My pour got a finger and a half of nearly white head. The dirty straw yellow body is rather murky.

I get grass, gardeny hops and hint of citrus.

This beer is interesting. I get garden, herb, grass, a hint of pine and lemon, with a little banana on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. Slightly dry finish.

Pours into a tall Prima Pils glass with a turbid glowing orange amber hue with a bright light off white head forming thick, you can see proteins and yeast sediment suspended in the body. Aroma is full of citrus, spice, and orange peel notes. A nice bready yeast/malt combo going on, almost like a Sam Adams Summer Ale I also notice grains of paradise on the ingredients listed on the bottle. Flavors are really combined into a spice mix pack with a mediocre IPA with citrus forward hops. Very dry presentation the bitterness comes from the spices, orange peel, and hop additions. Somewhere in the mad mix of adjuncts you have a drinkable beer, medium bodied spritzy carbonation, dry bitter finish. Overall not a bad beer and much better than some of the other White IPAs I have tangoed with.

Poured into my 21st birthday mug

A: Pours a 2.5 finger head that is white and pillowy and settles into a nice consistent foam on top. Hazy golden brown color in the middle fading to just golden on the outside.

S: Grassy, herbal, and slightly floral nose to it.

T: Hop bite right off the bat followed by sweet grains and some belgian yeast character. Follows up with the herbal hop flavor that was in the nose.

M: Medium mouthfeel with lots of scrubbing carbonation

O: Ok beer, not the best example of the style I've had but definitely not a bad beer. It seemed like they didn't commit to which of the two characteristics they want to feature. It wasn't very IPA like nor belgian like. Sort of a bland mashup of the two. Easy drinking and not a bad beer but probably won't seek it out again.
