Decent head but it dies quickly. Little lace. The color is dark gold and the liquid is crystal clear.

Nice aroma of fresh floral hop. Enough spice to make it appealing without being overwhelm.

Golden malt beginning but the hop is less subtle--more like black pepper. Thin bodied with a higher than expected carbonation. Decent aftertaste of white pepper. There's the lightest of berry in the background.

picked this one up affordably at a gas station outside of concord mass, and im glad I did. didn't catch that the bottle was nearly a year old when I picked it out, but time seems to have been kind to this interesting take on an ipa. its obvious he hops have faded some, and is its very clear for a white type ipa. it has a few things really working for it, despite low ratings here. the first is a total lack of coriander, orange peel, and Belgian yeast. these have too ften meant hoppy wit, not wheat based ipas, so I was happy to have this white ipa what I look for but almost never find in terms of recipe. the wheat still tastes fresh, a little sweet like honey, and fuller bodied. the hops have faded a lot, because this tastes as much like a golden ale as it did an ipa, but I like it not being bitter, and the malt lingering around soft citrus notes from what hops are left. carbonation was high in this too and the bubbles were big. if you look past all the things this one isn't, and get in tune with its nuances, its actually quite unconventional and it tastes great. my first from these guys

Not sure where the "white" comes from, or is, because this looks like many IPAs I've had. Nose is basic - smells like beer with no hops detected at all. Taste is bland, just like an IPA whose hop essence has gone. May make sense given that this was bottled on 3/17/15. This tastes a lot like 603's Rye Pale Ale, which itself is unimpressive. Anyway, don't bother with this one. Unfortunately, I bought a bomber of it so I have to muscle my way through it. I give it a C.

Pours medium hazy gold with some bottle conditioned floaties - I wasn't overly careful with the pour, but that's ok. Not much of a foam head, but what you get lasts and leaves a little clingy foam.

What an odd aroma. Pine needles, dry toasted malt, chemical (like glue, plastic or turpentine). This is a turn off. As it opens a bit, I get some sweet grain.

Dry brew, with toasted malt and bitter hop presence. Malt is toasty and lean and mean. Hops are pure bitter. Not a juicy one here. Malt, hop leaf, and grain in the finish. Decent. But there's something else there. If I can't ID it, I can't knock them for it.

Medium bodied, but just barely. A little loose. Nice carbonation.

Um...alot of flavor comes from aroma. And that just killed me. And I swear I was getting some plastic in the flavor as well.

Bottled on April 7, 2013. Sampled on May 11, 2013.

It pours a cloudy pale yellow with a bubbly, lingering head and a little yeast sediment floating about.

The aroma is of floral hops, earth, and bread. All work well off each other and nothing overpowers the other.

Light to medium body.

The taste also has a pleasant sweetness and breadiness with the floral hops played down a little and a touch of citrus. Overall and easy to drink and refreshing beer.

Pours a lightly hazy medium golden color with a nice bubbly white head that persists for a while before impaling itself to the sides of the glass. Smells of light bread and honey like malts with a hint of light pitted fruits and a solid shot of Belgian yeasty esters. light floral and earthy hop aromas provide a fitting contrast to the malty sweetness. The flavor is more Belgian pale ale than IPA to me. Light sweet fruity malts with lots of clove to counter. Earthy and spicy hops provide some balance. Light to medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet watery mouthfeel. Decent beer, technically nothing wrong with it, just not really my thing.
