It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of hops, grapefruit, florals and subtle pepper. The taste was light, hoppy, grapefruit along with other citrus fruits that were mingled in. The body was a little thin and the carbonation was medium. Not bad.

On tap at Old Chicago as part of a mini tour. Cloudy yellow pour kind of reminded me of a specimen you would give to your doctor. However, the rest of the experience was pure New Belgium. Crisp and clean.

Draft at SB. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a loose white head that sticks around, leaving plenty of webby lace. Big spicy nose, lots of coriander and clove and white pepper. Mild fruity counterpoint. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Nice tangy sweetness played off against white pepper and light wit spice esters on the mid palate, with a finish that gets progressively cloudier and stickier as the pint goes on. Not too bad overall.

Bottle - Pours hazy light yellow with a small head. Has a citrus aroma and taste with what seems to be a hint of lemon but thats probably the Mosaic hops coming through. Also has a grassy taste. Refreshing and somewhat dry on the finish.

Pilsner yellow.Light head.Slight haze. Aroma is like rampant almost. Earthy pungent and almost sulfery at the same time. Kinda a funky sulfer - good and not good at the same time. Taste is bready wheat some citrus,session like with hoppiness fairly clean hoppy finish. Not a hop choice I think I would like with this style maybe.Good /ok for the style but Im not a fan of this style at all. Not a fan of this hop character in this type of beer either.

Finhead (1703) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Hazy, faint yellow pour with a billowy, white head. The aroma has citrus with light floral notes. It has a light, somewhat crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter and dry, yet refreshing.

Its a good IPA as far as that goes, but Im not a giant fan of IPAs being the winter seasonal. Good grapefruit aroma though.

Pours super pale straw with lasting white head. Really nice aromanot quite floral just really nice. Flavor is ipa like just not the malt balance but does not seem lacking in any way. Really like this beer and it is a style i have not loved from others.

Gold pour slightly hazy. Floral and pine in the nose. Some coriander. Taste adds grapefruit and a long lasting bitterness. Fairly light. Pretty good.

12 oz bottle poured into my ipa glass. Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a thick with head that leaves great lacing. Smells of citrus, wheat, pine, pepper, and coriander. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a very spicy hop finish that overpowers the beer. Mouthfeel is slick with good carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty good white ipa but I think they should lay off the spicy hops slightly if they brew it again next year.
