3.56/5 rDev -5.3%
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 81LO-09/14/13. Sampled on June 14, 2014.
Before you read much further I will declare right now that this does not fit the American IPA style. It does however fit the witbier style. IMO.
Hazy pale yellow pour with a lingering white head.
Toasted pale malts, spice, grapefruit tickle the nose. But these are witbier aromas not hoppy aromas.
Light and refreshing body.
The taste is full of toasted cracker pale malts, spice, and orange zest, and grapefruit. Mediocre hops but perhaps that is due to the age of this bottle. If someone was to plop this in front of me blindly I would call it a witbier not an IPA.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that gradually died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with slight hints of citrusy hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the hops seem to be a bit stronger and impart flavors of grapefruit and papayas as well as a moderate amount of bitterness. Hints of spices are also detectable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat crisp and dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be a lot easier to drink compared to other Belgian IPAs because it uses wheat malts and seemed a lot lighter on the palate.

Mildest of hazes. The liquid is dark gold with a light green hue. Small bar-pour head, but there is plenty of ring lace.
Floral hop aroma with a decent wheat presence.
Closer to the IPA style. The malt is bone dry, almost like a rye. Not really wheaty on the tongue. The swallow is raw-hop-bitter. If you're a home brewer, think hop pellet. Long, long aftertaste. Neutral body and carbonation.
