COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The short days and long nights bring this prowling cat out on the town, looking to scatch up some fun with a great beer. This Night Cat is dark in color, bold in hop but not heavy in body. It is full of tropical fruit notes from the Citra hops that combine with a nice dark wheat malt flavor.

12 oz. can bb 02/08/2017. Clear and deep copper, almost chestnut with a spongy half-inch of foam. Nose is resin, citrus hop and caramel. Tastes of sourish orange, caramel, bitter wheat flour, toasted pecan, dry grass and cocoa. Light-medium palate has a small astringency and a crisp hop note that gives the brew a pleasant and sessionable dry slant. In a style that typically makes me wonder "Why did I even bother?" this is a very nice surprise.

Pours a cloudy dark amber color with off-white/ivory colored head. Wheat, some citrus and pine, along with plenty of malty notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied and chewy. Finishes with biscuit and light citrus notes.

A great wheat beer. The hops make it more like an IPA. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

sawbuck (667) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Aroma of citrus, light pine hops, and some grapefruit. Brown color with a frothy tan head. Sweet up front. Rich sweet caramel, dunkel-like. Bitterness has layers. Piney at first then a hint of bitter chocolate, and goes back and forth on finish. Light mouth feel, wheat is rich and full. Interesting beer. Cross between a light Black IPA and a wheat beer.

ryecatcher (1376) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Amber pour, hoppy nose, hoppy mouth, some creamy wheat notes, hops overriding any chance of balance this thing had. Dont know why Im bothering to rate this as it (like most of what 2Bs do) is boring and uninspired.

Can. Poured a dark amber color, nice head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel and fresh grain. Taste of caramel, citrus, bit of fruit sweetness, and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth, quite creamy and nice easy feel. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

12 oz. can. Just fixed my grill on the last day of the holiday weekend, so this is what I have while finally grilling. Hoppy smell, of course, just some basic 3Cs with a hint of citrus. Almost a brown Ale color in the glass with a slightly raggedy sudsy head. Equal Nicodemus both hop and malt, with some caramel today coming out, leaving little room for any impression from the wheat. A little thick on the palate, which just means its more of an inside, summer dessert beer than a lawnmower beer.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a slightly hazy pale copperish orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells of of citrus zest and a bit of wheat with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, but less citrusy, and with some caramel. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied. Solid, but smells better than it tastes.
