22oz bottle. Nice bit of American history that was heretofore unbeknownst to me detailed on the label, in terms of this offering's curious Black Sabbath-adjacent name.

This beer pours a rather hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with two fat fingers of puffy, bubbly, and loosely foamy chalky white head, which leaves a pleasant array of layered tree branch lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of slightly dank pine resin, muddled citrus pith, earthy yeast, gritty pale and wheat malt, mixed tropical fruit, and further leafy, floral, and perfumed hops. The taste is sharp pine needles, denatured orange and white grapefruit rind, edgy yeast, an even more laid back bready and wheaty graininess than in the nose, ethereal notes of pineapple and kiwi flesh, and more leafy, perfumed hop bitterness.

The carbonation is fairy active in its tightly frothy rendering, the body a sturdy medium weight, and plainly smooth, the hops playing the role of the Sword of Damocles here. It finishes mostly dry, the hops and now well-faded yeast seeing little in rebuttal or uprising from the malt.

A pretty tasty and enjoyable IPA, the 'white' characteristics clocking out shortly after they show up for their shift. Acerbic, bitter, and with very little malt balance, this one should appease the hopheads out there (my thumbs are too busy typing this).

Light and sudsy. Some spicy hop notes. A pleasant piney and flowery aroma.

Very drinkable with a resiny, gummy aftertaste. Flavors are mild with a browned biscuit taste. From the 16 oz can bought at Frontier Market in La Conner, WA.

I like "softness" of the white IPAs, smoothing out the rough edges of some of the NW hops. Pours pale golden, slightly hazy, small white soapy head, minimal lacing. Aroma is yellow grapefruit, taste is more so, short finish, lingering bitterness, but not flavor. Smooth and easy to drink. Delicious.

16oz can poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours to a thick ivory head with a slightly hazy and golden Hue.

Smell: Citrusy and yeasty aroma with hop and wheat undertones.

Taste: Citrus, especially lemon, hop bitterness that gives way to a noticeable wheat flavor. Not nearly as bitter as expected being an IPA. Light spice flavors that finishes dry.

Mouthfeel: Semi-light mouth feel with a moderate amount of carbonation that finishes dry

Overall: First Hopworks beer that I've tried and my first review on BeerAdvocate. I am usually not a fan of wheat beers but the hoppy bitterness and light feel made it much more palatable.
