4.15/5  rDev +9.2%

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Lighter, and mildly transparent gold in color .There is a two finger frothy head.

S: Smells like a classic IPA, a strong hop presence, with a little tinge of Belgian Wit added in. I also smell spicy esters as well as fruity esters.

T: The wheat malts give it a softer, more delicate taste, but the hops take over with an aggressive flavor.

M: Once again, the wheat malts make for a smoother mouth feel, but then the hops take over. This beer has a nice, medium body.

O: This is a great beer. I am not keen to drink Belgian Wits, but this is bomb. Drink it in the summer!

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!
