2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks like a wheat beer. Pale straw colour and cloudy. Bit watery tasting. Not much of a typical IPA taste, but not awful. (K)

From a bottle. Pretty much what it says on the bottle, a witbier with a big hop punch, loved it.

Pours a hazy straw color with white head. A lot less sweet, but kinda feels like you’re drinking a fruity soda.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from bottle at promotional display. Pours a pale cloudy straw yellow. Not much of an aroma. Taste is mostly citrus rind and coriander. Similar to Blue Moon. This isn’t really my style of wheat beer. I prefer the German Hefeweizen style over the Belgian Witbier. Probably due to the difference in the spices. To me this is just blah. Not crisp and refreshing. Overall its a no for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/1/2015. Pours hazy bright golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon zest, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, light banana, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, citrus hops, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, light banana, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, coriander, pepper, clove, light banana, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, citrus hops, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice White IPA style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, citrus hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
