3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA rated on 2-1-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a very thick and hazy light orange color. The particulates keep light from penetrating. Has the look of a pulp laden orange juice, but only with a lighter orange-yellow color. When poured it had a billowy white head, which faded over time, to give a fair amount of lacing; leaves a fine film on the top of the brew.
Smell – The nose is heavy of lemon and orange up front. A nice citrus hop aroma blended in with a very light wheaty and yeasty like aroma. The smallest amount of pine hoppiness is persistent throughout, but very low in comparison to the others.
Taste – The taste is much of a Belgian wit although there is more bitter and sour citrus mixed in with some wheaty maltiness as the backbone. The hoppiness of the aroma is stronger than it is in the taste, leaving some disappointment in “IPA” portion o f the brew. Some pine hoppiness does come in toward the end along with some coriander.
Mouthfeel – Creamier then comparable IPA of similar strength, with slightly lower carbonation level. Overall it does have a gives comfortable and soothing feel on the tongue.
Overall – An interesting beer, although I think too much Belgian wit and not enough IPA. A bit more spicy and piney hoppiness and a little less lemon would be more for me.

Bottle - A white IPA with spices but I don't taste the spices I normally would on a Belgium white. Unfiltered beer so there is a lot if sentiment. Can't tell if this is from the yeast or the slices, could be a combination of the two. More of a hops flavor than I was expecting, citrus notes on the pallet.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Contrary to most others reviews I read, I don't really like this beer. Looks like a conventional wit (great) but does not have the sweetness, and misses the body of a true IPA. It's drinkable just a strange halfway house of a beer.

Bottle pour. Hazy peach color. Large perfume of apricots, lemon and cloves. Sweetish smelling, almost. Taste fruity, with some citrus hop bitterness and very distant spice. Like others from this brewery, high carbonation. A bit too sweet for my liking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great blend of the sweet refreshing white ale with the full bodied hoppiness of an IPA. So many IPA’s are so hoppy that thet are difficult to drink. The wheat malt really soften it.medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, medium body, soft carbonation, pale, hazy, white foam,

Really pale golden pour, small white head.

Decent IPA with a twist.

Ipa veramente gustosa, con una luppolatura intensa e agrumata, con note di lievito e una percepibile sfumatura citrica. Ottima.
