10 Barrel Brewing Company OG Wheat IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is 10 Barrel Brewing Company OG Wheat IPA. I picked this bottle up at Broken Top Bottle Shop (here) in Bend, OR.
From the 10 Barrel Brewing Company website: “Usually Wheat beers and IPAs are on the opposite sides of the spectrum but we beg to differ…time for old school to meet new school!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with a large white head and soapy lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, tropical fruit, banana, caramel and wheat.
Taste: Tropical fruit (pineapple, mango) and citrus (orange, grapefruit) hop bitterness up front balanced well with caramel malt and wheat.
Overall: A nice Wheat/IPA hybrid, 10 Barrel Brewing Company OG Wheat IPA is refreshing and very drinkable. This 6.5% ABV offering has great aroma and taste due to great hop and malt balance. I highly recommend this one!
