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.

Pint glass draft at Tryst Delray Beach. Cloudy light colored gold with one finger white head. Farmhouse aroma of fruits, hay, slight sour funk, and vanilla. Taste is similar with funk, fruit, slight Brett, and cereal. Spices on the finish. Little peppery heat also on the back end. Medium carb. Liked it!

TheBeerGod (5263) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle. Translucent golden amber with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is woody with spice notes, herbal notes, lemon, yeast and fruit. Taste is woody with assertive yeast, toasted malt, spices, citrus notes, herbal hops, light earthiness and floral hops. Soft grassiness too. Body is medium with a moderate, lively carbonation feel. Lingering hop bitterness and a touch of warmth, which was surprising. More wood during the finish with toasted grains, soft malt, spice, floral hops, earthy notes, yeast and herbal hops.

Dorwart (2377) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Great big bright white head of fine bubbles with excellent carbonation. Light and flowery aroma with some mint, juniper, lavendar, herbal hops and some yeast. Very interesting aroma the lies I have not experienced before. Color is a clear golden orange. Flavor is very floral like the aroma with pears, more lavendar, soft malts, a bit spicy pepper and honeysuckle. Very floral in many ways. Finish is again floral with a bit of lingering dryness. A very good but different take on the IPA.

rajendra82 (953) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Pale golden appearance was appreciated, and the head was a bit small for an IPA or a Saison, but was quite durable. The aroma was heavily on the Belgian side of the mix, and was full of hay, horse blanket, and other farmhouse funk. The taste had a nice bubble gum start, followed by a floral flourish, and an earthy finish. Touch of tartness in the aftertaste. Not quite as funky as a true Saison, but close. Unfortunately the IPA side of the equation felt neglected, as hops were far from aggressive. The medium thick feel was just right for an IPA or a Saison, and the alcohol was hidden under complexity. Nice brew, but I just kept wishing for more hops.

Ed5388 (2116) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a hazy light orange color with a thin foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruit, candied sugar, funk, and spices. Taste is fruity, with notes of cedar, grassy hops, spices, and citrus skins. Kind of odd. Wasn’t a huge fan of this one.

Cybercat (3341) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pours a hazy solar yellow with a very thick yellowish buff head. Hoppy aroma has strong notes of yeast and - must be that white peppercorn. Typical IPA flavor hosts firm citrus, woody, yeast and pepper. Very distinctive. Texture is none too thick, but quite lively and fizzy. Yes sirree, Mr. Krunkles has earned his PhD.

rbrazell (1675) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle from New Leaf. Unclear light amber pour with a fluffy white head. White wine aroma, wood, yeast spice with a touch of funk. Light sweet malt entry fading into phenolic yeast spice, wood, white wine ending with a herbal spicy hop character. Medium bodied, nice carbonation and light alcohol. Not bad.

Butters (3778) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Clear golden pour with good layer of white head. Smells floral and perfumy Almost a touch of peach or kumquats? Flavor has white pepper spiciness with soap and mikan notes. bitter orange pith finish. Not extremely hoppy, but well balanced. This is actually enjoyable, but not something I feel the need to have again.

Gachupines (903) - USA - OCT 3, 2013
Cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is lemon peel and herbs with some light floral hops. Flavor is hoppy with a bit of bright lemon aftertaste. Finish is fairly clean, reminiscent of a wit. Well spiced throughout, a little peppery. Wife: 3.7
