I predict White IPA’s will be all the craze starting this year, and continuing into 2013. So far, with the few I have had, I am very pleased.

Good 1 inch head that does not fade. Hazy yellow color. Smells and tastes of grapefruit. Cant really taste the pine or apricot listed on the label. Not to hoppy. Soft after taste. Would drink more often.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of pine and grapefruit notes. Overall, the beer smells very fruity. The flavor is mainly made up of pineapple and other tropical fruit, with some wheat and a little bit of biscuit malt. I also get a light to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a just off white head. Fruity hoppy and spicy aroma. with peach and citric notes. The flavor has floral hops, light fruity notes, and light spicy notes. Pretty good.

Fairly balanced IPA. Very refreshing and it has a wonderful bite to it. Go Sam Adams.

bottle. soft nose of muddled yeast, wheat and hops, that’s about what it’s supposed to be, right? this is, it’s rather dull, quiet and neutral. creamy texture with a round and full body; again mild and neutral wheat, hops and yeast, a stew, basically, without any distinct flavors standing out or showing any dominance. the apricots are there, I guess. who knows. does it matter? no, just like everything else.

Bottle. Lemon citrus with some malty caramel. Finish is more lemon, a sticky sweetness (apricots?) and mild bitterness.

full of wheat so as to taste like a root vegetable with some sugary sweetness and a trace of butter. A nice grapefruit citrus hop adds dimension and improves the body which of course would seem light. Some fresh bright lemon and you have these three flavors bouncing around in your palate. A bit of fresh sharp pine in the suds? Not a bad thing!

It is like they were channelling their MH northern neighbors, only with a wheat expression. Another winner here for drinkability, and a bit of complexity. Not really to style in American terms, but still a fun beer to drink. The wheat/hops interplay is ncely done.
