4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. light gold and hazy with a medium sized, fizzy white head. Hop aroma is noble and grassy with a touch of lemon. Taste is mildly sweet with bitter finish. Clean finish. Mouthfeel is both smooth and crisp. Texture is light for an IPA. Overall impression is perfect for its name. It’s snowy. This IPA does not hit you over the head with hops and leave you disoriented and dazed. It satisfies the same impulse that makes us want ice cream when it cold. It doesn’t make sense until you do it. A really beautiful IPA. The hops are where they should be...in the aroma and not in the taste-bud destroying bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light golden body. Frothy, white head, lasting. Aroma of resin, raw grain, citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light nose for an IPA, especially a white IPA that one would expect more citrus and more spice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a soft pale white with two fingers of rocky white head. Nose is soft and fruity with some floral and spicy character showing. Very lean and dry in the flavor with the spice and bitterness being accentuated. Has a weird ’poultry’ character in the flavor. Not too sure what I think about this.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a pale straw color (looks like Miller Lite), thin white head with okay retention and lacing. Nose is grainy malts, some floral hops, wet cardboard, piss. Mouth is medium bodied up front, then gets watery, grass, some grapefruit, bread with bitterness throughput. Sadly, this is about what I’ve come to expect from NB beers: average.
