Pretty solid white IPA. Almost wheat like with the coriander and clementine. Sweet, bready, malty with a touch of hop bitterness. Decent stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Thirsty Moose. Pours o gold color with thick white head. Citrus and floral aromas. Fruit up front quickly taken over by intense grapefruit hop flavor that changes to a piney aftertaste. Not my favorite style but enjoyable. I did like the fact that there was a lot of flavor without a high abv.

Holy jesus this is so good. I’m sometimes skeptical about white ipa’s because they don’t really highlight the hops but this one is just in your face good. Aroma is initially sweet and bready from the belgian yeast. Then the hops start coming through as it warms up. A killer balancing act happens. Tastes like freedom. Big sweetness from the belgian yeast then a nice dry bitter finish from the hops. It’s so balanced and that’s what sets it apart. Everything plays off each other. Plus it’s just filthy in the glass with floating hop sediment, it’s awesome.

Draft. Murky orange-gold with small white head. Tons of citrus and spice. Bitterness lingers. Decent IPA but nothing particularly worth seeking out here.

Pours a hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter citrus, corriander, spices, orange juice. Taste follows, cross between a wit and an ipa, very interesting in a good way.

Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. Hazy yellow orange pour with a lasting white head. Lots of citrus and orange blossom notes in the nose. Spice and citrus on the palate, almost reminding me of a Wit with orange and lemon slices it in. Lingering citrus and floral bitterness. Light to medium body. A nice effort.

Transfer from BA review on 4-17-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a super hazy golden orange color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is massive of a yeasty and grassy smell, giving it a very Belgian like aroma. Mixed with the yeast and grass, are lots of spice smells of coriander and clove along with some more hay like and orange citrus smells. Some other light aromas of a musty smell are there as well, but these actually are quite nice with the grass, hay, and yeast, and end up producing a rather crisp Belgian white smell overall. Taste – The taste begins with a lighter fruit flavor of a citrus nature mixed with lots of yeasty and spice tastes of coriander, and clove. Some grassy and grapefruit hop flavors are present from the start adding a nice bite of hop to the taste. As the taste advances, the sweeter citrus (which is largely of a tangerine nature) begins to fade with some other flavors of a more grainy and hay flavor replacing them. A light lemongrass flavor also comes to the tongue during this time and is accompanied by some flavors of herbal hop nature, mixing with the flavors that are left to produce a rather crisp, yeasty, and nicely spiced hop flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average, to maybe just thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both are great for creating a crisp feel, which matches the blend of moderate hop, citrus, and yeasty spice, producing a rather refreshing feel overall. Overall – A rather refreshing and crisp Belgian IPA. This will be a nice summer style brew to sip at a BBQ.
