Very wit-ish, and not very hop-ish. Really like an amped up Hoegaarden or similar.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a weizen.

A = Cloudy pale straw color with 2.5 finger billowy white head. Streams of bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. There is a ring of yeast around the bottom of the bottle, and in true Belgian style, is swirled and mixed for added flavor and aroma. Lacing is foamy and thick.

S = Sweet, floral and fruity, heavy on the citrus. Notes of bread, orange, and a peppery spiciness linger on the nose.

T = Citrusy hops compliment this well. Grapefruit, orange, and a hint of something tropical, perhaps mango. Crisp and light, bready and citrusy, with just enough hop bite to round things out. Very tasty and refreshing white IPA.

O = A good example of a white IPA, certainly recommended. Crisp, refreshing, and good to the last drop.
