COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with wheat and pilsner malt; this IPA displays beautiful citrus aromas from Cascade and Citra hops that meld with the esters of Belgian yeast. Think thirst quenching hopped-up wit beer with enough IBUs to warrant the IPA name.

lightly clouded straw-yellow. Beautiful rising lines of carbonation and a few mm of pale white head. Aroma is pear, light lemon, sweet grain, hints of spicy yeast. Body is fine prickly carbonation on top of a light, syrup texture. Flavor has moderate lemon, pineapple, citrus with notes of pear and peach, as well as smooth grassy hop notes transitioning into a light and forgiving bitterness. Much better than I thought it would be.

Pale yellow, malty aroma, tastes of citrus and malt. Hardly any bitterness at the end, but there’s a touch there. Grapefruit juice and malt, but not in a bad way.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly hazy pale gold with about 3 fingers of white head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit, wheat, belgian yeast and some spices. Taste is lightly bitter. Citrus, spicy yeast and wheat. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall, not bad. Not really what I was expecting and nothing I would really seek out.

I would call this less a White IPA and more a Belgian Wheat IPA. Or even a tea IPA because this is like chamomile to me. Pours a hazy light yellow with no bitterness that I can detect. A nice golden Belgian with some slight hefe notes. I could drink many of these.

12 oz. Cloudy straw color with a small ring of bubbles. Wheat bubblegum, bread yeast, citrus peel, and lots of resin on the nose. Taste is the same flavors with a big evergreen resin and citrus zest finish. Light-medium body is dry, astringent and has medium carbonation. Nice-’n-easy summertime IPA that seems to be a hopped-up Wit.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2012 Bottle. Mixed aromas of yeast, spice, lemon, citrus. and light hops. Very pale cloudy yellow with a 2-cm. head. Sharp bit of tart citrus juice initial, then some spice, and final is balanced and just a little tart. Thin-medium bosy. Nice little job of hybridizing. Pleasant and refreshing. Update: also had on tap at the PDX brewery. 6/4/6/3/14 Total: 3.3 Maybe the bottled version is slightly better? So.... is White IPA the new Black IPA?

(draught) cloudy light yellow with white bubbles. Nose of sage, stone fruit, herbal and fresh. Taste isn’t as good, earthy, dirty water, sage and other herbs. Finish is a bit dingy. Not my favorite but ok.

Was not a fan of this hefe-IPA. Was expecting something different when it was described to me by one of their employees at a tasting. Not a bad beer, just didn’t taste right for me.

Growler sample via and shared with oakbluff. Sunny straw yellow in colour with medium carbonation and haze. Aromas are of cream of wheat breakfast cereal, orange blossom, lemon, and coriander. Flavours are more of a lemon-lime mix, along with more wheat, citric and herbal hops. Dry mouthfeel with a very mellow bitterness. Very tasty stuff. I thought it would be rated higher.
