COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jazz88 (2606) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Bottle. A medium golden color with a foamy white head. A citrus and floral hoppy aroma. Bitter, with a light apple and grassy flavor. Bitter and very dry, but the wheat cuts through it just enough to keep it within a reasonable balance.

marcus (7554) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 15, 2010
On tap at Monks Kettle. Pours golden with a large white head and a floral aroma. There is a massive wheat base that is more sweet than sour, and some serious hop bitterness. It works pretty well.

brokensail (13243) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy golden straw color with a nice finger high head that is white in color. S: Plenty of hops on the nose with grapefruit rinds and flesh along with quite a bit of pine. A few hints of tropical fruits, but they’re somewhat short lived. Underneath the hops, some slightly sweet malts and wheat. T: A really quite intense bitterness dominates the flavor of this beer on the front end. A bit of sweet wheat and malt in the intermediary with some more bitter grapefruit rind on the finish. M: Medium in both body and carbonation. D: A much better DIPA from Midnight Sun than Melt Down was. A nice bitter offering that I found pretty nice and easy to drink.

trevor211 (1421) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2010
On tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest 2010. Pours bright orange, with a great toasted-hop nose. Really quite hoppy, but very balanced. The wheat comes through really well. This was a really nice change of pace from the other hop bombs at the fest - a bit more complexity layered beneath the citrus and pine resin.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2010 Tasted on draft at City Beer. Pours cloudy orange with a thick white head that displays excellent retention. Nose is earthy hops with grapefruit, and a signature wheat aroma as well. Flavor is bitter up front with a solid malt backbone and some nice grapefruit peel bitterness on the back. Body is medium but kind of sticky with average carbonation and a long bitter finish.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Bottle thanks to someone. Pours with a hazy golden body and a white head. Aroma is hoppy, showcasing citrus, and mango. Also a nice grainy sweetness. The taste is grainy, wheat, and citrus. Nice hop profile. Well attenuated with lively carbonation.
Earlier Rating: 4/3/2009 Total Score: 3.9
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a small, white head and a hazy golden body. Aroma of marijuana, orange and caramel. Very strong hops. Taste is hoppy, dank and sticky with tons of citrus and a back bone of caramel. Light carbonation, and a bit thin.
