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.

tfontana (124) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Aroma is resinous, spruce and citrusy hops with fruity esters. Appearance is cloudy yellow with less than 1 finger white head with fair retention but nice lacing. Taste is mildly sweet fruity ester with moderate bitterness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and long mildly bitter finish. As advertised, a cross between an IPA and a wit beer. Very good at what it does. Slightly more bitter than I prefer.

fidelis83 (2167) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Very cloudy dark yellow pour with a one finger, creamy to soapy bright white head. Aroma is bright lemon and sour orange heavy citrus, and sweet pineapple heavy tropical fruit, light perfume and soapy hops, a hint of floral stone fruit and tart stone fruit juice, lemony wheat, and floury grain. Flavor is light doughy yeast, lemon, exotic floral notes, lots of bright citrus and pineapple, flour, a little tart melon and dry, under ripe stone fruit. Light body, slightly slick, but chalky entry, light to medium, sharp carbonation, medium hop acid bite and dry, chalky, slightly astringent finish. Quite tasty overall.

hockey9930 (152) - - JUN 11, 2015
Cloudy pale yellow with miniscule head. Citrus and coriander aroma. Hops are weaker than I expected. The blend of wheat and spices makes this much more of a Belgian white than an ipa. Hops come through as grapefruit. Thin and light. Very nice ale for summer.

Some fruity aromas especially pear. Astrong smell of Belgian bready malts, Herbal hops and a slight spiciness. Unique white IPA. Nice summer beverage.
