2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pale, hazy straw color with a finger of bubbly off-white head. Sticky bits of lacing. Nose is sweet and hoppy. Light citrus and somewhat piney. Crisp, almost shockingly so. A bit of lemon zest, herbals, florals, and the yeast is a bit prickly. Lingering finish is dirty florals and musty malts before getting a tad soapy. Mellows out a bit towards the end of the glass, but I really didn’t get much satisfaction here.

Can with Moose after cave exploring. Light, easy drinking IPA with some good bitterness. Refreshing, which isn’t always the case with IPAs.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden pour big white head. Aroma of citrus, maybe some tropical fruit, lightly spiced. Taste is not really "white" but there is a little corriander, mostly hoppy and light. Pretty good beer actually!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 12oz bottle into Eku 28 Pils type glass. Pours yellow straw with big head. Aroma of lemon merengue pie, fresh sour dough bread and light white pepper. Med carb and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of grapefruit rind, white pepper, grassy hops, bitter roots. Overall bold in flavors and more bitter than the look or aroma would suggest.

12oz bottle. Not sure about the whole white IPA style in general but I suppose this is a good attempt. Very drinkable though not all that memorable.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is the first IPA I have purchased. I enjoy craft beers in small quantities. I often crave the unique and original characteristics of these liquid arts. This is one of my favorites. It is bold in flavor and nose but light on the pallet. I often enjoy fat tire and it is the flavor I like most but find it too filling. This has many of the same flavor notes but I don’t feel like I have eaten a full meal after 3 bottles. I enjoy this very much but I see where many would not.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw hue with a thick rocky/foamy head. The aroma smells like IPA candy, if such a thing existed; sweet lemon rind and bitter pine/floral resins, mix with a sugary wheaty sweetness on the nose. The flavor kinda tastes earthy with a wheat/rye bread dough chewiness, a bit of lemon zest, and a little grassy hops before a little dry toffee finish. Not too bitter, but hoppy throughout. Simple, but complex.
