Bottle brought to my christmas party (thanks!). A light yellow pour. Very effervescent (a little too much). Refreshing flavors. Light hops, citrus--orange mostly. A little light body, but quite drinkable.

Ghost rider drank fairly easily. Like most IPAs, however, it did leave a bit of an aftertaste that was pretty tasty.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
When in Utah, buy Wasatch. Awesome label, as always, Wasatch. The pour, a lightly hazy pale lemon, rocky white head and good lacing. The aroma? Heavy malt, wheat and lemony dough. Tipped the glass to a mouthful of lemon flavored corn chips. Salty, doughy and uncomfortably like I would need a beer to wash away the thirst created by the snack food I was imbibing. The palate was nice, light, dry and the carbonation perfect, but the finish was just too long considering the aftertaste was still heavily "Fritos". I would blame this on the freshness, but I purchased the bottle at a Wasatch store in SLC. Can’t blame the beer....

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly murky light golden color with a thick white head. Sediment slowly falls and gathers at the bottom. Aroma is of hops, pine, some fig, citrus zest and soap. Very carbonated mouth feel. Flavor is of pine, grass, earthy/hoppyness with a dry bite. Leaves a slightly off balanced hop finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Has a head but not very long-lasting. Aromas are grapfruit, citrus, some malts. Hazy to golden colour. Taste is ipa’ish but a strongly pronounces citrussy/grapefruit element. Not much wheat. Overall an interesting and refreshing brew, though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Clover, citrus, coriander, spices.
A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Clover, coriander, slightly bitter, citrus.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, spiced finish.
O- Held on to this a little too long. Had almost a year of age on it which didn’t really help. As far as I could tell this was a total Belgian White and had virtually no resemblance to an IPA, even a White IPA. Not a bad beer overall.
