3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma headed up with piney hops, some banana and apple fruitiness, honey and buttterscotch malts. Slighty minty, peppermint.
Toasted malts up front (similar to fat tire) in the flavor. Piney hops with spice backing (cinnamin, black pepper, mint). Finish is sweet and substantial.
Palate has a buttery texture. Some dryness that mellows in finish.

Pretty good beer. Ive never had a White IPA before this and it’s pretty much what I expected, smooth, tasty and easy to drink. I really enjoy the after taste, kind of citrus/pine/cream flavor.

well balanced ale. Aromas of spices, and long lasting flavour. Quite enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head. The aroma has toasted malt, happy floral notes. The taste has a light bitterness, a sweet malty finish. Odd.

From the bottle the aroma is a little hops, taste is sweet of the very front but the overall flavor is similar to an amber ale, finish is wheat and roasted finish

Backlog. From bottle in 2007. Aroma of flowery hops, with aromatic hops, caramel malts and some fruit and herbs retronasal. Flavor is light caramel malts, but hardly sweet. Medium bodied. Moderate bitter finish.

Light hop-based aroma. This beer is pretty light even though it is an IPA. Also very thin composition. Color is golden but more yellow than auburn. Zero head and almost no carbonation. Not the worst IPA but also not the best. Worth skipping this beer for another one of New Belgium's products.

Pours a bright orange with a lumpy foam head. Decent carbonation with a light malt aroma. Biscuity malt taste with light hops spice. Clean palate feel.
