3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Slightly hazy pale yellow with a large fluffy white head that lingers and leaves patchy lace. Nose of citrus, pine, tea and light honey with some yeasty notes. Very light sweet start with light bitter middle and light pepper throughout. Mouth is medium light with soft carbonation and a dry finish. Flavour doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the nose. This nose leans towards an IPA and the taste more on the wit side.

Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy yellow with a puffy white head and a lot of nice lace. Great aroma of tropical fruit, orange candy, tea and a bit of pine. Flavour is quite sweet up front, with juicy tropical fruit cocktail and lemon drop notes. Starts to dry out in the middle with a wheaty tang, and citrus peel in the long finish that increases in bitterness as the beer warms. Excellent!

650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a lightly cloudy yellow with decent-sized white head. Aroma is candied sugar, grains, citric hops and some other fruitiness. Flavour is fruity, yeasty esters, citrusy hops, candy sugar and some graininess. Mellow bitterness in finish. Solid.

Hazy yellow pour, with a huge white head. Aroma of herbs, tea, and green, herbacious citrusy hops. Light mouth feel, good carb. Medium bitterness with more herbs, and subtle tartness with some greeen leagy hops. Quenching and crisp with a clean finish, nice beer.

Cloudy. Wheat ale. A few hops. Not as bitter as I was expecting from an ipa. But this just feels wrong. Leave a wheat beer a wheat beer and don't try to change it. Not very tasty.

There is a strong citrus flavor. The color is light golden with a clear appearance. The head is frothy. The taste is light bitter, This beer is medium bodied with a slick texture, the carbonation is soft. The finish is long. Overall, this is quite a good beer white ipas are almost always solid. Good job phillips !

ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Hazy straw color with medium, tan head. Aromas of yeast, wheat, a bit funky, accompanied with strong citrus hoppy notes. Tastes citrusy but bit softer than in aroma, clovy, banana, funky plus wheat. Nice delicate clovy - bitter aftertaste. A bit boozy. Medium to high carbonation, low to medium body. Overall very good, very drinkable and very refreshing wheat IPA! I am not a big fan of wheat beers, but this one really hits my taste - this means something. I like the underlying hoppy notes mixed with that funky yeast.
PL: Butelka 650ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa delikatnie zmącona, słomkowa ze średnią, jasną pianą. Aromaty drożdżowe, dzikusy, pszenica, mocne cytrusy. W smaku cytrusy nieco słabsze niż w aromacie, goździki, banany, dzikuski, pszenica. Przyjemny, goździkowo-goryczkowy posmak. Nieco musujące. Średnie do wysokiego nasycenie, niskie do średniego odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując bardzo dobre, bardzo pijalne, bardzo orzeźwiające pszeniczne IPA! Osobiście nie przepadam za piwami pszenicznymi, natomiast to wyjątkowo mi posmakowało, a to o czymś świadczy. Bardzo podoba mi się ten chmiel wychodzący spod dzikich smaków drożdżowych.
