Bottle into pint glass

A: poured out with a proud 2.5 finger head that relaxed after a few minutes. Cloudy amber disposition

S: definite floral aroma that preoccupied the senses

T: for lack of a better description, wheaty overtones with a light, secondary IPA presence.

M: a narrow body with a bitter attitude.

Note: Unfortunately, I have a bias against a particular "white" flavor I sensed in this beer so please factor that into my taste/smell rating.

White beer lovers might find this organic IPA very refreshing, but it doesn't possess the definitive rustic qualities I prefer in an IPA.

I'd revisit Wolavers' IPA on a hot, summer day with female friends, but wouldn't select as a year-round go-to.
