Wild Onion Misfit

Another day, another beer. I’ve been seeing a lot more beers from Wild Onion and they’re usually in the mix-a-six section, which tends to mean that it’s not very popular. Hopefully, I’m pleasantly surprised.


ABV: 6.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A velvety, chewy IPA with the perfect blend of hop bitterness, aroma, and malt body. Centennial and Citra hops give Misfit a pleasantly bitter kick, along with a hint of citrus.”

Random: The can art on this is very unique and inviting. The only thing that I’m not a fan of, is the fact that there seems to be no theme from beer to beer with the brewery.

This beer poured with a half a finger of cream color head that dissipated quickly. It left no lacing on the glass. It did leave a crown on top of the body. The body was very cloudy and was a dark orange with no visible carbonation. The nose had some bright citrus zest and tangerine flesh. It quickly went into sweet, cereal malt. The taste started with a juicy citrus note, again tangerine, but also mango. Grapefruit and pine came through too with some fresh squeezed orange juice. The malt that came through next was more cereal-like than caramel, but gave the beer some balance. It had a medium thick body with high carbonation. The finish was quick with the same citrus. A can of this was $1.50, which came to $.12 per ounce. I expected this beer to be lacking in flavor, given the other beers I’ve had from the brewery, but this was a pleasant surprise.
