Pours hazed golden with a very thin head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of grapefruit with cracker-like backing. There are some citric hops here - not getting the "white" part.

The taste of grapefruit is there, enough to put it into hoppy pale ale, or hoppy pale wheat ale, but falls short of IPA, except perhaps in the lightest end of the spectrum. There is a bready balance. Still, any "white" character is limited to a hint of wheat.

It is creamy, smooth and easy to drink.

While it does have something of a grapefruit-like bitterness, and it doesn't taste bad, and there aren't any noticeable real detractors, it is barely an IPA, and is nothing more than a typical American Pale Wheat with a bit of a hop touch. Even out of style, it is nothing special. It's creamy, easy-to-drink and just a tad hoppy.

Milwaukee Brewing Little Bitta White India Pale Ale. "That's local flavor." 6.5% Alc. by Vol.

Appearance: hazy & yellow, small head.

Aroma: soft, slightly sweet, with very little hop bitterness, if any. Also missing are any of the hallmarks of a witbier. Often, this style is interpreted as a wit with more hops. Is this merely an IPA with wheat? Let's taste it and see…

Taste: smooth, creamy, and lightly hoppy. I can taste the wheat in this, and there's a certain amount of spice, but this is from the hop character, I think. Hop bitterness continues, then a wave of sweetness comes in, from malt. They do a bit of a shuffle, a dance for dominance, and the sweet comes out the conquerer.

This feels like the last "white IPA" I tried, with this blend of a white ale and an IPA being less than the sum of it's parts. I'm not getting the particular spicy, fruity delights of a wit, or the bracing, refreshing, thrilling aspects of an IPA.

Not sure what this is. It's not bad, but not for me. This is a very confused and confusing beer. And calling it an IPA just makes me yearn for a real one.
