22nd October 2011
Very hazy amber beer. Big white head. Light palate, starts fluffy but turns crisp and dry. Seltzer mineral backdrop, vaguely bretty. Vibrant sherbetty fruits - an equal balance of orange, lemon, grapefruit, mango and peach. Dry minerally finish with bitterness kicking in. Lovely!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The beer pours a pale golden with a big white head on it.
S: The nose has a rather interesting blend of spices and hops. Some fruity pineapple and grapefruit hop notes along with a touch of grass. The traditional coriander and citrus peel are there along with a light bread and wheat aroma.
T: Lots of pineapple and grapefruit on the flavor. There is a somewhat light bread/wheat character with a mild hop bitterness. Light grass and citrus peel on the finish.
M: The body is medium with medium to high carbonation.
O: I really liked this one, lots of nice flavors and great execution of a concept I wasn’t too crazy about.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Batch 2011-2. Pours hazy, dirty light gold with a creamy/foamy 4 finger white head. It does a bit of ring lacing. Aromas of citrus, spice and a light resin. Full bodied. Flavors of orange zest/spice/herb-veg and resinous hop. This suddenly develops grassy/noble hop aspects. The zest smooths out. The spice moderates. It seems to become mostly hop. Gets a fruity sweetness, then back to hop and bitter. Seems complex to me. Excellent stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy blonde with a small head. Aroma is much lighter than the Deschutes version - light coriander, orange peel and light hops. Flavour is quite spicy, with light coriander and orange peel - spicy hops blended in but not individually recognizable. Doesn’t seem like an IPA at all. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, sage, lemon, coriander, earthiness and light grassinewss. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, lemon, sage, coriander and grassiness with a crisp dry bitter lingering spiced finish. More of a Hoppy Witbeer than an IPA in my opinion.
