Weve now hit our second stop on our multi-year trip to explore through beer all that is New Jersey.

Exit 11. Its confluence of highways ensures that you can get there from here. So we chose a beer that celebrates a confluence of styles. We looked to Germany and its wheat beers, but then we used a classic English ale yeast. A trio of Pacific Northwest hops chime in to creates refreshing American wheat with a bit of a hop bite.

Exit 11 is brewed with 50 % Belgian pale malt and 50 % white wheat. Its hopped with Columbus, Palisade, and Amarillo hops. We then dry hop it with more than a pound per barrel of Amarillo hops for a bouquet reminiscent of tangerines and apricots. A perfect beer to enjoy when you get where youre going.

a citrus and grapefruit peel aroma and taste that leans towards being a full on wheat ipa without quite getting there.

Bottle from trade with jtclockwork, big thank you James. Orange golden color with thick white head. Nice citrus hoppy aroma with soapy notes. Taste, wheat, malt, followed by nice hoppy kick with tangerines, grapefruit, grapefruit zest. Long hoppy bitter finish. Good.

Bottle. Hazy dark gold with a thin white head. Aroma is honey and apple cider. Taste adds a hint of grassy hops. Surprisingly syrupy mouthfeel. Definitely a lot different than what I was expecting.

PhillyCraft (6964) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2013
On tap at P house in 2011. Poured hazy blonde with small to medium white head. Aromas of wheat, grass, floral hop, and pale malt. Flavor is tangerine, wheat, earth, and apple. Carbonation was average. Average wheat ale.

Bottle. This is a really well done wheat with all of the pieces coming together just right. Wish it was still around.

Very hoppy, a little bitter, yet finishes very well. Bubbly large head. Shame its a limited time.

Draft at the Pour House. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a one finger frothy white foam cap that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Streaks of lacing left behind. Floral hop aroma with some zesty spice, citrus rind and bready yeast. Hints of pepper, clove, banana and apple. Medium bodied but on the fuller end with a blast of dry, earthy hops up front that provides bitterness that lingers into a slight dry finish. Underneath the hops the wheat beer elements are there but theyre overpowered. Lots of bready yeast with only subtle spice and light fruit. Faint hints of pepper with a creamy mouthfeel along with some apple and banana. An interesting idea but too hoppy for my liking making it one dimensional.

Gabf. A touch hazy but quite clear, yellow appearance. Somewhat earthy hoppy, light lemon citrusy aroma. Fairly earthy, organic hoppy, citrusy, wheat malty flavor.

Pours hazy dirty blond with white head. Aroma was wheat, citrus, yeast and some florals. Tste was sweet with some sugary undertones and a tart like finish. Interesting.

On tap a UJs. Pours light golden blond with white head. Aroma of wheat, pine, citrus. Moderately bitter. Basically, the description is accurate, hoppy wheat beer. A bit lighter on the palate than an IPA.
