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.

Pours out a hazy gold with a rocky head. Smells like a slightly hoppy wit: crackery grains and citrus. This really is a tasty witbier, but I'm not getting much IPA. Tastefully done in regards to spicing. Nice crisp, dry malt body. Hops are not in the forefront. Quite a bit of fruity esters. Mouthfeel is light and lively. Solid witbier, but lacking as a white IPA.

Pours hazy golden yellow color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is decent. Lacing is very good. Citric, lemon, slightly piney aroma. Slightly, lemony, malty taste up front. Maltiness is light. Mild hoppy bitterness doesn't show up until the end. Piney, citric aftertaste. Not too bad but wouldn't ever be my first choice.

Reviewed in North End Boston over linguine. Not exactly a beer mecca so was surprised to find.
Poured from a bottle into an iced glass. Hazy, relatively dense in appearance but mouth feel is lighter than it looks. Fruity to the nose and light on palate, but a good amount of complexity to save from being insipid. Would drink again but more as an interesting accompaniment to food rather than for its own sake.
