Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden/whitish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some hops and spice. Taste is good. Hops, citrus, coriander, smooth and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

From a can:

Big head billows up in the glass, perhaps Ishould have just drank from the can. Oh well, head settles nicely, rocky and sticky to about 2 fingers.

Very light bodied. Straw color. Dare I say "ghostlike"? A bit hazy. Head is really nice now

Aroma is light on the hops, and has really not much else. Hint of esters here and there.

Very light taste. The hops are not IPA level and provide small doses of florals. Malt backbone is fragile and light. Esters in the nose do not come through in the flavor. This is a very light IPA, and I wouldn't even call it an IPA. Nice dryness on the end, but it's a rather boring beer.

12oz can, a random selection from the King Soopers across from my hotel in Denver last week.

This beer pours a cloudy, medium whitish yellow hue, with three fingers of puffy, rocky and frothy bone-white head, which leaves some stellar and consistent webbed lace around the glass as it slowly drops away. Now that is a 'white' IPA.

It smells of bitter, and slightly dank pine needles, peppy orange and white grapefruit rind, somewhat astringent yeast, crackery, doughy pale malt, and further muddled leafy and tropical fruit hop notes. The taste is gritty, grainy pale malt, orange juice pulp, leafy pine resin, sedated yeast, a bit of mixed and matched antipodean fruit, and a certain wet, almost flinty leafiness.

The carbonation is fairly laid-back, just a fizzy tic here and there, the body a decent medium weight, and well smooth, with a growing creaminess as it warms. It finishes a bit on the sweet side, the malt and inherent fruitiness of the hops starting to strangle out the bitterness from the same.

A pleasant version of the style, one which puts more effort into its looks (and succeeds wildly), than in insisting that yeast be front and center. The result is a tasty, softened sort of IPA, one I could see indulging in multiple rounds, the next time I have fresh squirrel to BBQ.
