Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent honey-orange with thin white lacing. Smells of hops, dough, orange zest, coriander, and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with a solid Belgian mouthfeel. I’m not a huge fan of IPAs using Belgian yeast, but this one is decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a nice looking slightly hazy gold with an average size long-lasting frothy off-white head. Lacing on the glass. Pleasant aroma of citrus and other fruit, light hops, herbs and yeast. Flavour of fruit first followed by wheat, yeast, hops and herbs. Long moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. A nice surprise, I quite liked this, a nice Summer sipper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy golden pour with a fine white head. Head faded fast but left a decent amount of lace in the glass.
Lots of yeast esters in the nose--cloves, Juicy Fruit gum. Biscuity malt.
Biscuit malt, yeasty esters prominent as in the nose. Nice, spicy hop aftertaste balances the malt and yeast notes. Lots of Juicy Fruit gum, mango in the finish.
Medium full body
Very tasty. I didn't really pick up on any spices per se, maybe a little coriander in the finish, but that was about it. This is a very yeast forward beer. Nice and refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aromas of flowers, citrus fruit, banana, coriander, and orange peel. Hazy orange-peach with a mostly fading, white head. Dry, fruity, and floral, with dominant flavors of banana and orange rind. Light bodied, smooth, and spicy, with fluffy carbonation, and a fruity finish, with some lingering astringent off-flavors.

I really enjoyed this brew. It has a sweet almost root beer like aroma. The flavor has a clean sweet up front and a nice hop bite. Finishes crisp and clean.

On tap at the bocktown. looks like hefe but the smell is hefe and ipa perfume. Odd spicey olfactory. Smell is that of BO and banana. On the buds, this mix does not go well together IMHO. Think bubble gum flavored hops. Not impressed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle (best by Aug 2013) - pours hazy deep gold with white head and decent lacing. Nose is wheat with citrus. Flavor adds alcohol, herbal hops and mild cereal. Well balanced with a lingering bitterness. I could get used to white IPA’s. I don’t get the spicy notes the label suggests, but I do get the orange peel. Not as refreshing as I would expect.
