3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at a Colorado repís home keg, this pours hazy straw, with a thick soapy head that leaves slathering lace. The nose has lemony citrus and some yeast strains. Definite lemon and yeasty esters upfront, with a wheat and grain showing up mid-palate, followed by hop presence in the finish. Some light grainy bitters linger appropriately. This feels more like a "hoppy wit" than an IPA, as the body doesnít really support it. This isnít to say that itís not delicious, because it is tasty and well-balanced. I just think the IPA moniker is not exactly what the brew intends. Still very enjoyable!

Lazy yellow pour, bright white head. Ugh, cilantro in beer = soap. I hate really dislike it in a wit, and this is no exception. The hop aroma actually isnít bad, very fruit forward, but then the soapy corriander ruins it. Oh well.

January 2012. On tap at the brewpub in Portland. Golden yellow with a white head. Mix between a wit and an IPA. Intersting concept. The hops makes it intersting and it really works.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is pale straw and cloudy with thin white foam cap. Aroma is lemony citrus with a hint of esters from the Belgian yeast. Taste is slight bit of pale malt into slightly tart lemon with a subtle hop bite on the end. Bitterness is more in line with a pale ale than an IPA. Mouthfeel is fairly light considering the wheat. Finish is dry with nice clean bitterness. Overall, this feels like an American wheat thatís trying to be an IPA but not quite there. I think an American ale yeast would have been better served to accomplish that than the Belgian yeast

12 ounce thanks to Seth. Big hazy yellow pour. Taste is pure wit. These White IPAs are basically wits. Spicy. Coriander. Some hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours chunky straw yellow, with a thin white head, clinging lacing. Aromas of
pine resin, grass, spice, wheat bread. Medium body, low carbonation. Medium sweet, some citrus, medium bitter with an enjoyable pine after-taste. Itís a subtle blend of styles, but nothing stands out. It comes across as indecisive instead of well-rounded.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On guest tap at Colorado Mountain Brewery. A delicious wit/IPA combo, however I get way more wit than hop...much less an IPA level of hop. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but the IBU is as weak as the ABV. I would drink this again for sure though.
