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.

mensch (246) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Cloudy light yellow with a fleeting white head. Lemon candy aroma, a hint of spice. Complex flavor profile, more lemon and spice, hop flavor and some belgianyness. Light, dry finish. Very much like a white with lots o’ hops. Interesting, refreshing, even tasty, but not totally cohesive.

Stine (1530) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Light, hazed golden pour. Saltwater and biscuit aroma foremost. Lightest spice, and chlorinated water. Distant spruce, coriander, banana, silage.

The flavor is mimicking both styles with a prevalence of dirtiness and trash. Though often crisp, with fresh tarragon and the buoyancy of wheat characteristics, there is a combination of astringent tea and plain, overripe fruit sugars that persistently stakes its claim. Saltine crackers, dry straw, pear skin.

Doughy body with imperfect attenuation. Creamy banana notes and coriander pungency carry through. Zesty dried green herbs in a flash prior to a midlength, cushy and grassy finish.

OldMrCrow (1809) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle in Santa Barbara.

Light pour, like watered-down pineapple juice, with a nice white head. Citra-driven citrus absolutely dominates the aroma, but that’s not a bad thing here. A little bit of onion character. A little bit of spice. Lots of a grapefruit in the flavor, some pith, some onion. Pretty tasty and entirely drinkable. A good option for a someone-else-brough-the-beer picnic.

I know it’s uncool but I actually quite like a number of the white IPAs I’ve had (Anchorage Galaxy, I’m looking at you in particular) and I certainly prefer these new-school hop white IPAs to the old-school hop West Coast belgian IPAs.

Sampled @ GBBF. Bottle shared. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, citrus, hops, slightly hay and slightly grassy. Decent body and carbonation.

Jay_Dubbz (83) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Poured from draft at Barnaby's in Havertown PA. Didnt love anything about this beer. Felt it lacked flavor from all components and would not consider this an IPA for the lack of hop burst. --you've been Dubbed.

dlbeer (771) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with white head. Smells of yeast, malt and hops. Tastes sweet on the front with a bitter hop finish. Like the citra hops in there. One of the better white IPAs I've head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (1658) - Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle: Super-hazy, bright sunshine & banana yellow color, vibrant, with a soapy, chalk-white head that leaves nice webbing on the glass. Aroma is heavy on the Belgian yeast but not overpowering; clove gum, candied orange peel, hints of coriander, overripe banana esters; hints of grapefruit zest & spicy herbal hop notes underneath. Taste takes a swing more towards the American hop side of things, trumping the Belgian yeast on the palate. White pepper covered grapefruit peel with a light candied element, a hint of sweetbread, some mild hop oil, a touch of pungent melon, & a little dirty earthiness. Belgian yeast comes alive mid-palate into the finish, but still is a supporting role only. Some mild coriander, clove, & spiciness. A citric peel bitterness lingerings long into the aftertaste. A pretty tasty beer, honestly wasn’t expecting much from this.

WillRunForBeer (632) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Draft at Park on Fremont. Pours cloudy orange gold with a big wte head to a mason jar glass. Citrus, grapefruit hop on the nose. Not so hoppy in the mouth. Characteristic wheat beer, light citrus, belgian yeast... with just a bit of grapefruit peel bittering in the finish.
