4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It’s essential to let this beer warm a bit. The aroma is mostly clove, wheat and hints of banana. The flavor is dominated by the yeast... in a mostly enjoyable way. Lots of spicey funk and a bit of citrus bitterness. The wheat also comes through in the flavor though more for mouthfeel and body.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together on facebook chat. This pours with a white gold color and is hazy. A white head is maybe one finger. Aroma is fruit and it is complex and is difficult to put a finger on. The flavor brings fruit. Eventually it becomes more tropical. It never was citrus. Yeast is what one finds in a saison. Bitterness is quite moderate. Some banana and coriander notes. This was unique and interesting. It was also easy to drink and tasty. It will not be amongst the great IPAs of our day but is still a fun beer to drink.

My favorite newb in the SN mixer. I was underwhelmed by the black ipa...it was good, but they’ve made 2 better in the same style. Nooner kinda sucked. This one is pretty solid...not GREAT, but more along the lines of what I expected from them all. Citrus and coriander. Better hopping than the black ipa and a little more lively

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smoky coriander, lemon zest nose. Hazy amber, enormous lacy head. Coriander and grass flavor. Very light body, moderate carbonation. Hoppy wit, but doesn’t rise to IPA levels, IMO. The hops chosen seem wrong too. I like this style, but not this example so much.

bottle - This hazy brew smells of yeast and some herbal hops. The taste is moderately bitter with citrus and wheat character. It’s light to medium bodied, easy to drink, and overall an okay beer but nothing special.

12oz bottle, 4-Way IPA Variety Pack. Cloudy yellow color. Aroma of fruity yeast esters, tropical fruit. Bread-like flavor. Lemon finish with mild hop bitterness. It’s a well made beer. Still not a top style imo. (4153)

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 170814. Strong tropical fruit aroma with peaches dominating. Strong head of white foam that hangs around. Well carbonated with a vibrant gold colour. Thick in the mouth with great flavour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is a bit of orange peel with grain undertones. Flavor is somewhat fruity with some bitterness. Light bodied and drinkable. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy pale orange with an inch of white head. Wit-like aroma of oranges, coriander, vanilla with a lick of grapefruit and peach. A little thin. Sweet with a bit of a citrusy wheaty tang, some coriander and pepper. Heightened zestiness is really all that distinguishes it from a Wit until a moderate whack of bitterness at the end that seems just a little disjointed. Pretty good.

It’s a wheat beer. I don’t normally dig that, but they made it workable for me. still has that funky smell, but i think all wheat beer could benefit from a little more hops. I dig it. not too bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into my ipa glas, pours a hazy golden color with a thick fluffy white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of freshly cut grass, coriander, wheat, Belgian yeast, and pine. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a light lingering hop bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy with good carbonation and a dry finish. This is my favorite beer out of the 4 way ipa pack. Also one of my favorite white Ipa’s. Nice balance. Good mouthfeel and light and refreshing for an ipa.
