DetailsCatch the wave of a new hop variety by making a splash with this hybrid wheat and pale ale beer showcasing unique Waimea hops. Flavors of fresh citrus swell up against the soft, bready malt backbone and then crash with notes of pine and a firm bitterness as this smooth sipper washes across your palate. Its light amber color is reminiscent of a spectacular sunset perched over an endless horizon of breaking surf, and capped off with a dense and lasting froth as endless as the waves themselves.

4.5 / 5.02 ReviewsExpect more towards the pale aleI initially was a little disappointed with my first few pours as I expected more of the wheat than the pale ale. Now that I have come back to post a review and I read the description, I think it is pretty spot on. Expect more towards the pale ale end of the spectrum with the dry hopping adding the hoppiness and aroma you would expect. It finishes a little bitter but pretty clean. I thought it would be a little more 'drinkable' for the summer months. I like it, but I think the dry hopping pushed it beyond the flavor profile my wife likes to drink... more for me.June 13, 2017Purchased
1 year agoYour basic delicious pale aleWas a little hesitant to try on the basis of just one review and a hop I was unfamiliar with, but I'm glad I did! Another great Midwest variation on the American Pale Ale theme. Used dry yeast, followed instructions to a T, 2 weeks in my Catalyst fermenter (draining the yeast after 1 and dry hopping through the airlock hole - a cinch), then 2 weeks in the bottle. It's going fast!January 12, 2018Purchased
