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.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle: Poured a orange to dirty brown with a lacing two finger off white head. Aroma is somewhat unexpected fruit and hops. Taste is very weird with that hops bittering upfront yet a mellow veggie and malt finish. There’s a drying finish on the tongue.

alexanderj (3299) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle; poured a orange tinted gold color with a big frothy head. Aroma of wheat, Belgian yeast, earth, citrus and light notes of fruit. Very much like a Belgian IPA. Flavor was fairly bold. Alots of hopping and yeast/wheat notes. These fusion beers are not normally my style, yet this was well done. Alcohol was well hidden for the most part. Palate was ok.

Zymurgeist2 (961) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 18, 2011
On tap at Gourmet Haus. Loads of grass, citrus and manure on the aroma....places me in a summer meadow instantly. Beautiful hazy orange with white head and nice lacing. Taste is surprising smooth as the wheat makes itself known. Nice citrus and earth. Palate starts thin, medium is chewy and falls away quickly. Bitterness throughout. Citrus leaves it late. Late glass aroma is mostly citrus.

ChazMania (652) - Pasadena, California, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle purchased from Wally’s Wine in Westwood. This is a huge surprise and my first beer from this brewery. A great blend of amped up wheat with double ipa hops. Dark yellow color kinda cloudy. Taste is a huge double ipa hop citrus punch with the grain texture body of a bold wheat beer. All around excellent and very enjoyable beer. If this was regularly available I would buy it consistently.

Draft at Taps, Petaluma. Foggy deep gold with large fluffy white head and copious lacing. Bright, grassy, lemony aromas charge forward ahead of subtle wafery tones. Big, fresh, assertive hopping brings powerful, almost anesthetic, spices like wintergreen and rosemary, with a tender, pasty sweetness playing support. A skosh of hotness sullies a pleasing resinous finish. A capable challenger in the Sumpin’ Sumpin’ class.

tastybeer (1682) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle. Pour is a hazy gold with a massive white head, good lacing/retention. Aroma is wheat malt, citrus/floral hops, spicy yeast. Taste is soft wheat malt, big grapefruit/citrus hops, lemon, light booze. Palate is creamy, light-medium body, bitter finish. Kind of reminded me of 3F gumballhead taken to the next level.
Earlier Rating: 12/16/2009 Total Score: 3.3
Pours light orange with plenty of white head and lacing. Taste is bitter with an alcoholic bite. Bottle was old but this is the first wheat IPA I have tried.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden orange. Thin whit head with good lacing. Good wheat flavor and then a lot of hops! This is a great beer. If you a fan of wheat and IPAs you have got to try this one.
