Description 

Kick back and crank it up as we’ve done all the brewing…the we being us and the special guest appearances of two heavy hitters in the indie craft beer industry: New Mexico’s Marble and Colorado’s 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 stage…and then off the front of it, into the crowd!

After pouring, the beer is beauty to behold.  Bright orange/gold in color with a massive off-white head with great retention.  Aroma of pineapple, lemon-lime, and Saison like with pear notes and clove.  An initial caramel malt-forward flavor with a slightly grainy taste, then orange-grapefruit fills the palate while finishing semi-sweet reminding me of light honey.  A good beer with a very complex aroma, and a fair amount of malt flavors for a double IPA.
