3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy straw gold pour with a 1 finger, fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is toast, citrus, a little tart stone fruit and the signature New Belgium weird grainy malt notes that I can never quite identify. Flavor is sweet malt and toast up front, grass, sweet grapefruit, acidic hop bite and New Belgium toasty grainy notes. Light body with a dry feel throughout, has a medium, blanketing and sharp carbonation and somewhat astringent finish with that snappy, sharp acidic hoppy bite that is pretty intriguing. Good overall, but not much going on.

(12oz bottle) clear gold, soapy white bubbles. Nose of funk, fairly hoppy, spices, orange peel, Amarillo, and coriander. Taste of light wheat, coriander, moderate alpha acid, easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
À savourer avant le 29 mars 2015. Blonde pâle assez voilée avec une tête blanche qui montre son attachement. Nez de blé épicé avec aiguilles de pin et herbes de l’Océanie. Goût citronné et autrement fruité. Profil herbacé plus intéressant. Épices, blé et beaucoup de conifères. Petite douceur. Bouche bien vivante. Corps huileux. Finale bien amère comme un citron vert bien fraîs. Une bière bien correcte.

Poured from a 12. Appearance is that of soapy dishwater...but the Aroma and flavor are of a pretty decent IPA. Has a bit of sweetness to it with hints of grass clippings.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Woodmans Waukesha. Pours yellow golden with a white head. Aroma has fruit, citrus and pine. Somewhat light taste is of sweet fruits, lemon, some pine. A touch of malt, but this is not malty brew. Light to medium bodied. Finishes sweet and somewhat bitter. A nice lighter fruity IPA 13.8

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from Beer Rev in Edmonton pours a pale straw color with a finger of white head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with light fruit and citrus. Taste is a earthy and citrus hop bitterness with a light fruity and grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with generous carbonation that tickles the tongue. A pretty solid IPA that needs to be checked out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow with a clingy light foam. Light hop scent. Body is lightly chalky. Flavour is hoppy with a light coating of wheat. A nice drinker. In that mold of mainstream craft otherwise known as solid beer.

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?
