4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/3/2014. Pours hazy/murky deep gold color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of bright grapefruit, lemon peel, tangerine, orange zest, coriander, clove, black pepper, herbal, grass, wheat, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus hops, fruity/spicy yeast, coriander, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of bright grapefruit, lemon peel, tangerine, orange zest, coriander, clove, black pepper, herbal, grass, wheat, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy spiciness/hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon peel, tangerine, orange zest, coriander, clove, black pepper, wheat, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of bright citrus hops, fruity/spicy yeast, coriander, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice white IPA! All around good balance and complexity of bright citrus hops, fruity/spicy yeast, coriander, and pale malt flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at Surf City, 6/28/14
Aroma: The nose of this one is citrus zest, wheat, and some spice
Appearance: The beer pours a hazed golden color with a smallish head
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, citrus/lemon and spice mostly, some what notes
Palate: the body is light-medium, it has an average-plus carbonation, and an okay feel
I thought this was an okay beer. Nothing more than that though. Just an okay beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Tropical fruit in there with the moderate clementine; coriander and maybe even a little gum. A wheat-like tartness as well. Appearance: Orange juice (with pulp) body with a foamy white head that settles into a rich bubbly skin. Looks just the way you’d expect. Flavor: Coriander quite strong up front; maybe even overpowers the clementine a bit. I even feel like some pine is here as well. Wheat more apparent and leaves a lingering light tartness. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter/tart finish. Overall: For me, a bit up and down. Kinda went in a lot of directions. Doesn’t feel complex as much as a little scattered.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a can has big foamy head, almost spilled over. Big bubbles in this head, head is not creamy whatsoever. Odd medium hop aroma. Tastes like a highly hopped hefe, wtf. Astringent as the session continues. Lots of chunks of junk pour into the brew fromthe bottom of thwe can. Hey, I like sediment but yikes holy mackerel, this stuff has big chunks of white globs, almost makes me not want to drink it. I guess I’m a sissy in that respect. Just got some in my mouth, pretty chewy. Pahtooie. Very unique ipa think here baby. Can’t think of anything I had that is like this. Yes its IPA but such a different turn on the typical style. Overall? Nasty Nellie. Yea, i really appreciate the look of this beer just wish it was more civilized on my taste buds.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours out a decently cloudy golden orange color with a big white head. Aroma is of fresh oranges, coriander (yuck) light citrus hops and some grainy notes. Taste is clean and is better than I want it to be. Fresh orange, citrus zest, coriander, light grainy notes. Not terrible.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours sclera golden yellow with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is strongly hoppy with a coriander note. Hoppy flavor is more woody than resiny, and has the coriander tone that the aroma promised. Texture is quite fizzy, if not too firm. A distinctive brew, and very enjoyable.
