COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ghostrider is built around a traditional American IPA with a twist. We use super pale malted barley and wheat to keep the color very light, white you might say! Load of citrusy American hops combined with a touch of coriander give this dry hopped IPA wonderful complexity in aroma and flavor. This is a highly drinkable beer.

Hazy "ghost" yellow pour with bit of frothy white head. Aroma of orange and conventional citrus. Taste is a very well balanced sweet and bitter tour with lemony notes and a spicy finish.The taste far exceeds the aroma of this beer in my opinion. Overall a very refreshing and enjoyable beer

A nice IPA. Pours a light yellow, cloudy, with a head that turns to light lace. Light hoppy aroma. God taste with a nice sharp hoppy taste, good citrus. Nice aftertaste, not too sharp. Great taste, glad I have another can. Not to be found in NC!

Pale golden. White head lasts the drink. Bitter aroma. Bitter taste with a fruity finish. Much better when it warms.

Looks like a typical wit, white lemony gold in color. Definite spicy coriander aroma. Citrus and spice in the flavor, with a nice assertive pine and mint hops note. The only knock i have against this is that it has a bit of a waxy mouthfeel. Overall, a decent brew...

commonmac (196) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle from Haskells. Light gold, very wheat beer like appearance. Citrus on the nose with some floral notes. Taste has some piney resin and a good deal of hops. Refreshing. Reminds me of some good Belgian white options. End completes the citrus ride with lemon, maybe light grapefruit. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Hazy unfiltered yellow color. White head. Hoppy aroma with some citrus. Start is strong with resin citrus. Middle is nice, but finish is strange. Slightly sour tang at the end. Interesting and unique, decent but finish is limiting.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Pint at Cedar Creek. Pours very cloudy yellow with a bubbly white head. Aroma is extra lemony with evergeen and some grapefruit. It’s a full bodied, almost sticky beer but is somehow refreshing. Not a ton of esters on this one, considering the style. Just some nice fruity undertones. There is a lot of doughy and wheaty flavor. Finish is bitter, lemony. Pretty nice beer.

AWISLguy (1048) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a very pale yellow with a white head. Aroma has citrus and light pine with some earthy-ness. Taste is of light sweet fruits, lemon zest, some spices and dry grain with some biscuity malts. Light bodied and quite dry. Finishes more bitter than anything else, although not strongly so. Slight sourness so perhaps bottle a bit old? Shrug? Not IPAish, more a wit mixed with something else, and not even for a "white" IPA.

rougeau13 (1863) - Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Hazy yellow with a large white frothy head and lots of lacing. Aroma a little mild, but full of citrus, with pine, coriander, and grain. The taste is full of coriander and citrus with some bitterness.

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
