COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kick back and crank it up as weve done all the brewingthe we being us and the special guest appearances of two heavy hitters in the indie craft beer industry: New Mexicos Marble and Colorados Odell. Credited with 58 years of brewing chops, our trio built their wheat ale foundation on the classic C hops. Then, we rocked a pure hop triad of M hops to achieve a supercharged succession of orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, spice and dankness. The undulating riffs of Motueka, Mosaic and Mandarina Bavaria hops slash through the wheat haze with equal footing, never playing over one another. The cacophony of flavor is what fans would expect with a name like Megawheat. So join us as we forge ahead on a path that directly leads to the main stageand then off the front of it, into the crowd! If you feel the urge to smash the bottle afterward, dont. Thats what guitars are for.

jgb9348 (6099) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Clear golden and peach-ish coloured body with a thinnish golden coloured head, about two centimetres tall. Aroma of alcohol, peaches, apricots, bright grain and toffee and a light dose of tropical fruit hoppiness. Medium-bodied; Strong sweet flavour at first with tropical fruits and grain along with a light hoppy and herbal note near the end along with alcohol and malt with a slight medicinal and astringent flavour. Aftertaste shows some depth with the fruit flavours from peach and apricots to tropical fruits and a light hoppy flavour with some herbs and a touch of alcohol near the end and a lot of warmth. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA with some smooth flavours, but a touch too astringent and deep with not enough complexity and robustness from the hops and malt. Decent to sample, but not worth searching out nor spending a lot of money on the large format bottle. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Beer Run in Charlottesville, Virginia on 26-February-2017 for US$9,49 sampled at my hotel room in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on 20-May-2017.

Strykzone (7252) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Bomber. Golden with a hint of amber hue. A big level white head. A complex hop aroma is kind of all over the place. Flavor is also hop centered. Wheat is kind of mixed with other malts and is not really noticed. This beer is about the hops. And they are good.

AWISLguy (2929) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2017
650ml bottle from the now defunct Malt Shoppe in Tosa, shared by all on poker night. Hazy orangey pour. Foamy off-white head. Hoppy. Sweet fruity. This is Double Gumballhead. The wheat is a player, but solid strong hops. Solid, tasty if 4 months old. ck1 says a bit of a disappointment. 14.2

Bomber. Pours a light orange amber with a thick white head. Aromas of caramel, hay, pine sap, apricot, and orange. Bready, syrupy sweet, a bit of warming alcohol, bitter hops, and fruit juices. Body is medium with medium carbonation. Bitter filmy finish.

J_man (993) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Aromas of cracker grain and citrus from a very slightly hazy medium yellow/orange body. Creamy wheat body and alcohol hit quickly followed by a nice honey sweetness. Juicy citrus bitterness with pineapple and orange flavors pop through. Body is full for such a light looking beer but also somehow watery. Finishes bitter and sweet with a lasting alcohol bite. Interesting DIPA.
