You don’t need a magic mirror to see the lure of this beer. It’s brewed with seven varieties of experimental dwarf hops. These hops are so called because of their uncommon growing method—shorter hedgerows rather than tall trellis systems—that yields a denser heap of cones with unique flavors that diverge from their full-grown botanical counterparts. Each year new and different varieties are grown in this method, creating untried and exciting shifts in hop character.

Milky dark orange juice colored pour with a tall, chunky eggshell head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is very fruity, lots of sweet lemony citrus, melon, floral, a little tropical fruit, a little banana, bubblegum and tart berry. Flavor is very citrusy up front, lots of sweet orange, lemon and orange zest, a little spice, bubblegum, sweet malt, sweet wheat, and toward the finish lots of floral hop notes. Very fruity and perfumey. Medium body, creamy to chalky feel throughout, light carbonation and lightly dry finish. Not bad overall, one of the best "White IPAs" I have had, other than Anchorage Galaxy White, which is pretty much in a league of its own in the category as far as what I have tried.

Bottle. Hazy golden color with thick white head and substantial lacing. Earthy citrus and pine aroma with hint of lemon. Lemon citrus with some subtle earthy, piney notes in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coldbrewky (1535) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle via sampler pack. I’ve been sticking with SN due to the reasonable pricing of their products and have not been let down. Straight from bottle, three times in a row. A nice spicy nose. Gentle body ringed with gentle wheat and yeast tang. light undulation.. decent basement beer.

maxwelldeux (4219) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle. Very Belgian nose to this, as I get some banana and clove over top of some floral hoppiness. Taste is quite bitter and fairly dry, but just a very fresh crisp drink.

X (160) - California, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle. I thought that this was more of a Wit than an IPA. Taste was dominated by the Belgian yeasts, with some grapefruit hops as a finishing kicker. The palate was medium. Decent but not great.

Bottle to tumbler. Slightly hazy golden yellow. moderate white head with some lacing. Aroma is lemon, coriander, yeast , slight funk. Taste is white bread, mild citrus, baking spice, hop bitterness that is subdued for a SN IPA. Light mouthfeel. Nearly sessionable.

Aggiebob (449) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy straw gold with frothy white head and lacing. Floral aroma with spices and citrus flavorings. Light bitterness. Taste more like Belgian Ale then a IPA.

rollerton (192) - SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle from SB. An IPA with maybe a little too little taste. It is wasy to drink, but not one of my favourites.

BeerRenter76 (426) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a hazy light caramel amber with a half finger pure white head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of wheat, coriander, light citrus. Flavor is an interesting combination of wheat and coriander with light citrus and piney hops. Finishes with light lemon and grapefruit hops. Medium bodied with nice peppery carbonation. An off beat and tasty IPA/ witbier, enjoyable.

BOTTLE. Hazy yellow pour with thin white head.. Sticky honey & orange traits on the nose.. Lemon & other citrus flavour up front going into a subtle hoppy finish..
