pours a cloudy white-yellow with a very small white head, and some lacing.
smell is of wheat, some citrus, and some hops.
taste is of wheat, banana, slight citrus, and some spice. ends like a wit but different, more hoppier.

Golden in color, hazy with a thin white head. Lots of aroma with both yeast and malts and light hops. This was a very interesting beer with a interesting Belgian yeast backing. The yeast in my humble opinion covers the hops for a super IPA Belgian flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with a bright golden hue and a thick, four centimetre tall white head - nice with zillions of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, coriander seed, a hint of earthier hops and a little bit of curacao and lemons. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast and wheat flavour with definite spice notes of coriander seed, a hint of nutmeg and a little clove, some light sweetness, but almost not hops at all. Aftertaste shows mainly wheat and yeast with a bit of spice and a complex clove note. Overall, a good wit, but I’m not seeing anything resembling an IPA or ’White IPA’ at all about this one. Definitely nice to try, but I’ll see what else the brewer offers the next time I’m out West. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 11-January-2013 for US$5.79 sampled at home back east in the Real Washington on 01-February-2013.

22. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. lots of sheeting ace. Big bubblegum nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, bread, bubble gum, and watermelon on the mid palate. Kind of all over the place, but weird yeast combinations are definitely the signature of the house.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured hazy, copper orange. Nose had nice wheat and yeast esters. Some notes in this, especially is it warmed up, really came of like a Weizen Bock. With added hoppy bitterness. Quite nice. Lots of banana and other tropical fruits with earthy spice hop characters. Effervescent yeast notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
little bubblegum, little dough, and some passion fruit and herbal notes which I deduce are the authors hops. a little sweet and phenolic as well. pours hazy golden frothy head. flavors of dough bubblegum phenolic passion fruit floral herbal hop notes some caramel. kind of jumbled and messy. lingering plasticity note. not unpleasant. just needs work imo.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Light pale golden color. Really nice frothy white head, great retention. Aroma is oranges, bubblegum, banana, cloves - think hefeweissen or wit. Taste is nice and sweet. Hop bitterness is present but quite muted. Quite tasty overall. Not sure I get the "ipa" part of it, but very smooth, drinkable, and pleasant.
