Poured a clear orange body with one finger head and a minor lace ring.
Aroma mixes citric hops with yeast and clove spicea and there is also hints of tropical fruit sweetness.
The yeast in the beer smoothes it out and there is a balance between citric, mostly orange, hops/flavors with some spice and touches of sweetness possibly coming from tropical fruit flavors or sugary malts.
By the end of the beer, the hops seem to take over so mostly I get a soapy hop taste that finishes real dry and almost sours as beer warms up.
Not a bad beer but the two styles didn't really mesh and it was a chore to finish this bomber.

From a bottle, pours clear bubbly straw yellow.

Nose is very herbal, flowers, pineapple, lemon, tea leaves. The flavor is lemon tea, like lipton, floral hops, a little honey, orange, lavender. They are trying to combine two styles (Belgian Wit and IPA), but I think this counter acts the positive qualities of each style, taking away from the overall total package of the beer.

4.15/5  rDev +7.8%

Appearance: Medium clarity, yellow, white head with solid lasting power, but only slight lacing (3.75)

Aroma: Pineapple hops and assorted fruity wit esters. (4.25)

Flavor: Slight dose of hop bitterness, definitely still an IPA. Sweet wheat malt, peppery Belgian yeast, piney hop flavor. (4.25)

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, solid carbonation, refreshing with a slight hop bitterness lingering (4.00)

Overall: A very solid "White IPA". Great for the summertime.

A- semi cloudy, hazy golden yellow. Moderate bone white head that didn't last long and left minimal lacing.

S- citrus (grapefruit), piney hops, herbaceous.

T- tart, citrus (lots of grapefruit and a little lemon).

M- well balanced. Light to medium body. Silky.

O- a solid brew. Would recommend and have again!

Cheers!
