3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is last summerís bottle with a 6/21/13 best by date, so perhaps that accounts for the subdued aroma and flavor. Hazy light yellow color with white head. Minimal lacing. Subdued lemon citrus aroma. Flavor is lemon citrus, mild sweetness, mild hoppy finish. Thin mouthfeel. Lightly carbonated. This is an easy to drink beer with citrus characteristics, and one of the beers I stock and enjoy coming back to.

Honestly, this beer may not be at the top of wither the wit or ipa levels, and it doesnít stand out as one over the other, but this beer is, for me at least, a great blend of my two favorite styles. Wow, the was an atrocious sentence...this has the wheat backbone with a light punch of hops that is a great drinker anytime of the day.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a yellowish gold. Flakes prevalent. Small white head, disappears quickly. Taste is good, nothing too special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sort of looks like a sour, sorta tastes like a sour, but it is not a sour. Sickly yellow with soapy foam, it has an acidic nose at first, followed by dry biscuit. Itís a bit acidic rolling over the tongue, but finishes as a bready IPA. Itís OK.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Tap] Pours a somewhat cloudy golden color with a large and foamy white head. Citrus hop nose. Decent Belgian character to the flavor was pleasantly surprising, and a little unexpected. A good amount of wheat malt, spice, and vanilla mix with the hoppy character pretty well. I find most beers in this style are hit or miss for me, but this was one of the good ones in my opinion. Tasting notes from 1/2014.

From the bottle there is a little nose & more suspended particles than most of my homebrew. Over-carbonated, why bother calling it an ipa, itís very Belgian, and thatís ok & I mean that in the most respectful yeasty, spicy way...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pineapple juice hazy yellow. Nose pine, pineapple, floral hop, sugars. Tastes very fruity, pineapple, oranges, sour apple, Belgian yeast, lemon, clean, toothpasty finish. Not bitter, this is not really an ipa to me. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
aroma- coriander and citric. Spicey and peppery phenols. Slight sulphur.
appearance- Straw to light yellow with a frothy white head and a few rising bubbles. Some haze.
taste - Lemon, a citric tartness. A low toasted sweetness tries to sneak in through the citra hop flavor. Medium bitterness
palate - medium body with a creamy texture. Medium high carbonation followed by a slighyly dry finish.
overall - This is tough. If I am judging this beer as an IPA, as the title suggests, then it is obviously out of place. The use of a Belgian yeast strain and Citra hops are really enjoyable. Until there is a Belgian IPA category this should be considered a Belgian Specialty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of Belgian yeast, with hints of hops. Pours cloudy straw with short lived white head and moderate lacing. The palate follows the nose - Belgian yeast, with bitter finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable and very drinkable with a chef salad.
