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.

MartinT (7746) - 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.

bhensonb (10803) - 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 (1864) - 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 (5967) - 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 (3220) - 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 (309) - 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.

nasmith003 (48) - Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Slightly sour apricot aroma with a pale golden color. Sour taste with some malty backbone. Hop snap at the end.

ajax25g (59) - Washington DC, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2013
22oz bottle. Really great hop character on this one, with floral notes combined with stone fruits (lots of peach). Also flavors of honey and coconut. Really nice.

nimbleprop (4621) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 14, 2013
22oz bottle pours orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is minty, a little buttery, apricot, soap. Flavor is interesting, herbal, minty, soap, a little white bread, white pepper. Peppery finish. Odd.

22oz bottle. Poured a hazy amber yellow-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is light, sweet spice notes with some pineapple notes. Flavor was spice notes, orange notes.
