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.

Pours a unique and beautiful opaquely hazy pale pale pale gold - reminiscent of pineapple juice. Smells of musty funky orange peel, lemon zest, moldy hay. Tastes pretty one dimensional - just an onslaught of all the notes above. A very pleasant beer with a funky monk punch.

msante79 (2216) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
12oz bottle from Binny’s-Des Plaines. Pours hazy pale yellow with white head. Aromas of zesty lemon, wheat, and perfumey hops. Flavors of grassy hops, lemon, wheat, and light spices. Body is a little thin and carbonation is a nice. OK so this is not your prototypical IPA or Wit, but I found this to be extremely refreshing and enjoyable. Sessionable at 5.6%. I drank a whole six pack and cannot remember the last time I did that with a single craft beer in one sitting. I will be revisiting this soon.

Bottle. A hazy pale yellow body makes this one look like a wit. There is a thin bright white head. The nose has some strong grapefruit. There is also some almonds and bread crust. Hints of clove come through on the nose. This tastes like a straight up wit, lots of clove and then some greater citrus grapefruit come through. There is also some ash in the finish. Not a wit fan and this does not help improve my perception.

Nicest white IPA I have tried - aroma nice mix of mild IPA hoppiness with mild citrus of wit in the background; taste is pleasantly bitter but with nice wheat accents/balance present too; Belgian yeast gives excellent Belgo character and round out a very nice brew!

ccex (1080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2012
12 oz bottle pours a pale straw yellow color with a small but lasting white head and some lacing. Aroma is more like a Belgian Witbier than an IPA. Wheat and spices are dominant, with some weak floral hops. Practically no malts. Body is light to medium with average carbonation. Very easily drinkable and refreshing, but not what I expected from something called an IPA

GT2 (9364) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Tap at Yard House in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Pours a low haze, straw with very good white lace. Full, webby along the glass. Hoppy and sharp zesty citrus nose. Excellent taste: hoppy, fresh, zesty lemon/lime, very clean with no soap or off flavors. Refreshing. Had two pints of this one, so good.

On draught at Slice Parlor- Albuquerque. Poura a dense gold color with a lasting white fine-bubble head. Citrusy aroma. Medium body. Nontraditional blend of wheat and big hoppy flavors. Overall it might work.

Delightful citrus aroma probably due to hops. Very light bodied beer, but a wonderful hop flavor that finishes smooth. Great for summer time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
