Pours a lemonade yellow. Thick, frothy head that leaves great lacing. Big citrusy aroma of a good IPA, and grassy wheaty malt backbone that balances out the hops. I like this offering from New Belgium.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Albertsons. Pale yellow gold, almost clear with no sediment, white head and lace. NIce lemon orange pastry aroma with hints of spice. Medium melon sweetness with very loong lingering bitter spiciness. Medium light body soft carbo. Not very good. Definitely contrived for people who are not knowledgeable or enthusiastic about white ipas. A filtered white beer? WTF?

A soflty hazed, sunny yellow body sits beneath a tight white head offering solid lace
Subtle, crisp malt profile allows bright fruity hop complexities to shine, gotta love some mosaic, medium-light body, approachable and enjoyable
12oz bottle at Johnny’s Shawnee

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a super clear yellow color with a medium white head. A nice citrus and wheat nose. Big rich sticky sweet hops, Amarillo shine, lots of pine and more grapefruit. Light bready grainy base. A big flavor punch in this one. Quite tasty. Mild to medium bitterness. Solid.

Not bad. This was a welcomed IPA. Smooth and hoppy. Decent alcohol. Smooth body and a nice sweet balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy and extremely light golden with a snow white head. Looks very much like a white ale. Aroma of citrus and pine. Beer is crisp in the mouth and flavor is slightly sweet and fruity. Maybe some grapefruit and tangerine. Not bad tasting, but a bit odd for a winter seasonal.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light orange colored pour with a thin white head. Aroma is very fresh and hoppy, lots of citrus. Nice body, crisp hop flavor up front. Mostly orange with some hints of grapefruit and apricot. Lingering grapefruit finish. Really clean and refreshing IPA, well balanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle pours a very light straw yellow color. With a white fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Very nice citrus aroma is dominated by lemon. Rather high carbonation level. Light bodied and smooth drinking with a nice amount of flavoring hops. Fresh tasting and very drinkable.

A very tasty interpretation of a white ipa. I was pretty impressed by their take on this ale. Hops notes are on point and will never let you down. Only real thing lacking is possible fermentation issues and color discrepancy.
