On-tap at The Porter in the ATL.
This beer arrives as I could best imagine a beer classified as a white ipa would, an effervescent, half-hearted blonde (a sort of neon pale) body capped with a sizable and resilient eggshell hued head. With regard to the nose, while there are the familiar Belgian yeast characteristics, alongside some dank (but ultimately mild) hop florals, the dominate aromatics are of the rich grapefruit/bitter orange citrus order with something brightly vegetal lingering in the background. Conversely, on the palate, this beer is dirty, earthy, full of lemon and proud of its grassy upfront hops. It strikes me almost as an imperial Oberon; faint esters and pungent citrus woven into wheat/grain tones and supported by an appropriately aggressive hop profile. In turn, it is wonderfully bitter -- citrus peel, lemongrass and hop bitterness effectively rounding out the tail end. The feel is another study in multiple personalities, appropriately carbonated and wet enough to be refreshing but still surprisingly plush and supple.
It seems easy to take it for granted (another ipa) , but we've been given a lot here (a beautiful ipa) and, in good faith, what more could we really ask for?
