Tap. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast balanced aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good brew.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour with soapy white head. Smells of citrusy hops. Strong hop flavor. Not bad.

Tallboy at Lambeau Field in Green Bay....hard to tell color and nose, really, given that the Wisconsin way is to drink from the bottle or can....
Be that as it may, this is the BEST beer I've ever bought at sporting event.
Taste is a little overly herbal but still not bad; good given the low ABV
Will do another when I can actually pour it into something.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy golden body with a nice three centimetre tall white head. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, alcohol and a nice piney and floral hop scent. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong wheat and hop flavours at first with a good light wheatie and yeast flavour and some smooth grassy flavours near the end. Aftertaste is mild with only some hops and mild yeast coming through with a little wheat and banana flavours. Overall, not a bad White IPA - showing some good fresh hops, but leaving the palate very mild and subdued throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on 30-December-2013 for US$1.99 sampled in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida on 02-January-2013.

Pours a clear bright golden. Medium creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, some nice citrus, grapefruit and orange, little floral, some light sweet dry malt. Flavor is a bit simpler and doesn’t quite match up. Lighter medium body. Lighter bitterness. Lacking finish.

Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Pours a hazy, pale light amber color with a frothy head that fades to a nice thick ring and leaves great lacing. Aromas are Belgian yeast, grapefruit, lemons, and light spices. Tastes like a Belgian session ale. Nice spicy lemon taste up front and finishes with moderate Belgian yeast. Medium to full body. Nice stingy carbonation works well here. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would since I’m not usually a fan of white IPA’s.

Draft to taster. Looks Good for a White IPA; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells solid; hoppy and a little spicy with notes of orange zest and grapefruit. Tastes like it smells, only milder, with a solid, fairly light mouthfeel. Refreshing.

12oz bottle with no visible date on it - I grace this elixir by pouring it into my only remaining Duvel tulip glass (the other one broke when I tried to shake the last drop from a bomber). before the appearance, even though I rarely comment on it anymore thanks to shigadeyo’s convincing argument against it, "well no shit; it’s [insert color]", the smell of fresh BO (yes, body odor) permeates the kitchen and no it’s not from me the stinky Frenchman, but from this bottle. Pshit... pass out. A close and courageous sniff reveals citrus (lemon peel and sweet something or other). Flavors from the sip pale in comparison to the smell: slight grassiness. Light and refreshing. How is this not in the new style: Session IPAs? Moderate bitterness but not formidable. Would I have another? sure. Likely? no. I think this will max out at 3.4... let’s see. Yup.
PS: Tchaikovsky is my favorite composer. Listening to the Nutcracker probably inflated the score of this beer for me.
