Refreshing

pictoman (812) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
Poured from 1pint 6fl oz bottle. Golden orange with white head. Subtle balance between the sweet and bitter, a very mild funk sits in the background. A little citrus, a little pine, a little malt.

definitely more double ipa than wheat beer, and suffers in comparison (and price) to the brooklyn-schneider hopfenweisse. For $10, this ended up a pretty average beer. Some of that may be due to it being bottled in August, but the next beer we had from them was a belgian ipa bottled in may - and it seemed fresher. this one had some bitter hops in it, but they were not floral, or very aromatic. some citrus and wheat came through in the flavor. even if i see a fresh one, i’ll pass on this in the future."

Bottle from Whole Foods, Lynnwood
cloudy deep blond color with generous compact head. Piney and pungent hopping, with lean and elegant pale malt backbone, plenty of fruits and hop resins.
Perfect IIPA, fresh, easy to drink.

ACHops (989) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2014
On tap @ Uber. Pours slightly cloudy golden orange with medium white lacy head. Aroma is sweet pale malt with big citrusy and floral hops on the back. Taste is sizable rich grainy wheat malt, with big bitter hop-driven finish that lingers bitter. Notes of citrus and fruity floral hops standout. For some reason I’ve recently become a big fan of wheat IPAs, and this is an outstanding example. Very drinkable beer in spite of the substantial abv.

Slight haze, big fruity aroma, orange. The body is big, thick, lots of bright orangey hop but also a lot of malt as well. Bit sticky but I like it.
