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.

cmonster (962) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Bomber poured into a tulip. This one says 7.8% ABV and 70 IBUs. Hazy dark-orange in color. Two finger whitish head that leaves sticky lacing. Citrus, pine, and wheat are present on the nose. Sweet caramel malty flavor, medium body, and creamy mouthfeel. Sticky, bitter finish. Nicely done.

Awesome nose, lemon, grapefruit, mango. Flavour doesn’t live up to the nose, bitter with a poor ending of metalic flavour.

ross (2073) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Bottle from my friend in Oregon. Rob got this one for me a few months back, so I was hoping it would still be fresh. Fortunately for me, it was. Pouts out an orange color with a thick off white head on it. Smell is a ton of hops. That is it. Nothing else to be noted here. All aspects of hops are all that comes through. Taste is likewise as hoppy. Incredibly bitter, yet somehow easy to drink. Fruity and has a quality of a white beer, sort of. Pretty good, but I was kinda expecting better.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Bomber courtesy of writerljberg – thanks Luke! Pours hazy amber with a 2 finger foamy off-white head that results in spotty lacing. The nose is caramel, ripe citrus and pine. The taste is caramel, tangerine, tart grapefruit and pine. Not really getting any wheat out of it, but it’s nice and hoppy which is alright by me. Medium bodied. Good stuff. Thanks again Luke!

BeerandBlues2 (9356) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear orange with an average, rocky, white head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (cereal, grain), heavy hop (flowers, citrus, pine), average yeast (sweat) with notes of pineapple, pear, and peach. Medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2009
bottle at Fort Wayne tasting - Pours lightly hazy gold with a small off-white head. It has a big citrus hop aroma with a little malt in the background. The flavor is massive citrus hops, especially grapefruit, and of course as expected for the style it’s very bitter. The wheat malt is definitely there though and makes for an interesting combination. It all works pretty well.

My least favorite of the 4 so far. Didn’t enjoy the hop or malt profile quite as much as the others. More of a citrus approach as compared to the 3.

Amber in color with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is of citrus, pine and grass. Taste is hoppy with some grapefruit, leaves, earth and pine.
