3.7/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle
A: Poured into a pint sized beer mug. Very little head. A very light amber color with lots of particulate in it since it is unfiltered.

S: A nice smell. Bready, citrusy. Malt as the background.

T: Very light for a unfiltered craft brew. Same notes in the taste as the smell. No hint of alcohol. Well balanced.

M: Once again very smooth and light. No giant note sticks out. Quite a bit of carbonation. Well balanced. Nice clean finish.

A nice, well balanced, light tasting brew. I would say this beer is an excellent beer to use to introduce adjunct lager drinker into the realm of craft brewing. Also a great session beer for craftys. (653 characters)

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. (365 characters)

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. (1,220 characters)

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy bright yellow with a medium rocky white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet perfumey spices and fruit.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with a lot of citric fruit and spicy floral hops with decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Overall, a decent fruity spiced IPA. (364 characters)

Medium sized big bubbly head slowly settles above a pale straw golden colored beer that is pretty cloudy with a whole lot of small particles suspended throughout.

Citrus and fresh mowed grass like hops styles with a bit of malt grain trying to sneak in there.

A carbonated fizzy tasting beer with a bit of hops keeping it slightly bitter with a bit of the citrus aspects the aroma held.

A slight dryish aftertaste without much taste on this lighter bodied beer.

Similar to Hopside Down in the fact that the aroma is much bolder than the taste. (547 characters)

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. (1,301 characters)
