Appearance: This white pale ale pours a hazy pale orange color and is topped with ½”of white colored head that tends to linger.
Smell: This pale ale smell just like the style name suggests with Belgian spices and hops that balance each other nicely.
Taste: The flavor goes nicely with the aroma that allows the hops and spices to blend together for a nice representation of a style that I have never had before but kind of hope to find again.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied beer with good flavor and great body.

i am quite surprised to see this beer rather so low on here. i find it delightful, and different from the rest. the belgian yeast isnt nearly so ester laden, not so fruity and dominating, its just drying and complimentary to everything else going on. wheat base is a little darker than most, with a bronze hue to it and a nose propelled primarily by the orange. seems like more than just orange peel, but flesh too, especially in the flavor, like it was just fresh squeezed right in. the chamomile is subtle in this, but adds another layer thats accentuated by the yeast. more green tea bitterness than anything else, herbal, fun, bright. its hopped more like an american pale ale than an ipa to me, not subtle, but not huge and oily and bitter either. its in the middle somewhere, with hops that balance and add backbone to the citrus of the orange. the finish is clean and light, and thats where i taste the belgian yeast the most. great carbonation, thicker body for the style too, which makes it rather satisfying. a very cool take on the style, and i think this beer deserves a little more credit than it currently has. not the best white ipa out there, but one of the more interesting ive had lately.

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

A: Pours a deep, cloudy gold with a thin, creamy white mousse that lasts much longer than expected, lacing deep into the glass.

S: Gentle, yet distinctive aromas of caramel, cream, grass, mango, papaya, lemon, orange, and herbs express themselves on the nose.

T: Layered notes of caramel, cream, biscuit, wheat bread, lemon, lime, pine, orange, herbs, mango, papaya, carambola, grass, and fresh flowers fill the mouth. The finish is smooth and silky with notes of orange, grass, herbs, caramel, cream, and wheat bread lingering.

M: Light-to-medium in body, milky, creamy, and exceptionally smooth. Carbonation is airy and supple. Superbly easy to drink.

O: A near incredible Belgian IPA that, judging from previous reviews, does not get the credit it deserves. Really well executed with an exceptional malt body and unique hopping (I love the combination of Brewer's Gold, Glacier, Motueka, and Crystal), this one is definitely worth a try.

A - Deep gold body, with a nice white head and excellent lacing.

S - Big fruity notes, im guessing a combination of yeast/hops. I get a good bit of pineapple and kiwi.

T - More piney hops come out on the palate, good bit of the pineapple-kiwi fruit as well. Low bitterness.

M - Medium bodied, milky mouthfeel.

O - A good example of the style, not my favorite but an awesome summer time brew I'm happy to drink any time.
