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.

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.

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.

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.

Appearance: cloudy yellow, sunny, with a bright white head of two fingers. Lots of spongy lace.
Aroma: wheat, flowers, citrus, bread crust, spices.
Taste: low bitterness, fruity hops, citrus, flowery, grassy, biscuity, light sweetness.
Mouthfeel: medium body, lower carbonation.
Overall: not a shining example of a white ipa, but its not bad at all.
