3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, from the Pipeline... If White IPA was an accepted style, it would be my favorite style right now. Love both Deschutes and Boulevard, so this should be awesome... Pours a hazy pale gold, almost watery looking, into my Minneapolis Town Hall glass, head is 1-finger thick, white, and overall quite nice. Nose is lemongrass, white pepper, clean and spicy wheat, clove, ginger, so much lemony citrus here... Flavours of lemon, bright wheat, peppercorns, some ginger, really refreshing!

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy yellow-slight orange with thin white head, aroma brought notes of big belgian esters and white pepper, hints of pear, apricot, touch of orange and lemon zest, some nice biscuit as well, this smells delicious. Taste is a bit sweet but notes of biscuit and bread, hints of esters with pear, tropical fruit, touch of pineapple, hints of orange, lemon and grapefruit notes, finish fairly sweet as mentioned.

Shared with Travlr.
Old? Hazy yellow straw color with lots of head. Nice lacing. Smell is orangey citrus, fresh cut grass, and wheat. Taste is like orange juice, with a bitter finish. Grassy, summery. Doesn’t seem much like an IPA.

This was a fun one...I know that there is a fair amount of hops and that there was a good amount of citrus to this beer. I paired this beer with a shrimp and crab pizza with cheese that starts with a G and it was amazing. It serves as a great compliment to lighter foods and greens. The hops and the citrus compliment each other well.

Pours a very very hazy lemon yellow with very frothy white head. Aroma is intense citrus-lemon/grapefruit. Flavor is mostly lemon with nutty bready tones. Body is creamy but with very active carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Says best before 1/11 but was still good for me. Good mix of wheat and grapefruit for aroma. Body yellow with white head and some sugar coat lace on glass. Flavor of grapefruit jucie and fro a night shifter hit the spot. Refreshing brew and enjoyable.

Really nice brew. Sampled in a big bottle in Boulder. Pours deep orange with a thin head on it. Decent carbonation but comes out really nice and clear. Quality quality malts.
