3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at hills alongside deschutes version.
Pours a golden raisin ale with a little head and some spot lace. Near good clarity. Smells more like a wit than the deschutes version and has tones of yeast and coriander. Some banana smell. Taste is bitter without much other hop character. More like a bitter witbier than a new style. Mouthfeel is about right with a semi dry finish. Overall, not getting much ipa per se, but bitter wit.
Serving type: on-tap

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 750 ml bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy deep gold with a rocky, well sustained white head. Belgian yeast esters dominate the nose. Heavy yeast influence continues in the flavor. Lots of bubblegum. There is a light hint of citrus and hop bitterness, but it could use much more for balance. A bit out of kilter in my opinion.

A nice big bodied ipa. Crisp and refreshing. The palate is smooth and the hop levels are strong but not overpowering.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy witbier-ish appearance, with nice head and lace. Spritzy, effervescent carbo. Flavor is dominated by sage and citrus which melds really nicely with the wheat heavy malt bill. Super refreshing and complex. If white IPAs are here to stay, this is the beer to emulate.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle via Bret. Pours a clear golden with big white belgian esque head. Aroma is banana, clove and overpowering bubblegum. Taste is slghtly hopped at the front but then quickly dies and leaves you with Bazooka joe bubblegum. The bubblegum lasts for about 3 seconds and then goes away, like the flavor in that gum. I get very little IPA from this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasting in Missouri Thanksgiving ’13.
Nice hazy light color pour with a big head. Aroma is what I would expect of a wit, but has some resinous citrus from the IPA side. Flavor is interesting, enough hoppiness to get past the bubble gum esther that doesn’t really float my boat. Finishes dry with light sweetness. Very interesting.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear gold with a white head. Taste cross between a Belgian Wit and a IPA, coriander, lemon. I thought this was not good. I wouldn't drink this again.
