COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The legendary hop-hunter Krunkles turns up yet again, back from a tour of the Orient. His goal this time is to get experimental; his unbounded travels have earned him an honorary doctorate (“Doctor of what?”, you may ask. This would be a question to which only Krunkles knows the answer…) and he’s sequestered himself in the lab perfecting a never-before-seen formula for his beloved IPA. Dr. Krunkles White Farmhouse IPA reaches new heights in complexity and flavor by combining the malt and spices of a Belgian Witbier, the yeast of a Farmhouse Ale, and the hoppy goodness of an American IPA. Dr. Krunkle’s twisted touch is a dash of white peppercorn followed by wood aging on white ash.

superspak (2605) - Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon zest, pear, apple, tangerine, pineapple, orange peel, coriander, clove, peppercorn, wheat, straw, herbal, grass, light oak, light bubblegum, and yeast funk/earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, spice, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, tangerine, pineapple, orange peel, pear, apple, wheat, coriander, clove, peppercorn, straw, herbal, grass, light oak, light bubblegum, and yeast funk/earthiness. Light wheat tartness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, tangerine, pineapple, pear, apple, coriander, clove, wheat, peppercorn, straw, herbal, grass, light oak, light bubblegum, and yeast funk/earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of hop, spice, and yeast ester flavors; with a crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice white IPA. All around good balance and complexity of hop, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

SpringsLicker (3133) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Hazy medium yellow with a generous fluffy white head. Belgian yeast aroma with some lemony tartness. The flavor is tart and lemony like a witbier, slightly sour and tart with some Belgian funk like a farmhouse ale and there may be some hop thing going on after all of that but it’s lost below the tartness.Interesting beer.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/16/13

Aroma: The nose is spice and yeast, tart notes, fruit, and a bit of hop as well
Appearance: Pours a really nice clear orange color with a clean, frothy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor leans toward the Belgiany side, yeasty, some spice, a bit tart, and lightly bitter
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel, and a tart/light dry finish
Overall Impression: Really nice looking beer, and pretty tasty too. I felt that Belgiany and farmhouse flavors were more dominant in this one than the IPA flavors were, but I liked it. Nice addition with the spice and oak aging as well.

crajun (960) - , Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2014
bomber from springslicker in trade. not an ipa bottle states white farmhouse ipa so a kinda saison ipa?? that is the best way to describe this - some fruit and yeast in aroma. taste is a comb of saison and ipa - different brew; drinkable.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Camomile, tansy, oak and pink grapefruit notes all explode from this brew’s dry and effervescent mouthfeel, drawing a perfumy profile onto delicately honeyed cereals.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mountain of foam is quickly reduced to a veil on top of the translucent gold.
-The nose and flavour profile are both evocative.
-The yeast character, hops and spicing are all very harmonious.
-The high level of intensity of all flavours decreases drinkability (despite the efforts of the dryness and forceful carbonation).
-This would be wonderful with baklavas.

Bottle.

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bomber from Knightly in Orlando, FL. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is lightly suggestive of sour peach. And fruity hop. Med body. Flavor has yeast spice - clove? - quite Belgian and quite fruity hoppy. Seems a bit complicated, but it’s a good drink.

MadRobin (1940) - Silver Spring, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Clear, golden amber with a large off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of lemon, grass, herbs and orange. Taste of bitter herbal hops, lemon, pale malt, pepper, yeast, pineapple and sage. The fruit, bitterness and malt alternate taking the lead in a complex interplay. Medium/light body and medium/high carbonation with an interesting mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blipp (6114) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Belgian characteristics dominate, with spicy yeasty notes, peachy and flowery notes, and just a hint of citric bitterness. A bit of a mess, but still enjoyable. Also, this is not an IPA.

MrChopin (3288) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2013
hazy gold, oily white ring. Heavy orange soda nose, srsly slice, singular and sweet. Heavily carbonated sugar bomb, lightly old with hints of cardboard oxidation. A heavy mouthed mess, too sweet and carbonated for ANY nuance.

kidobutai (366) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Great combination of fruit and is a bitterness. Apricot aroma makes this an iconic ipa. Smooth and creamy.
