Awktoberfest (384) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Kind I weird. Definite clove. Like a hoppy hefe or something. Maybe a little tweaking would be good on this for me. But my two pals loved it. I just didn't find the flavor pairing to work with me. But you will have that. Go pRose! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Green Door Tavern, 6/26/15
It pours a whitish golden color with a white head. The aroma is fruity, with a bit of wheat, spice, and a little grass. Tastes similar, though a hint thin from a flavor perspective. Decent.

ARH (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2015
On tap, poured into a pint glass. The aroma is a mellow, soapy lemon with a subtle grassy and floral character developing late before settling on a bread note. The beer is a pale straw color and hazy with a dense white froth that has alright lace and retain. The taste is medium sweet and slightly less than medium bitter. The texture is creamy with a soft fizz carbonation. The medium light body consists of lemon and toast flavors with a bitter herb to it. The zippy finish has a spice to it; itís short and quick and crisp with a refreshing, clean grass and light lemon aftertaste

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2015
Tap at Penrose. They were shaving/peeling oranges for the next batch as I drank. Hazy yellow-unfiltered body. Massive foamy white head. Creamy and yeasty, this is what I want in a White IPA. The citrus hops donít smash you over the head, but are present. The yeastiness makes this, great body. Pretty solid offering, sublime, rather excellent.

drdisque (756) - Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2015
Taster from old oak tap. Pure but light bodied and crisp hop. Strong but not overwhelming. Light body. No malt character. A bit dry. Not bad but kinda boring and not really a style Iím into anyway.

arminjewell (9256) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of pine, grass, slight white fruit, hints of biscuit into a bit of spice. Taste was a mix of orange, grass, some biscuit into a bit of pine, slight white fruits, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.

AWISLguy (2535) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle from Antioch. Golden yellow pour, more like old gold with a white head leaving white lace. Aroma has lemon and tangy yeast, taste follows, lemon rind. light . More a wit than an IPA 12.9

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2015
On tap at the brewery, dispensed to a house snifter/tulip showing a slightly hazed, golden color, with a persistent, froth & bubbles, soft white head, and decorative cling to the ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was lightly dank, light yeast, spice, some perfumey/ floral hints, subtle spruce? and esters as grapefruit & orange. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was slightly dry, included a pronounced, citrus & rind hop bitterness, and added a tart, tannic astringency that resulted in a slightly abrasive finish that was otherwise, crisp & clean.

Cloudy yellow pour with white head at jake Melnicks. Spicy lemon aroma. Lemon drop and hoppy flavor. Bitter. Good shizz
