PorterPounder (6143) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2014
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.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
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. It’s not Harpoon’s 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.

onceblind (5312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2015
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.

bkurtz (991) - PERU - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle - Pours a clear golden/yellow with a typical head. Citrus, mango, and pine aromas. Refreshing balance of aromas with a bitter finish.

adasko (946) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Charakter troch jak blonde, lekko owocowe. Opalizujące. Świetna piana. Delikatna guma balonowa w IPA. Mokry karton w posmaku. Brak goryczki.

alobar (3056) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2015
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.

rondphoto (2778) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 25, 2015
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.

rdixon77 (1540) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Old rating. Cloudy gold pour. Wheaty, citrusy, some pepper, piney bitter finish. Pretty solid, but unspectacular IPA.

Stoned99 (479) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
On tap The Royal Pig Pub & Kitchen. Aroma: Wheat, citrus, floral. App: slightly hazy golden with small white head and some lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, crisp medium bitter finish, average carbonation. Overall: good refreshing white IPA on this hot weather day in Fort Lauderdale.

shadey (1987) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a bright gold with a nice soapy head of heterogeneous bubbles. Some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is really nice, fruity, tart, hops. Flavors are sweet, bright, fresh, and clean. Great hop character that really surprised me. Very nice and something I could drink a lot of.
