Well...if this was part of the 100 barrel series, I am glad that I found it in a 12 oz. bottle. This was only one single on clearance for $1 at ABC liquor, so I grabbed it to sample since there’s all these other white IPAs coming out. Not as tropical as the one’s here in FL, but I liked this a lot. Has that New England/ English IPA flavor and feel. Not super hoppy, but balanced quite nice. This is great for a food pairing or just good everyday beer. I’d grab a 6 if I see it around. We get Harpoon down here, but not heavily distributed with all the other competition.

Harpoon The Long Thaw White IPA is pleasant surprise and a tasty brew. Pours a bright orange-yellow with thick white head that retains well. Aroma is an intoxicating tropical fruit. Taste is also very tropical with peppery hop notes and pleasant clean finish. Long Thaw is definitely worth the wait for a delicious IPA.

Bottle in NYC. Clean, sharp and well understood beer when tasting. A nice fruit note, apricot and citrus, balances with a herb-fresh body. Smooth clean and tasty, with good green hop bite. Clean and hits well in its areas.

This is a well crafted white IPA. Has a crisper, light bite that increase slightly while not being overly hoppy. The bitterness that lingers reminds you that it's an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Eulogy. Clear gold pour with lasting off-white foam. Glossy sweet blonde malts with some amber fruit and citrusy hops. Medium-bodied. Fragrant ascetic aroma. Caramels. Yellow plums. Lady apples. Peaches. Honeycomb. Buttery croissants. Slight peppery spice. Cannot say I like it much but I find it oddly interesting.
