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.

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.

BeerandBlues2 (10099) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a huge, frothy and pillowy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is passion fruit, mango and lemon zest tropical hops, light grapefruit notes, pale biscuit and cracker malt with pepper notes and earthy, woody yeast characteristics. Flavor is moderate tropical hops of mango and passion fruit, medium-high bitterness that plays well with the spices and accentuates the dryness, light crisp malt, earthy yeast and a dry finish. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Unique IPA. This is hoppy, spicy, citrusy.Complex range of flavours. Good drinkability, but it needs two. Worth seeking out.

MartinT (8135) - 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.
