Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: tigg924 on 12-26-2012

The Two Roads interpretation of this emerging beer style naturally takes a road less traveled. Unlike other versions, ours employs an American ale yeast and no spices. The result is a soft wheat backdrop that accentuates the Pacific Northwest hop character.

2.35/5  rDev -35.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a very pale yellow, almost like hoegaarden but clearer and maybe lighter. Fizzy white head turns to just a ring of fizz on the edges.
Nearly no aroma. Faint malt and very mild earthy, grassy hops. No bitter or fruity smells at all.
Flavor is much the same as the aroma. Mostly water. Mild wheat malt and a tangy hop bitterness followed by a mixture of pineapple and pine hops. None of the flavors are super overpowering, but the hop bitterness and flavor increases as I drink more of the glass. There's a bit of yeasty flavor in the back end.
Mouthfeel is very light, heavily carbonated. Blown away that this is 6%

Not much going on here. Damn near a drain pour but I plowed through it. The flavor is weak and there's an odd lingering feel similar to real ginger beer, but not in a good way. I'll try it again of they change it up, since this brewery is very new, but otherwise I'm steering clear of this. (913 characters)

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into Sierra Nevada Celebration pint glass.

The color is a bright, hazy yellow with some orange highlights and a thin amount of white head with no lacing left on the glass.

The smell is filled with a wheat aroma that has a touch sunflower. There is also a hint of honeysuckle and a slight bit of funk.

The taste has a sweet zing that pops at first sip. The wheat flavor that has some slight touches of lemon and honey. The hops seem to be in the far back of the flavor.The bitterness that is found here is only slight and has the smallest hints of a grassy flavor.

The feel of this beer is light with a nice drinkable feel. There is a bit of aftertaste that hangs just a bit. A decent summer beer. (727 characters)

This white ipa kinda grew on me as I kept drinking. Malty, wheaty, hoppy and a nice spicy peppery finish. I dig it. (117 characters)

Poured into a tulip glass. Hazy Golden color with a bit of orange. Good solid head and lacing. Smells of citrus, but very light. Not much of a smell, clean. Tastes crisp and refreshing. A little carbonation bite at first but a medium mouthfeel overall. Well balanced with a light grapefruit/citrus taste and a gentle hoppy finish. Flavorful but not spicy. A little dry. Not assertive but very drinkable. I enjoyed this one. (424 characters)

Bought a six pack at Table and Vine in West Springfield. Served in a pint glass.

The drink had a straw-yellow, cloudy appearance with a frothy head and patchy lacing. I could smell the honey flavor with some orange citrus and a wheat bread aroma. Taste was a malty sweetness mixed with a bready-lemon flavor. Medium body with a decent carbonation. Overall, a sweet IPA. (372 characters)

Great beer - I'm not usually an IPA person, but the esters of the wheat beer really balance out those usually hardcore American hops. Yum. (139 characters)

Thanks Kegatron for gifting me with a can of this. Poured into a snifter the brew appears a hazy yellow color with yeasty chunks. A white soapy head rests atop.

A fruity herbal nose with floral hop notes. A nice set of hop aromatics from start to finish without going over the top.

A fruity hop taste somewhat floral with slight sulfur carbonics and grain essence to balance. This brings a nice interplat of wheat and hops without becoming too sweet.

This is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Overall nice stuff, worth trying. (535 characters)

Pours a whitish-golden hue with a huge frothy white head into my glass.

Sweet and slightly fruity upfront. The use of wheat is most obvious at this point.

Drinks as a hoppy wheat beer would.

Sweet, buttery and hoppy finish.

An interesting cross of styles that couldn't be further apart. (294 characters)

Pours a hazy yellow /orange color with a bit of head that fizzes quickly. Smell of bread with some citrus on the end. The flavor was very good and surprising from an underwhelming smell. Full of citrus and mild fruits like banana make its way into the beer. Very refreshing beer, would definitely buy again. (307 characters)

When poured, it's a little flaky, but given that I'm not generally big on IPAs, I rather enjoyed this because its floral tones aren't as prominent as most others like it. It's brewed with grapefruit, and it can be smelled and tasted. (233 characters)

NOT your standard IPA....this very Light, Crisp and Refreshing IPA...almost taste like a summer session ale....Not usually a LBIG fan of beers with too much Lemon & Citrus but I found this quite refreshing and would recommend HONEYSPOT during a hot summer day. (260 characters)

12oz can: this one pours a cloudy, straw yellow color. There was a bit of a frothy white head that left some lacing. The nose is decent, even though a little subdued. Citrus and wheat are the main notes. A slight spiciness. The taste is good. Just a bit of a citrus hop bite, with a little wheat in the background. Slightly spicy and peppery. A nice beer! (355 characters)

A: slightly hazy; pale straw in color; 1 finger white head that receded slowly to a thin, uneven cap; very nice, thick lacing;

S: a little restrained; citrusy hops, bready, what's there is nice;

T: a touch of bread, then tart grapefruit comes in; light to moderate bitterness starts at mid-palate;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation; refreshing; moderately dry finish;

O: tough to score this one; if I'm in the mood for an IPA, I'm never choosing this - it's a very nice beer, but a slightly different category; (528 characters)

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

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, high carbonation, light yellow in color, clear

Smell: citrus hops and pineapple

Taste: citrus hops, wheat lemon, light Belgian spices and pineapple

Mouthfeel: light body, bitter with light sweetness, medium carbonation

Overall: Of all the Two Roads beers I have tried, this is the one that I was least impressed with. It is above average if you want a white IPA and this beer gets better as it warms, still there are others that I would go to first. (488 characters)
