COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Two Roads interpretation of this emerging beer style naturally takes a road less traveled. Unlike other versions, ours employs an American ale yeast and no spices. The result is a soft wheat backdrop that accentuates the Pacific Northwest hop character.

12oz can, canned 04/07/15. Thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Up front, my first imperession is honey and some butter. Think this may have some diacetyl action. Hazy golden, slight orange color. Ring of white head. Loose bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Kind of mildly spicy. Moderate bitter taste, kind of dry. Light to moderate sweet. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. OK white IPA, but it seems a bit off to me. Bit sweet, kind of rough spiciness.

12 oz can from Blipp shared with the group. Pours a hazy light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted wheat malts, mild sweet cereal, citrus, light herbal, some faded hop character, not great but drinkable.

Bottle at the Breens. Pours hazy wheat with off-white bubbly head. Nose is faint wheat, some lemon citrus and grassy notes. Dry wheaty flavor profile without the typical overdone coriander spice flavored you sometime get with the style. A little bland but perfectly fine ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The so-called “White IPA” is an emerging sub-style that hasn’t be completely defined by the zeitgeist just yet. Usually, I associate that term with a really hoppy witbier, but some breweries are making an otherwise traditional American IPA and throwing in a lot of wheat and calling it a White IPA. That’s definitely what Two Roads Honeyspot Road is. And as an IPA it’s a good beer; if you want witbier character – it’s not here, sorry.

I poured a 12oz can into a tulip glass. It was canned on 3/31/15 and cost $2 ($0.17 per ounce).

Appearance: Pale whitish/maize hue. Lots of sediment and particulates are visible (but not carbonation) despite the very cloudy body. Pours to an average size, white, foamy head that retains and laces fairly well.

Smell: Lovely American hop aroma; citrusy in nature (orange especially). No spices or yeast esters, though.

Taste: Since this beer is not brewed with spices nor with Belgian yeast, it’s better to approach it as an otherwise standard IPA with plenty of wheat. And viewing it as such (or, should I say – tasting it as such), it works well. Plenty of hop flavor and bitterness to match, though in no way aggressive or absurd. The wheat imparts a slight tartness or dry, cracker-like flavor to the body. Otherwise, not much in the way of malt distinctiveness or sweetness. Quite bitter from beginning to end, though it seems to become intensely dry on the finish. Some orange peel or spices would probably complement the citrusy hops perfectly. As it stands, this is a more-than-solid American IPA.

Drinkability: I’m so used to drinking huge beers I’ve kind of lost appreciation for 6% ABV IPAs like this one. There’s plenty of body to Two Roads Honeyspot Road White IPA. Not quite crisp and crackling, though far from tepid or velvety (there is a smoothness to the mouthfeel due to the wheat). The hops do linger on my tongue and leave a dry, pasty sensation. It’s refreshing for a moment, but I wouldn’t drink this as a liquid refresher. I could see it standing up to any casual dinner fare quite well, though.

Score: 8/10

Pours a light golden yellow color with a finger of white foam. Nose is wheat heavy with notes of citrus, pine and sawdust. Palate follows with crisp carbonation, solid hop forward flavors of lemon zest, bitter citrus and lingering wheat notes.

Murky golden pour with a white head.....aroma of citrus, melon.......taste is distinctive wheat spiciness, clean, crisp, slight bitterness, citrus on the back end. A fair effort.

thornecb (4789) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet jelly bean and yeast aromas. Sharp with marshmallow and hay upfront turning to mild earthy pith in the lasting finish.

Dobre IPA w amerykanskim stylu. Chmielnosc i ten grejfrutowy aromat jest bardzo wyrazisty i tresciwy. Malo trwala piana lecz dosc zadowalajaca, znaczaca swoja obecnosc na szklance. Jasno zlota barwa z niewielka metnoscia. Goryczkowe, bardzo ladnie pachnace, doskonale do objadu i bialego miesa
