Sample at Waldo Hopfest 2016. Comes a clear golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of fruit and spice. Taste is citrus fruit, spice, grain, and floral. Pretty good! zubblwump (89) - Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2016 Pours an opaque amber-orange with a modest frothy white head. Really nice aroma, sweet and spices. Flavor is a bit sour then the spices come through, leaving a nice crisp finish. Pretty good...I probably wouldn’t seek this one out, but I’d drink it again. piscator34 (2508) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle. Hazy gold in colour wi medium carbonation. Aromas are of hoppy orange, coriander, and tropical flowers. Nice blend of hoppy and old school soap flavors, along with elements of flaked wheat and kitchen herbs. Medium bodied. A well executed hybrid. ajnepple (6417) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2016
12 oz single bottle from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Clear golden-orange appearance with a white head. The aroma is zesty, herbal, floral and spiced with a hint of fruity esters. Similar flavor, adding citrus fruits and a light peppery spice. Smooth and balanced with mild bitterness. Better than expected. Hopper8 (157) - Holland, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2016 This is a really pleasant beer. In terms of a summer seasonal it’s a different type of beer then an Oberon, which is nice. It’s a little more hoppy and bitter than the citrusy nature of Oberon. I really like this beer, and it keeps getting better.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 2/17/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness/yeast spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is an awesome Belgian IPA style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering. AndySnow (7545) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2016

12 oz. bottle. Pours very dark amber with thick white head. Aroma is citrus, hops and spices. Taste was sweet peppery, with light bitter finish. Ahuth (567) - Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Bottled. Has a darker brown. To be fair I had floaters in. My beer so it wasn’t the freshest. Has a small Belgium taste. Not ver bold. Kind of disappointing. Lutz2jm (277) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2015
This white IPA is ok. Some tropical notes with typical Belgium yeast notes. Ok but not the best
