COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
White Hops is a nod to Georgiaís forgotten brewing history, taking its name from a mysterious and controversial Atlanta malt beverage sold in 1898. No one knows what the original tasted like, so we used and our imaginations and a Belgian yeast strain to concoct a white IPA, brewed with wheat malt, Citra hops, spices and grapefruit peel. Aromatic and intense, this ale is for hop enthusiasts looking to surpass the ordinary.

12 ounce bottle, 6/16/14. Hazy pour with a thin fizzy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of wheat, floral notes, citrus and tropical hops, oatmeal. The taste is big citrus and tropical hops, wheat and a peppery finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation, slight lingering bitterness. A nice surprise from a brewery I hadnít heard of.

12 oz bottle. It pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. It has a wheat aroma but smells mostly of citrus & spicy hops. Itís very dry and has some wit like characteristics. . It has a strong grapefruit flavor. It is very refreshing and tastes very good. This is my second beer by this brewery and both were excellent. Iím glad I bought this and hope to drink it again in the future.

Skunked hoppy Belgian white nose. Hazy yellow pour no head. Coconut lime grapefruit on nose too. Coconut lime citrus bubblegum juicy fruit. Big carbonation. Lingering wheat. Meh. Rate beer every day!

Bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Cloudy dirty gold color, thin head cover, stripes of lace. This brew is Belgian Wit Bier wedded to an IPA. Taste begins with sweet malt thatís loaded with orange, lemon, and spices. It grows a little as it moves through the palate, then the citrus turns bitter, just enough to balance. The malt never gives in, though, reappearing for a sweet lingering finish. Interesting, tasty, recommended.

Hazy yellow pour with a medium-sized white head. The aroma is full of wheat with some hints of orange and peach coming through. The flavor is more of the same. I get some wheat and biscuit malt notes as well as some orange and light coriander character. Low bitterness. Medium carbonation and thin mouthfeel.

Draft. Nose is a citrus bomb with strong lemon dominating. Slightly tropical. Pour is a very hazy light yellow with large white head. Taste is a very pleasant marriage of citrus and floral notes. A medium mouthfeel but dries out nicely. Hop additions are very well done and donít dominate but live in balance with the yeast character a fruits. I quite enjoy this.

Have probably had this about 10 times but now getting around to rating it. Cloudy yellow to dark orange color. Nice belgian yeast aromas and flavors with lots of banana working. Fruity tropical aroma. Would put this more towards a belgian IPA than a whit but whatever. Finish is bitter and grassy. Nice for what it is and pretty sessionable.

Still has lost a bit of the hops, on tap at the rookery Macon GA, solid flavor though not dominated by either the hops or the wit characteristics little thin looking but tastes just fine.
