3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours dishwater gold with a foamy white head. Looks like a wit. Light aromas of citrus and yeast/spice. Med body. There’s strong flavor. Citrus, yeast/spice, fruit. I’d classify this as a wit beer, though one that’s really amped up. Weird but interesting.

Drinkable, but relatively forgettable. This has a lemony nose and decent spice/hop balance, but it doesn’t really show Witbier or IPA character very well. Refreshing however.

Overall this is a great beer. However, the smell and appearance is not great. The taste is excellent though. It is smooth and does not have an unpleasant after taste.

Very light color that reminds me of white grape juice. Sweet citrus flavor. Light taste that is drinkable in the summer. This beer is something interesting that I will definitely drink more of!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazey piss yellow in color with a frothy, white head. Poor lacing. Citrusy aroma with slight floral notes. There is a light sour taste with a very light bitter taste. This is a beer that finishes smooth. Light carbonation with a thin texture. I prefer an IPA to have more of a bit to it. But overall a sessionable beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful cloudy pale yellow with medium white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, and wheat. Flavor is of banana, wheat, heavy citrus, and light hop bitterness. Tastes much more like a Belgian wit than an IPA, which doesn’t have me complaining. A very refreshing summer beer!

12 oz. for picnic. Interesting IPA with a definite Belgian flavor to it. It appears that twisting IPA recipes is all the rage these days but I don’t think this beer does any one thing well. Though I’m not usually a stickler for style, this tastes too weird for an IPA, and too hoppy for a Belgian. Putting them together doesn’t lead to the balanced brew I’d hoped for.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear pale yellow with a greenish tinge. Aroma of lemon, hay, powdered sugar. crisp and refreshing in the mouth. the hops express as citrus, lightly, with some light syrup sweetness & distant nutmeg. clean finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a bright cloudy yellow with visible sediment in the body. Not much of a head on this guy, within seconds the foam subsides to a thin film.
Aroma: An aromatic battle of spicy wibier yeast and citrusy hop. In the end, the spicy fruity yeast nose wins.
Taste: Fruity spicy Belgian yeast, some citrus peel, coriander. Finishes spicy and metallic.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, active carbonation.
Overall: A very assertive witbier.

Now that’s how you make an IPA. Nice and light, crisp, fruity even. Kind of reminds me of a nice white wine.
