Scent of melon and peach some line resin. Light see through yellow shade. Taste is juicy with Orange lemon and line resin finish lightly. Med to Light body light sweet tangy carbonation. One of not my favorite white ipa.

Hazy golden brew that smells of citrus hops and some grain. Taste is citrus, spice, slight grain, and with a bit of bitter bite. Really good brew but wish I could have gotten it in the spring instead of late fall. Sell by on bottle was 04/15/15 and here it is 12/10/15. Hadnít seen it on the shelf until this week so once again our distributors in this area have shown me how much they suck.

Slightly cloudy body with some suspended particles. The headf reduces to a thin soapy ring that leaves some spotty lace. Aromas of herbal and citrus hops some malts, wheat and faint traces of funk and booze. Flavor is much the same the hops get a little bitter but the malts come out a bit more. Overall its ok but not one of the better white IPAís available.

Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is wheaty and slightly lemony with a little bit of citrusy malt character. There is also a little bit of lemon and a bit of light fruit. Pithy kind of bitterness with some citrus. Sticky finish.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. The enjoy by date had passed a month ago. Itís not Harpoonís fault. It poured a hazy yelow. The aroma was hops and a little skunkiness. The taste was crisp with hops and citrus. It was crisp but not super fresh. This was still good. It probably would be rated a little higher if fresh.

Slightly cloudy golden with a thin Rocky white head. Gorgeous aroma of pine and resinous floral tones mix with white wheat and coriander and white peppercorn. Full and wonderfully complex hoppy tone of floral and slightly orange rind-ish bites mix with white Belgian wheat, loads of coriander, a little pepper, and more American hoppiness for a full robust hoppy and balanced hitter finish. Wonderfully complex.

Bottle - Pours a clear golden/yellow with a typical head. Citrus, mango, and pine aromas. Refreshing balance of aromas with a bitter finish.

Charakter troch jak blonde, lekko owocowe. Opalizujące. Świetna piana. Delikatna guma balonowa w IPA. Mokry karton w posmaku. Brak goryczki.

Pours a clear pale yellow color with aroma of grain, citrus, and pine. Citrus flavor with pepper, pine, toasted malt, and hint of hops. Decent beer.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, good 1" frothy white head, bands of lace. Taste is malt that is overcome by medium hops, wiping out all the malt. Nice IPA, but definitely standard issue.
