A - cloudy yellowish in a goblet glass, a little like apple cider.

S - citrusy and hoppy

T - marketed as a winter white IPA, but tastes more like a summer brew. Strong hops flavor but not overpowering.

M - nice aftertaste due to the smooth hoppy flavor.

I picked up a 6 of this last winter and forgot about it until 5 months later.. Nice mix of hops and fruit with a fairly high ABA. I'm impressed with New Belgium's IPA offerings and look forward to sampling more.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a bottle straight into a wide-bodied goblet. Pale straw (2) with a two-finger, fluffy white head with a lot of staying power and significant lacing. Nose is very light with big hints of pineapple, funky yeast, and light sweet malt. Taste is very bready, which seems to be a tendency with several New Belgium brews, and, it’s worth admitting, is not a flavor profile I enjoy all that much in my beer. Also present are light grassy hints, very mild lemon citrus, light toasted cereal grains, generic sweetness, and french fries. The hop presence is there in terms of light bittering, but not in any larger sense of flavor. Finish is mildly bitter, toasted wheat, and subtle sweet citrus. Mouthfeel is light and somewhat slick with low carbonation. All in all, this just doesn't do much for me, which is about par for the course in terms of how I feel about New Belgium products in general. As a white IPA, I was also expecting a bit more in terms of both a fuller hop presence and some Belgian yeast notes, such as coriander, neither of which is present. As it stands, this reminds me of a clumsy wheat beer and not something I’ll be drinking again anytime soon.
