Tampa, Fl - Total Wine & More - 12 oz bottle. Light golden pour, slight haze, bubbly thin white head. Pleasant light floral aroma with a hint of spruce. Flavor is pleasant with some grassy notes, a hint of light citrus bitterness, some light saffron-like spiciness and pear fruitiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Not overloaded with flavor, but pleasant.

surprised this scored so high with other people. I thought it was a little thin. Flavor isnít balanced as well as it could be. Iíd pass on this one.

A- Citrus, piney, orange, subtle spice.
A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Piney, bitter, citrus, spices, spruce.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, hoppy meaty finish.
O- Had it about a month after best by date so naturally it wasnít optimal. Quite hoppy and good amounts of citrus with a little spice. The finish had a little bit of a meaty flavor but it wasnít bad. I wanted to love this but only ended up liking it. All in all, a decent beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a cloudy pastel yellow with a dense sudsy head that falls to a 1/4 cap.
Aroma: Banana, floral hops, spiced cookie.
Taste: Wheat ale qualities: sour dough, banana. Modest but noticeable hop spice. All and all not very bitter at all. Finishes earthy.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, lively carbonation.
Overall: Pretty drinkable, more like a wheat beer than an IPA. Very balanced and a great candidate for a gateway beer or a beer to pair with food.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Meditrina. Hazy pale orange with lasting white head and lace. Beautiful citrus pastry and mild spicy aroma. Very dry almost flavorless/non-existent pineapple herbal sweetness with medium herbal bitterness. Light refreshing body. Much more IPA than White. Very good, but not as good as some other in the White IPA style. Missing the wheaty tang.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled pale buff head. Pomme fruity mainly pear, dominates the aroma but letís through malty and evergreen hop notes. Hops however, are the strongest note in the palate, and take the stage with pear, Mandarin orange, and malty tones. Strong tingle in the mouthfeel helps you feel it all the way down. A spring beer, but great for summer too.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter because at the time I thought this was a Belgian IPA. I see its an IPA here, so uh... well here goes.
The appearance had a nice hazy golden yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light foamy lacing sticking adequately to the sides of the glass.
The smell had a fairly nice spice to it, at the time, I thought it was a somewhat Belgian spiciness of sorts. Some light piney hops entered in after a bit of warming.
The taste was somewhat bitter and piney with a fairly nice spice added to the flavor.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was slightly harsh but not overly done.
Overall, Belgian IPA or just AIPA, no worries to me, Iíd have it again if I could get it again.
