3.81/5 rDev +0.5%
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.
Appearance: Light gold with decent white head.
Smell: Grapefruit, lemon, wheat and some floral notes.
Taste: Strong wheat backbone with hop layers of grapefruit and lemon, as well as some spicy and floral notes. Lightly bitter.
Feel: Light to medium bodied, with a silky wheat mouthfeel. Not as effervescent or dry as hoped for.
Overall: This is a very hoppy wheat beer. I hate the White IPA moniker, as there is no way to tell if it has Belgian yeast or not. This one does not, but the wheat is very evident. Good beer overall, but the mix is not quite right.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.
Appearance: Pours an unfiltered golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head.
Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus fruit and wheat. Citrus hops with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, and apricot. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass and spice. Pale malt with hints of wheat, grains, cracker, and biscuit. Pretty hop forward and juicy. A solid aroma.
Taste: Like the smell, a nicely juicy and earthy hop driven taste with good notes of citrus and wheat. Upfront citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, pineapple, and apricot. Solid presence of floral and earthy hops with some notes of grass and spice. Solid backing of bready malt with notes of wheat, grains, straw, cracker, and biscuit. A pretty solid wheaty IPA taste.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Juicy and fairly drying on the finish.
Overall: A pretty solid take on a White IPA. Good citrus hop presence with a nice wheat twist.

12 oz bottle served chilled into an imperial pint glass.
Perle is a pale amber color but not as light as I expected for a white IPA. The white head is thick at first but settles fairly quickly. A small bit of lacing is left behind.
Aroma is hoppy and fresh with lemony citrus.
Flavor is sweet up front, a bit like a wit beer, but turns bitter towards the middle. The hops provide plenty of citrus flavor and a good hit of bitterness. It finishes fairly dry with a crisp smack of hops.
Mouthfeel is light in body and strongly carbonated.
Overall an enjoyable beer but not as good as their other hop-forward ales.

Cloudy golden pour with a foamy and dense white one-finger head. Nice citrusy aroma. Lots of citrus hop flavor upfront with orange, orange peel and grapefruit flavors dominating. Also has a bit of lemon and a nice grain presence. Not overly bitter. Finishes dry with a lingering grain flavor.
