3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottle is so freaking awesome its awesome!!!! A unicorn in space surrounded by green lightning!!! COME ON THIS IS AWESOME!!! Light gold body with a rocky white cap floating on top. I’ll be honest never really had a white IPA before......... I like it better then the black. Very floral aroma, lemon, almost a vanilla, hibiscus..... I could smell this all day. Taste is crisp light and refreshing. Strong hibiscus, lemon, good strong yeast almost banana but not. Reading other reviews it seems I’m the only one who digs this beer, I guess I’m the only awesome person here. The beer has a dry tartness that I can’t get enough of.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased this in Ladysmith in the craft beers section. Aroma is pleasant with strong hints of Orange and citrus. Not your typical IPA, but it still falls in the general realm of an IPA. Outstanding aftertaste with evident spices. A solid amount of hops and a distinct orange peel flavor and aroma make this an exceptional IPA. Would highly recommend.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught) Samples at the Moon Under Water Brewpub in Victoria; guest tap. Decent banana nose. Very little yeastiness for a wit. Great colour and body. Not worth driving out of your way for.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
J’ai bu une bouteille 650ml mais je me sens comme j’ai bu deux bières completement differentes. D’abord, j’ai versé la moitié de la bière dans une verre. La première verre avait une petite mousse blanche et était très pale. L’arôme a ressemblé jus de pomme. Le goût était un peu d’houblon et peut-être du zeste d’orange. Quand j’ai versé la reste il a ressemblé un mimossa. Jaune foncé, même orange, avec une petite mousse. L’arôme d’orange et de coriandre. Très fruitée, un peu bizzare pour une bière. Si je l’aurai goûter sans savoir que c’était une bièrre j’aurai peut-être de difficulté lui reconnaître comme une. Si je vais la boire de nouveau je la laisserai réposer sur son coté!

Disappointed in the mislabeled bottle though I’ve always like the labels, ipa does not belong white or not. On another note I do enjoy the lace that sticks around, the flavour and taste of orange yeasty coriander sweetness also didn’t disappoint me.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy golden straw color with a white head. Smells of wheat and coriander. Would really like this to be a lot more hoppy for a wipa. Kinda disappointed overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Very hazy pale gold body with a thick white crown. Looks appealing! Aroma is extremely spicy in the Belgian wit department-- tons of coriander, a little sage even. Lively mouthfeel, very estery, again with a big spice hit. Quite yeasty. This is more like an imperialized wit than it is an IPA. They missed the mark on what my pre-conceived notion of the style should be (but I’m no authority), but somehow still made a tasty and flavourful brew. Nice accident!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy straw with frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeast, lemon, wheat. Medium to full bodied with a creamy mouth feel. The carbonation comes in a touch too high. Flavours of wheat, bubble gum, yeast, coriander. Finish is non-existent. There is no trace of IPA in this white ale. Though, it’s not a bad beer - quite sessionable.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a cloudy gold with minimal head turning to a slight lacing. Scent is over-stewed hops, I am sorry to say. Citrus and steamed greens. Odd. Taste echoes the aroma, but I am happy to say that it goes from steamed greens to very nice hops and oranges, balanced with a decent sweet malt with a bit of coriander in the finish. Medium mouthfeel, somewhat oily like a Belgian that has been lightly watered, creamy carbonation. Lingering hoppy finish. I had never tried a white IPA before, so this has been a new experience. I can’t say that the aroma is all that appealing, but the flavour does make up for it.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Single bottle purchased from Willow Park Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB on 09/22/2012. Colour: Morning urine yellow (so for the description choice) with thick foamy medium-high head. Nose: Immediate blast of dirty dish towel. Spring earthy notes for the hops. Wet white dough. A pinch of pepper. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Again pepper but without the spice. Some noticeable astringency mid-palate. Coriander finally appears but can’t find the orange peel. Very un-balanced and the hops do not mesh well at all.
