   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
Panzuriel (1258) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2013
This beer pours a clear medium golden with a nice head of tiny white bubbles. Citrus, lemon and grapefruit on the nose. Taste is a nice hit of hops with more of that grapefruit presence at the front. The taste disappears towards mid and finishes with a little bit of metallic hint. Body thin and fluid. Just a bit tangy. Overall somewhat disappointing after a good first impression. On tap at pies and pints Worthington Ohio.

Clear amber with a thick rim head, light swirls of lace. Taste is sweet malt that moves cleanly through the palate, adding mild butter rum and fresh mown hay. Just enough bittering at the finish to balance. Nicely conceived, well-executed, very drinkable. Recommended.

AmEricanbrew (5523) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Clear light amber color with ivory head. Nice floral hop, wit spice, caramel aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Big hoppy floral flavors with wit brew spices, and pale malts--drying finish----good

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2013
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from The Union. Clear golden color. Little white head. Medium to bigger body. Lighter, kind of soft carbonation, with a very dry texture. Taste is stronger bitter, with some alcohol warmth. Some grassy, citrusy hops. Spicier flavor. Hint of citrus peel. Tastes a little stronger than the other "white IPAs" I’ve tried. Alright, overall.

Pint at Woodlands Tavern on 4/5/13. Clear yellow to gold pour with a thick white head. Citrusy and grassy nose with Belgian ester notes and malt. Malty flavor with grassy hops and some citrus before a spicy finish.

trumble117 (6) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2013 does not count
Light body but strong hop presence. Fairly sweet with notes of citrus. Finishes clean if not underwhelming.

mikesaum (592) - Newark, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pours golden with a really thin white head. Aroma is very lemony, strong lemon zest, good hops and some cat urine. Taste is good clean citrus hops, nice bitterness. Good solid beer.

jsquire (3341) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Sampled at the ’12 Columbus Microbrew Festival. Pale gold color with a thin white head. Big citrus hop nose. Flavors of grapefruit rind, orange zest and some lemon notes, all over a thin bready back bone. Long, burning grapefruit hop tingle in the finish. A little thin, but still a solid hop head beer.
