Welcome to a new segment we're going to try to complete weekly. In an amazing burst of creativity, we're calling it What We're Drinking, until we find something better. Anyway, every week, DCBeer staff members will tell you about the beer highlights they had from the previous week. Have a highlight from the last week? Let us know what it was via email@example.com, and you might just find your post in another new segment, which is aptly named What You're Drinking.

Multihead is a 4.8% single-hopped pale ale from Franklin's. It's light on the malt, but because it's unfilitered, it's not as thin and watery as some other American beers around that ABV. What really makes it stand out is the use of "wild" Neomexicanus hops, a strain found in New Mexico that is starting to generate some buzz (Sierra Nevada, Schlafly, and others are using these as well). Look for peach, tangerine, mango, and melon flavors, and a pronounced lack of bitterness thanks to copious dry-hopping. I drank this in ten minutes and promptly ordered another. You should, too.
