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.

yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
On tap at Toronado. It’s a hazy orange colored beer topped by a small, white head leaving curtains. The aroma is fruity, sweet and lightly grassy and spiced. Sweet flavor with some pale malts and fruityness. Some bitterness, but initially and in the end. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. Quite bitter finish actually. Not the most interesting beer of the day, but drinkable indeed. 130804

8/13/2011: Midnight Sun Hop Dog Double Wheat IPA... Aroma: Dried candied pineapple, hint of papaya, and tones of citrus. Appearance: Hazy, deep gold color with a frothy beige-colored head. Flavor: Chewy toffee maltiness; lots ofhops and then some more candied grapefruit peel, pineapple, fuzzy peach; smooth, creamy wheat; moderate bitterness level throughout; balanced bittersweet; the alcohol makes itself known, but enhanced the overall flavor. Palate: Medium-full in body; thick, mellow, and smooth; creamy flavor and texture. Overall: Drinks BIG (seems bitter than 8% ABV); This is a antastic beer!

Draught (pint; 8.0% ABV) at Tap House Gill in Seattle, WA. Rating #127 for this beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
In short: A somewhat sugary, somewhat boozy and very bitter-sharp blond ale. Just ok.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed approximately one month after purchase, a bottle brought to me by my man Jay.
The look: Slightly cloudy orange-golden body topped by a medium white head.
In long: Nose is sharp, white grapefruits, pineapples, some grass. Taste is even sharper. A crisp crackery malt backbone (it feels wheat but less wheat than with most so-called White IPAs), some residual sugars and then a truckload of high alpha-acid hops. Bitter white grapefruits, lemons and such. Alcohol is too apparent for an 8% brew and adds a bite to the already very sharp bitter finish. I really dig wheat-IPAs, I usually overrate this bastard style, but this one lacked the true wheat ale feeling, was too boozy, not refreshing enough, aggressive. Overall it was just ok. Not saying a beer like this cannot be enjoyed, I like a Sweet IPAs as much as the next guy, I really do, but I don’t like the next guy, this dude has a serious attitude problem, I don’t like sweet IPAs.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Whole Foods-Bowery, 12/30/12, IIPA Rating #150

Aroma: The nose has pineapple, orange, and grapefruit mostly, with some underlying malty notes
Appearance: A slightly hazy orange colored beer with a small, frothy white head that leaves light lace
Flavor: The taste is a little sweet, with lots of citric fruity flavors, and a medium-plus hop bitterness
Palate: Medium bodied, with a smooth, slightly sticky feel, soft carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty solid citrus-forward, almost acidic example of an IIPA. I didn’t really find much noticeable wheat here, mostly just the citric hops and light, underlying maltiness. Maybe you could say it’s a touch too one-dimensional, as those citrusy flavors really dominate the beer, but I still really enjoyed drinking it.

Very nice citrusy lemony wheat DIPA. Lightly tart with nice medium bitterness and very little sweetness. Great beer from a great brewery.

At diciccos it says it’s a summer beer but it doesn’t taste old. Tastes very wheaty, great bru
