Reviewed during the last week when out of service area/Wifi in WY/UT. Full phone notes taken at the Watchman Campground, Zion National Park, UT.

A- Can poured into a chalice glass for the review. The body is very hazy and beyond pale, it seems to lack any heated grains. A head fills out to one finger with a frothy consistency and decent retention. A tiny ring leaves spotty lace.

S- Tropical fruit nectar notes emanate from the glass in a hop based aroma. A bit mild for an IPA but still nice notes of stone fruit pulp and some citrus.

T- Hops deliver notes of tangerine, mango, tropical and stone fruit nectar, citrus peel and floral hints. Not as juicy or pungent as other IPAs but still satisfies. Seems to be some spicy and bubble gum yeasty notes but the hops used meld everything together. Just a hint of malts.

MF- The body is light and only has a slight creaminess. Carbonation is on the high side and only cushioned a bit. Slight bitterness.

Hmm. There seems to be more yeast character here than most IPAs but not white as in Wit strength. Solid fruity hops are the star of the show and bring everything together. Nothing is off and it really hits the spot with strong but not palate wrecking hop flavor.

Very nicely done! Unfiltered, which leaves a good deal of the particle element which contributes nicely to any beer (in my ever unhumble opinion). Pours a light cloudy amber. Thin head. Nice, citrus aroma. One of the best hop deliveries I've seen, low on the bitter side but very present. In the world of light colored beers it is my dog's favorite, and that's quite a complement!

A--Extremely light yellow, very close in color to some lagers that I've had. In fact, I'd like to try this next to Wasatch's new Snap Down Header IPL. One finger head disappears quickly, but leaves a lot of lacing on the side of the glass.

S--Citrusy hops are the first and foremost thing on the nose. It's followed by a hint of pine and maybe just a bit of a bread type smell.

T--Very good. Again the hops are the first thing you get, and it's a great barely bitter taste. The finish is actually lighter than I expected: bright, crisp, and citrusy.

M--Very light and crisp. Great amount of carbonation to make it refreshing. Easily the most drinkable of any version of IPA that I've ever had, though admittedly it's the first white IPA I've tried. I'll be interested to compare it to others in the style.

O--Great, refreshing beer with just the right amount of hop kick. I'll definitely be buying it again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. New Wasatch labeling features a great rendition of a ghostrider against a black background. 6% ABV. Bottle marked enjoy by 8/8/14. Recommended food pairing: "Squirrel over an open fire." I love Wasatch.
