4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Since there is not a proper classification for this relatively new style, some folks might rate it as your typical IPA and under that title it will come up short. Itís a White IPA and it really is in a class of itís own. Unfiltered, it pours a hazy light gold with a frothy white head. Pine, citrus, caramel, honey, wheat, light spices and lemon readily greet the nasal passages. A smooth bitter start transitioning to a lightly sweet honey finish make this softly carbonated velvety smooth quaff a blast.

Wow would have expected better scores for this brew. I guess people hate change. Poured a straw colour with lots of fun stuff floating around in my glass and had a frothy white head that lasted. Aroma was of pine, floral hops, citrus, and grass. Tastes of pine, lemon, caramel, floral hops, grass. Has a medium body with average carbonation and a nice lemon kick at the end. This beer was very fresh tasting and I could quaff the whole bottle or more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1L bottle. Lemon yellow, floaties like a snow globe. Tropical and sourdough bread aromas. Bitterness is quite intense, if feel the claim of 65 ibus on the bottle might be underplaying it a bit. Lemongrass offsets some of the bitterness, bit it could have used a stronger malt. Would be good with spicey Asian food.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Visual: Pours golden yellow-orange with a dissipating bubbly head, a thin layer of retention, sticky lacing, a few steady streams.
Nose: faint grapefruit hops, lemongrass, some fishiness. (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: incoming sharp bitter hops
Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) sweet malts, big bitter grapefruit peel hops, lemongrass overtones,
Finish: biting bitter hoppiness, lemongrass, (palate fatigue), lingering bitter hopped rough finish.
Summary: The lemongrass is definitely in there from mids to finish, but the hops are just way too sharp and heavy for me. An okay brew but really heavy on the palate just 1/4 way through.

Nose brings out lemongrass, lemon zest, Belgian yeast, some coriander and piney hops. Flavour brings out spicy hops, Belgian yeast, lemon zest, and biscuity notes. Quite dry, spicy and grassy on the finish

Taste has notes of citrus, wheat/grains, slight bubblegum, yeast, grass. Grassy hops int he finish with a medium bitterness that lingers. Mouthfeel is light. Nice white IPA, refreshing and hoppy. Drinks lighter than 6%, not too bad.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy yellowish gold with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, lemongrass, bread and wheat. Taste is lemongrass, citrus hops, pine, resin, grapefruit, bread, wheat and an astringent bitterness on the finish. Overall a nice white ipa just a hit of an astringent bitterness that takes away from the overall beer.
