4.12/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a cloudy, golden color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of strong hops (citrus and piney), sweet malt, slight earthy malt, alcohol, slight citrus, hint of wet hops, slight spice (clove), and hint of grass. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable tartness. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus hops, clove, yeast, slight grass, hint of earthy malt, and slight alcohol. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, body, and complexity. This IPA had much more tartness, astringency, and grassy aromas and flavors than I was expecting, but it was nevertheless, great. This beer strongly resembles a Saison, but of the hoppy extremes. (756 characters)

On tap at churchkey, a really interesting and delicious beer.

Pours a nice hazy golden yellow color with a ring of white head and some lacing left in the glass. The smell is glorious: fresh citrus/grapefruit zest mixes with tropical fruits and grassy dank hops, some slight yeasty sweetness as well, I absolutely love this aroma, if it was slightly bigger it would be a 5.

The taste follows the smell with some fresh squeezed citrus mixed with a stronger malt base of straw and dry lemon grass. Maybe a hint of fruit taffy Brett but it is definitely 2nd fiddle to the dominant Nelson sauvin hops. Feel is decent, medium base and carbonation.

Overall very nice beer, surprisingly good in fact. Nice work. (708 characters)

3.96/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a murky orange pour with a finger of head which quickly dissipated but gave off excellent lacing. smells of citrusy hops, pineapple, mango, wheat, coriander, oranges. the flavor is mainly citrus up front, pineapple/mango hop profile, followed by a pepper-y spicy coriander witbier finish. a lovely combination of beer profiles combined. lingering resinous bitterness keeps your thirst on a high level begging for another taste of this delicious beer. medium body with a modest amount of carbonation.

overall a very nice example of a "white ipa".. i really am loving the style. i think i may like this more if it looked less like a witbier and more like an ipa though, i really dislike murky colored beers, but what are you gonna do, after all it's what's inside that counts right? (781 characters)

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller Teku (almost proper). Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, spice, smoke, citrus, citrus hop, earth hop, wood, bubblegum, and subtle white wine. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, earth, earth hop, bubblegum, and spices. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I was really quite surprised to find some of the flavors and aromas that I did in this one. Particularly the bubblegum notes in both. This added a nice touch of fruity sweetness that really helped to balance out every other aspect of this one. A really quite well done brew that I'm glad I got the chance to tick. (848 characters)

Splitting a bottle with Merc, just hit shelves today

The beer pours a very cloudy (lambic-like cloudiness) golden yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is potently hoppy (white grape, citrus, passion fruitiness) with a hint of sweetness, but very little barnyard. The taste is pleasantly hoppy, a touch funky, and semi-sweet finish. It's a definitely a medium bodied, bretty IPA with a delicious hop profile. Very drinkable. I'm impressed by this beer and like it the most out of the femme fatale series. (531 characters)
