Served from the can in a tumbler at Ranalli's.

Dunno how this bachelor party made its way to this random Wisconsin-centric bar, but who am I to argue here, right? Anyway, this stuff pours a cloudy brass topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises bright flowers, wet grass, greens, and a hint of cardamom. The taste brings in more of the same, then, quite unfortunately, things take a sudden and direct turn toward a kale- and cabbage-filled path, the former taking preeminence. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, this probably could have been a decent "white IPA", but the strange and thoroughly bitter vegetable character does a massive disservice.

Pours a soapy, white head that has great persistence. A citrus aroma wafts up; orange peel and pine-citrus hops. Hazy, straw color. Starts with a bitter, citrus flavor. You can really taste the orange rind. There is a slight floral aspect of hops behind this. Sweet malt develops briefly, but bitter orange rind comes right back in.

This is one of the better White IPA's I've had. The hops used blend perfectly with orange rind (which is a super common flavor I get in a lot of hops), so this all works well. Definitely worth a try. I'd actually probably buy this one again.
