Pours clouded golden with a foamy white, well-retained head. Patchy lacing sticks down the glass.

The smell is spicy coriander, orange, grapefruit, possibly a hint of lemon, and a wheat tang.

The taste is of sweet tangerine and bitter grapefruit backed by wheat tang and spicy coriander. It's an interesting, flavorful mix that works well. Dry, spicy, sweet and bitter (slightly sour) well-balanced, refreshing finish.

It is creamy smooth. Refreshing and easy-drinking.

Amarillo hops are enough to make it citric juicy but allow a subtle wheat tang and a dash of pepper to come through. A unique, refreshing brew that is complex and well-made! Very enjoyable!

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.
