look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A: Hazy, unfiltered light orange. 1 1/2 finger off-white head.
S: Strong pine notes, berry, and slight orange zest.
T: Taste follows the nose, with the orange becoming more prominent in the flavor. Bold hop flavor that is just a touch less than their Latitude 48. Caramel malt in the middle.
M: Medium body, slight IPA aftertaste. The orange is prominent, but doesn't add much to an already citrusy IPA.
O: Okay. The blend of two styles is interesting, but it is a little too bitter to be a belgian white. I guess Wheat IPA is the proper term.
