3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a large white head that slowly dissipates with decent lacing. Aroma is citric, coriander, yeast. Taste is about the same plus tangerine. Lightly sweet, medium bitter with a bitter finish that is a mix of hoppiness and orange peel.
"a style that I am really starting to enjoy, from two GREAT brewers. Should be good :) The aroma at first was actually a little strange. Fruitiness above hopiness, and not all coriander and orange. It opens up VERY nicely, has good body, and a dry yeasty hoppy finish. The wit characterisitics are really understated but add complexity to an already good ipa, and make this beer thoroughly refreshing. Glad I got two!" trappisttaste (11) - Satellite Bch, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2014

I mean, come on. You put these two breweries together and expect anything BUT awesomesauce? Yah right. This was fantastic. Super citrusy in the hop and bitter department, and the fruit esters of the Belgian yeast strain really come through (perhaps the Le Freak yeast?). Haven’t seen it in a while...hoping it pops up again! BrewBoxer (2667) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Draft at the growler NYC on stone street. Pours a bronze tan looking color with no head. Smell and taste like a very flavorful full bodies iPa. Very good ryanscourt (1567) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Not as good as I was hoping. A little bit boring. Compared to previous white ipa this falls well short in flavor. A little dry finish as well for me.

A pale gold beer so jacked up on hops you can’t tell its white. The aroma is mostly earthy but a little stinky from those gym clothes hops everyone is in live with. Forward bite with a bitter floral petal taste. Refreshing and medium body is in the lighter side. Any yeasty, sweet, white notes are an afterthought so this is a repeater.

Bottle, probably about a year or two ago, or whenever this first came out. Nose shows a good helping of Belgian yeast esters, some white pepper spiciness, lemongrass, and light citrus fruits. Flavor is similar- a bit heavy on the yeasty side (which is often the case with White ipa’s for me) with some light citrus and pepper notes. Solid, but the BA version really improved the overall balance of this base beer in my opinion and made for a more well rounded and enjoyable beer. dkrep (14) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Poured a nice white head and the color is light gold. Tastes great, hoppy flavor but not bitter. Good beer that I drank 6 weeks after I received it in a trade; looking back I wish I would have drank it that first night. Still good but fresh I bet this is awesome. drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - NOV 24, 2013
11/23/13. Big thanks to Brent for this gem! Lightly hazed deep golden pour with a big off-white head that won’t quit. Looks good. Funky aroma, hints of tartness and Belgian yeast aspects, plenty of citrus, a good mix of funk and hop. Great flavor, funky, lots of citrus, delicious.

A: Hazy Golde Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Some Lacing
S: Lemons, Citrus Rind
T: Lemony, Yeasty, Citrus, Sage, Orange Zest
M: Great Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Semi Bitter, Zesty
Overall, other than a nose that seemed to lack, this turned out to be one of the best white IPAs Ive ever had.
