3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, large bubbled, gradually collapsing, white hean with some foamy lacing, over a cloudy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is citrus peel (orange, grapefruit), coriander, light wheat cereal, hints of pine, resin.....taste is hints of citrus, honey sweetness, light citrus peel, wheat, finishing with a mild pine citrus peel bitterness....mouth feel very light of medium, carbonation makes a clean acid finish. This is a light refreshing take on an IPA, with the light citrus tones and clean acid finish dominating. Remember that water is refreshing. It is very similar to a Pinot Grigio in the Italian style, with the addition of hop bitterness. It is unbalanced, and hard to sort out how to make it better. Eliminate the spices? BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz into a 20oz jekyll and hyde club glass. Pours a cloudy straw haystack like yellow. Head is large, loose body, bubbly, and leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is very frontal orange spice, orange hop, and orange wheat, drinks like a hefe but with no banana. Hops are viable and frontal, jumping on the nose from the gun. Taste is orange, honey, citrus, hoppy, and more clean orange. Clean and lively carbination leaves a refreshing taste on the tounge, This is farily good, especially for a white ipa. As for the label, you cant judge a book by its cover.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy piss-yellow with a rapidly diminishing head. Big acidic citrus aromas, and some tangy yeast. A little bit of dank hops as well. Really nice flavor, more citrus with tons of orange. Quite sweet but with a piney American hop profile to the aftertaste along with wheat tang. Maybe a little much on the Wit spices though. Smooth drinking like a wheat beer. Overall this is a good example of a style that’s pretty easy to screw up.

Pours pale yellow, cloudy, with a small white head.
Aroma is lemon...citrus.
Taste is grapefruit/lemon peel...dry biscuit.
Very crisp and bright...like a hoppy Belgian White.
No sweetness...just a focused, sharp citrus.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head, aroma has a little bit of citrus and hops but has a nice crisp bread and biscuit touch too, flavor has a biscuit like front end with a little bit of the hops in the finish, not overly bitter by any means but really drinkable, really not all that bad at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. It looks like a wit but has a hoppy aroma like an IPA. The coriander spiciness was slightly odd. It had a medium bitterness in the finish. Interesting and decent overall.

Bottle. Cloudy pale gold with a bright white head.Sweet nose of dough and oranges. Almost like a pineapple upside down cake. The flavors mix well in a blending of grapefruit and almonds. Hints of grass are ever present. Tasty and refreshing. A well made beer.
