3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a crystal clear straw color with a large white head. A spicy mostly Belgian yeast banana nose. A nice sweet flavor with lemon, banana, light yeast, more spices in the finish with lemon. Very easy. More of a wit beer than a IPA. Good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours an extremely light, pale yellow color that looks much like a cider or fresh lemonade with a frothy, bright white head that settles to a thin white film. Its powerful, yet light-bodied aroma is fresh and very plant-like, green, and almost lemony, with a definite Belgian yeast presence. I like it. Itís light and fresh in the mouth, with a tame yeast presence that doesnít make it unpleasant to drink, but is just present enough to compliment the lightness and wheatiness of the beer and the heavy citrus characteristics of its Cascade and Citra hops. The hops really do a wonderful job of decorating this beer - so much so that you almost canít tell that the flavors are even coming from the hops. Itís light, fresh, lemony, and yet satisfies hop cravings. White IPAs may just be my new favorite summer/lawnmower beers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very light golden color with average pure white head and lacing. Aroma is citrus and crisp. Taste is citrus - grapefruit, orange, lemon, banana. Not very strong or bitter, but that makes it refreshing and super drinkable. Some yeast coming through at the end, but mild enough that it didnít ruin the moment.

Hazy Straw pour with small head. Citrus nose with notes of yeast. Light watery body. Soft, flat carbonation. Sticky slightly bitter finish.
Inoffensive but more like a kolsch than an IPA

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy pale yellow, not much of a head. Spice and banana on the nose. Flavour follows nose, with a twist of cloves. Thin bodied, short finish, soft carbonation, easy drinking. No discernable hop bitterness. Why this is called an IPA is beyond me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle $7 per sixer. Bright yellow color, almost flourescent. Super white head. Smells hoppy, spicy, wit. Taste is a super hoppy wit. Not really a hoppy wheat like say Lagunitas Lil Sumpin Sumpin but truly a witbier with a ton of hops. The "White IPAí moniker is ridiculous but what do you expect from craft beer?
