22oz bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Not much going on with this one, pretty bland really. A very slight spiciness and not all that much in the hop category. It’s drinkable but a bit disappointing.

22 oz bottle from Julio’s. Pours a hazy gold with a one finfer white head that recedes to a ring with spotty lace. Aroma is wheat, spice and pine resin, all though none are strong. Initially quite hoppy with secondary wheat and coriander. At times, hints of orange peel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle a buddy found at a random bottle shop in Haverhill, MA. The appearance is very much like a Belgian White brew. Smell is a bit odd. Zesty with over-hopped wheat aromas. Body is rather light and does help with drink ability. Flavor is coriander and orange peel dominate. Hops are barely noticeable to me. I really enjoy Belgian White beers, so for me this is not bad but not something I’m running out to find another bottle of.

my first backlash and first white ipa i think. Enjoyed in my wheatbeer glass. bit hazzy whitish yellow color. Aroma is tropical mango and coriander with little zest. Taste was wheat beer malt but some ipa bitter with stronger orange zest came in behind. I will give this style a few more tries to see how it is.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a finger of fizz that settles out. On the nose its pretty subtle with a touch of citrus and some earthy herbal malt. On the palate it brightens up with a touch of carbonation but a slight flatness... however the tiny bubbles plays well with a medium round bodied beer. I get some god yeasty spice on the front and then the flavors open into a more citrus laced finish with notes of orange peel, tangerine and grapefruit. Actually enjoyed this beer quite a bit.

Kinda all over the place. Not a bad brew, just unsure of what it’s supposed to be. Comes across as more of an over-hopped weissbier than an IPA. Lots of tropical fruit [mango?] and coriander [hallmarks of a weizen] are the most prevalent flavors til the grapefruit on the back end. Like I said, not a bad beer, just not sure what they were going for here. It’s like 2 different beers thrown together into one with an awesome label [5/5 for the label art]. If I see this one again I might grab it.

All I must have remembered from this beer is that it was so tedious I only wrote five words describing my overall expericne in my notebook: "wheat bread and hop pellets". That’s it. There sure was a lot of hype surrounding this beer, specifically from the salespeople themselves, but none of their arguments about how good it was were really all that convincing. Had served at Leary’s tasting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle from Julios. Pours out a hazy light lemon color. Thin white head and decent carbonation. Brite, spicy aromas. Flavor is more bready and bitter with not as much citrus, compared to the Harpoon White IPA I had yesterday. This one is not as well balanced.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet armpit and resin aromas. Medium bodies with sweet yeast and caramel upfront turning to watery grapefruit in the lasting finish.
