Bright white head on a hazy light golden brew in the tall glass. Very nice aroma of flowery hops and pineapple. Nice carbonation that lasts all the way down the glassful.

I'd have to call this a hopped-up Witbier, which is maybe the right category. Brewer says it's dry hopped (45 IBUs) with a touch of coriander. Light bodied, pale malt flavor, and a spicy flavor. A very nice mouthful of hops but only a moderate bitterness. You certainly wouldn't mistake this for the usual hop-crazed IPA. A little funky graininess, almost a hint of plastic, along with the spice. But it's actually quite quaffable and would be worth seeking out on a Utah beer expedition.

From the 12 oz bottle bought at Utah Brewers Cooperative brewery store in Salt Lake.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

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.

Citrus is the best way to describe this beer. Drank this one from the bottle and upon opening the first thing you smell is citrus trailed by a hint of hops. The beer tastes just as it smells...citusy. The taste over all was pleasant and i enjoyed it. The mouth feel of this beer was very very carbonated. Over all I really liked this beer and believe it to be a great example of a white IPA.

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.
