Weyerbacher Brewing Daywrecker APA

Happy Sunday Funday ya’ll! After an embarrassing showing, somehow UCF pulled out the win over Memphis 31-30. Other than that, it was a busy weekend of pre-fishing, errands and wrapping up honey-do lists before I leave for my bachelor party. In the spirit of debauchery, we paid a visit to the old college liquor store which has a great selection of craft beer and I picked up the Daywrecker. I figured I’m a glutton for punishment, so why not?20181014_185202

Appearance: This beer came in a tall boy and poured a hazy orange/amber with minimal head. At 10% ABV, I figured there wouldn’t be much.

Smell: Right off the bat, you’re hammered with tangerine and orange hops. It’s surprisingly light and bright on the nose considering it is a monstrous American Pale Ale with a crazy high ABV.

Taste: Man, I can see why this is called the Daywrecker. It packs a ton of flavor with malty sweetness, earthy and citrusy hops, and is sublimely balanced. The hops fade at first then come back with a vengeance on the aftertaste. Daywrecker leaves you with a taste like you bit into a grapefruit, but in the best way possible.

Mouthfeel: Did I say it was smooth? Everything about this beer belies its firepower. I could sit by a pool and down three of these no problem. The hops help leave your mouth crisp and clean after each sip.

Value: $4 for a pint wasn’t terrible, especially considering the flavor.

Overall: Daywrecker not only will wreck your day, but it wrecks the competition. This has a ton of flavor, is easy to drink, easy on the wallet, and is well balanced. I give this a 9/10. I couldn’t tell you what it is missing, but there is just a little something that keeps it from being perfect. If you can find one, grab one; they’re worth it. Next weekend I hope to have a tuna report from my fishing trip!

Until next time, tight lines and cheers!

    • Yeah I’m with you. They call it an “Extra” American Pale Ale. I’ve never heard of that before. It was a great beer, regardless of what you want to call it.
