3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a very hazy light orange. Aroma is Belgian yeast, slight funk with light citrus and peppery notes.Taste is more Belgian wit than IPA, with peppery yeast and citrus. Palate is medium body, carbonation is well done. Pretty good, not much of an IPA. Some slight bitterness comes thru

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 fl oz bottle sample via Piscator34. Pours a hazy yellow (definitely some yeast sediment in the pour) with a thick white head. Assertive aromas of pepper, pineapple and some phenolic notes. Tastes are a little resin, spice, and somewhat metallic. Chalky with a slightly metallic finish. I may have waited a little too long to try this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very hazy golden color. The white head is huge, puffy, and even extends over the rim of the glass. Retention isnít superb, and thatís actually good in this case. Some streaks of lacing are left behind.
S: At first, itís shockingly low on hoppiness. Yeah, I get lots of clove, coriander, black pepper, and lemon peel, but not much in the way of hops. Actually, it seems like the hops here accentuate and meld with the lemony, herbaceous notes, rather than sock the olfactory senses with tons of pine and grapefruit. Itís not much of a proper white IPA, but itís a damn good witbier.
T: It opens quite bitterly, with a healthy herbal bitterness. This quickly turns into a subtle fruitiness in the middle. It closes with a gentle wheat flavor. Just like with the nose: itís a damn nice wit, but really isnít much of an IPA - white or otherwise. The hops arenít the star of the show (like they should be in this style), they just mesh some of the more bitter flavors well.
M: Mmmmm. This one is so dry, just the way I like it. Itís rather full bodied, which means itís not particularly effortless - that just means itís not watery. Well carbonated, but not ridiculously so.
O: I like this one. It doesnít really bring the hops that amazingly, so I canít give it a great score. But it is a refreshing and easy to drink spring-time treat with a bit more welcome bitterness than normal.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Herbal, weirdly spicy, and a touch too bitter, but there are some nice citrusy notes and the nose is fairly pleasant despite the beer not being quite as good on the palate.
