4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best white IPAs Iíve tried. A bit lighter flavor perfect for warm summer days with a more than respectible hop character and bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint at Cedar Creek. Pours very cloudy yellow with a bubbly white head. Aroma is extra lemony with evergeen and some grapefruit. Itís 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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 thatís pretty easy to screw up.
