2014-08-14, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Cloudy deep blond color with compact head. More accent on the hops than on the "white" part, mellow, fruity, stone fruits, with moderate sweetness. Well balanced, fresh and enjoyable.

Cloudy deep blond color with small compact head. Harmonious aroma, of hops and malt, quite delicate, with a hint of tropical fruits. Smooth flavor; it has a mild spicy character, strong hopping, with a good combination of lemon peel, orange and some tropical fruit too. Light sweetness in the end.
Very nice.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Hazy blonde, slightly catty aroma, maybe orchard fruit hops, a touch of yeasty esters. Has a fresh fruity character, the usual dry, assertive "pale hoppy" that TdD does so well.

Lubiere (11004) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
A hazed golden ipa with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, a nice grassy caramel malt with fruity esters, citrusy hops with lemon notes, very Belgian and nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with lemon notes, catty hops, light cloves in finale. On tap at Oktoberfest des Québecois 2013.

Cask @ Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015, Montréal, QC
Pours hazy golden with no head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, citrus and grass. Taste is meidum sweet and light to medium bitter with a long yeasty, citrus and grassy finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is flat.

A good IPA hiding behind the wheat, spice and malt. A white IPA, good drinkability. Glad I picked this up.

mcberko (9205) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
650mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out floral hops, light Belgian yeast and crackery malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with a nice dry palate, including dry crackery malt, a touch of Belgian yeast and floral hops. Very well-balanced, dry and drinkable. Decent stuff.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Pale golden pour with a thick white head. Cloudy and very attractive. The nose is quite lovely - a bit of tropical fruit, mango, kiwi and some light fruit as well a moderately warming feeling. A touch of pepper and some nice soft hoppiness. It has a nice freshness that is quite appealing. Soft and bright and tropical. Lovely beer.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 My Bottom Line:
Pineapple groves and flower petals thrive within this White IPA’s summery profile, while coniferous hop bitterness slowly takes hold of the slender and bubbly palate.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A gorgeous cumulus of foam covers the initially misty gold. Nice flocculation here, as the last glass is full of yeast while the first was nearly clear.
-Effervescence and relative dryness make this beer instantly festive.
-Drinkability is through the roof for a 6.5% brew.
-Some green pears appear here and there.
-The coniferous bitterness is lengthy yet balanced with the fruity perfume.

Bottles and on tap at the brewpub.

Bottle, shared with phantomhennes, heavyleavy, and TvM at game night. Very hazy light orange-gold, lively lacy white head. Lovely bright citrus and tropical fruit hop profile, light sweet caramel malts, firm bitter finish. Very tasty.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Draught (6.5%) @ Lambic Foeder. Rated on 25.06.2015
Aroma has grainy malt, fruity hops and peaches. Feels like a fruity IPA. Flavour has fruity hops, some caramel, grass, minerals and mild grainy tones. Also grassy hops and mild menthol. Rather rich for this ABV.
