Hazy, golden yellow with a giant white head. A little hops but not as much as I thought. No bitterness though, very smooth. Great hop aroma. Bottle 2 from Victoria. 071612

Looks supreme with a royal fluffy crown. Smells of a peppered saison, tastes like a lemony, piney wit. I appreciate the craft of this beer but itís just not my bag.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solid white IPA. Tastes like a blend of a Belgian wit and a Belgian saison, plus lots of hops. Very spicy, bright, citrusy (lemon esters mostly) and refreshing. Slightly earthy (yeasty), tea-like and wheaty. Slight cookie dough sweetness. Lots of white pepper. Healthy amount of hop bitterness provides a lingering bitterness, which blends with some pepper and alcohol warmth in the aftertaste. I believe this is one of the boldest and hoppiest white IPAs Iíve had yet.

650 ml bottle. Pours a slightly murky yellow/brown,and medium persistent head. Yeasty aroma with a hint of lemon and spice. Similar taste with a bit more pronounce lemon. Acidic and bitter finish, perhaps a bit strong for this style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber given to me by a friend. Pours an extremely heady cloudy yellow, with an as mentioned very active and bubbly white head, that leaves behind clouds of lacing not unlike Super Mario Bros. Smells like Belgian yeast, and quite sweet. Tastes quite sweet and bitter and very much like Belgian yeast again. Very light and refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Opaque orange,small white head.Light spicy yeast nose.Tart spicy yeast fore/mid,long bitter hop end which does not fit with this style. Taste is more like wormwood than hops.
Not a great example of an emerging style, try Deschutes Chainbreaker instead !!

Yeasty aroma with coriander, citrus, grass. Body is very Belgian white - replicating the nose with a little bit of citrus hop. This is quite nice, as the belgian flavors fade a lingering bitter yeasty aftertaste emerges.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2012 650ml bottle. Aroma of green hops, tropical fruit, yeast, coriander. Pours a foggy light yellow with decent amount of foamy off-white head. Great mix of sweet and bitter; an IPA/wheat beer hybrid with a long, interesting dry hop finish. New, exciting, refreshing. This beer is right on target.

22 oz. bottle, pours an opaque cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head. Nose is very Belgian, more like a Tripel or a very dry Belgian Ale, with lots of yeast, coriander, citrus peel, some banana and clove - some citrus hops. Flavour is quite dry and yeasty, like a Belgian Ale, with champagne yeast, very dry citrus peel, Belgian spices, and some feint banana - finishes spicy and dry hoppy. High carbonation, very dry all around, yeasty, spicy and bitter. Surprisingly delicious.
