A very solid IPA by a very solid brewery! These guys never disappoint and this one is true to form. A very clean beer with great smell and a taste that builds to a good hop finish. If you like American IPA this is a fine choice. I will enjoy several of these while they last!

Pours a straw hazy yellow, half finger of white head. Looks like grapefruit juice.
Smell is 100% citrus, grapefruit, lemon, citrus peels maybe a little grassy hop character.
Taste is really impressive, was not expecting this based on the scores, tropical and citrus are all over this thing, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, light orange and tangerine, just really juicy, slight pepper like spice, like wheat character, pear and yep even more grapefruit in the bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium light but built up do to the heavy carbonation, finishes rather dry.
WOW, was not expecting this based on the score, maybe it is suffering from a little of NB biased... People seem to shit all over them because of there size and whatnot... Which I never understood as SN gets nothing but praise and they are even larger.
If you like a good Citrus, grapefruit, tropical bomb at a even better price scoop it up.
Will be scooping up a 12 or two of this!

12 ounce bottle into pint glass.
A: Decent head and lacing that dwindles down into a nice sheen.
S: Nice centennial hops hit of wheat malts, and pale malt. Pale malts and citrusy-piney-kindbuddy hops rule the nose.
T: Definitely not the normal winter-brew characteristics, but good nonetheless. Big hops and pale malts, smallest sweet flavor from the wheat malt. I could dig this by a winter's fire for sure.
M: Nice medium feel.
O: Great brew. Please keep up the good work New Belgium!

Pale yellow colored beer with a small white colored head. The base is obviously a wheat beer.
Smells strongly hoppy. Scents of pine and grapefruit and a eucalyptus tree funk. Weirder scents too, Aspirin, and cedar wood.
Starts out mildly sweet with a strong grapefruit rind taste. Medium bitterness it tastes better than it smells, but you had better like hops. Slight woody aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall an OK beer. Still I liked the old seasonal 2 Below better.

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Stamped (best by) 23 Feb. 2014.
Pours quite light, true to the white IPA claim, with a lighly hazed golden-yellow body and an undersized head. Leaves spotty lacing.
Nothing light about the aroma or flavor; instead, this beer packs a solid load of citrus hops. Seems to have a slight tart note along with a somewhat restrained bitterness. Some bready underpinnings from the malts add to the nice mix of fruity flavors.
O: a great beer to pair with say, a schwarzbier, to show people that light beers are not always light and dark beers are often not strong.
