Hop Blanc from Peak Organic Brewing Company - This pours a nice translucent golden with about a dimes worth of thick head that stayed around. Now with my first nose of this I thought they mistakenly put pineapple juice in the bottle along with some kiwi and citrus fruits. The flavour matched the nose, with some hoppiness coming out in the final stages. Admittedly I went online right away to see if this was a fruit beer. Nope White IPA, which I enjoy but rarely with such fruitiness. A tasty beer that I wouldn't mind having on a hot summer day after a match or two of beach volleyball

Day 4 of my Craft Beer Advent calendar. I first came across White IPA last summer and as I enjoyed this brew, part of my wished it had been summer. The citra hops, along with zesty orange and lemon notes, make this a darn refreshing beer. I have enjoyed all of the offerings from this brewery and would not hesitate to pick up another Peak!

Day 4 of the BeerAdvent calendar.

Pours a cloudy straw colour with white fluffy head.

Nose is very pronounced fruitiness. Perhaps Mandarin Orange or "tropical" fruit.

Taste is very fruity and citrusy - lemon, lime, orange. Quite sweet and only slightly bitter at the finish

Refreshing beer. I found the fruity flavours a bit overwhelming but overall an enjoyable beer.

12oz bottle, day 4 of the 2014 Craft Beer Advent calendar. A veteran brewery for the calendar makes a return appearance.

This beer pours a hazy, bright pale golden yellow hue, with one flabby finger of loosely foamy and bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some hanging tree branch lace around the glass as it gently subsides.

It smells of fresh, sassy orange, lemon, and lime citrus peel, a further candied tropical fruitiness, tame earthy yeast, soft bread caramel and pale malt, and even more leafy, floral, and somewhat grassy hops. The taste is bready pale malt, an ethereal caramel sweetness, still rather rounded and complex citrusy, leafy, earthy, and grassy hops, a waning phenolic yeastiness, and maybe a hint of burgeoning alcohol warmth.

The bubbles are plainly frothy, and actually a tad playful, the body a pleasantly plump medium weight, and so-so smooth, the hops and yeast kind of tripping clumsily and heavily around here. It finishes well-balanced between the still peppy hops, grainy malt, and moderating yeast.

One of the better instances of a style I continue to argue has no place in my little corner of the beer canon. Anyways, the hops predominate, in their varied guises, and everything else just tries to play catchup. Another enjoyable brew from the Craft Advent calendar - keep 'em comin'!
