22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, some spiciness and wheat and light fruits, and caramel malts. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops and malts to balance it out. Average texture. A pretty interesting IPA.

Slightly hazy golden with a foamy/rocky head. Nose of slightly sour orange zest and clove-y wheat. Flavor is nicely hoppy bitter with acidic citrus zest, spicy clove, and a dry clove and dusty finish. A little bitter but I still like it.

Pours gold-yellow with a big, white frothy head. Aroma is amazing; incredibly floral; citrus, pine, caramel. Taste is citrus, pine, caramel sweetness. Great full flavor. Superbly balanced. Medium carbonation; nice for the aromatic hops. This is a really excellent beer from two incredible breweries. It tastes wonderful and is incredibly balanced. This beer truly wins in the nose. The aromatics are worth the whole bottle. If you see this in stores, grab a bottle.

The aroma is very hoppy and sweet with spices and citrus. The appearance is golden with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and quite bitter. The palate is smooth. Overall this is good but really bitter.

651mL from Norm’s in Vienna, VA. Last bottle of theirs I think. Late to the bandwagon on this one. Pours cloudy, glowing orange. Enormous, billowing white head. Huge webby lacing and volcanic retention. Nose is pomelo, white grapefruit, chamomile, mild dusty/woody/barrel, biscuit, pale wort. Soft, herbal, not stale. Taste is similar- dusty, herbal, quite dry with some spices, melon rind, bitter grapefruit juice. Very enjoyable even if not super fresh. Maybe this is the secret to IPA longevity: Black IPAs and White IPAs.

Picked up a bomber bottle at Best Damn Beer Shop in San Diego, CA. Tasted from a tulip glass. Pours golden with a slight haze and a big frothy off-white head. Nice, large bands of lacing. Aromas of piny/citrusy hops, citrus, and spicy yeast. Sweet, lemony flavors, combining with a light maltiness and the wonderful zestiness of the hops and yeast. Medium-bodied, with a long, resinous, lightly bitter finish. A very interesting beer. Excellent.
