Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass. Bottle says best before Feb 02, 2014.
Appearance: Pours a bright and clear straw golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of white head which fades into a patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of creamy lacing.
Smell: A fairly sweet and fruity hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront scent of hops with earthy hints of grass and pine resin. Citrus hop hints of orange, lemons, pineapple, grapefruit, and peach. Pale malt and wheat with hints of grains, cracker, straw, and yeast. Fairly spicy smelling. A pretty solid hoppy aroma.
Taste: Like its smells, a very hoppy taste with a mix of grass, spicy pine, and citrus fruit esters. Upfront taste of earthy, herbal, and floral hops with notes of spicy pine resin and grass. Juicy citrus hop presence with notes of orange, pineapple, lemon zest, grapefruit, melon, and peach. Backing presence of pale malt and wheat with notes of grains, straw, cracker, and yeast. A solid mix of hop flavors.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and oily. Finishes dry.
Overall: A solid hoppy IPA taste. Not much of a "white" presence as the name would suggest, but the mix of resinous hops is good.
