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.

Slightly chill hazed gold with a massive white colored head.

Smells strongly of northwestern style hops. Smells strongly of pine. Little bit of soda cracker malt scent but it is mostly hops.

Starts out far sweeter than I expected. Fairly sweet with a flavor of pine needles and some woodiness.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall it is an OK beer if White IPA is your thing.
