3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Whole Foods, P st, DC 22oz ($5): Pours a light orange with a tiny head. Aroma are American style hops, so kind of grapefruity, coupled with coriander. Taste has even more coriander in it. The hops mellow out in the taste, but they are still sort of the main thing going on in this beer. Body is very light, much lighter than most IPAs, which is, I suppose, a contribution from the white ale part. In any case, this is an interesting ale.
