3.55/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to USMCretired for sharing this one.

Batch # RB13254-2. Best before 6/2014.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus, chalk, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that seems more like a normal witbier than any sort of IPA in my opinion.

4.35/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Makes a spectacular entrance, with a meringue-like head capping the cloudy honey colored liquid; plenty of lacing action

Smell: Fresh and herbal, the fruit tones (banana, lemon and orange) complemented by the spicy sage

Taste: Bready, up front, with the citrus making an early entrance; underneath, the sage, lemongrass and other fruit flavors round out the profile; the finish is crisp and citrusy

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I have been debating whether to purchase a bottle and when I saw it on tap I decided to give it a go; well worth the experience

Had on tap at the Corner Slice here in GSO tonight.Poured into a standard pint glass a lightly hazed medium golden with a thinner but well sustained white head atop.Aromas are yeasty but not very phenolic with lemon oils and herbal notes.Citrusy and bright on the palate with yeasty undertones with some spice,more herbal hops come around in the finish.A nice well rounded BIPA,yeasty but not in your face with good fresh hops flavors.

3.68/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours an effervescent & slightly hazed bronze with fluffy pearl colored head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Big-time yeasty notes, graininess, white pepper, coriander & lemon peel, plus juicy-fruit

T: Phenolic notes, wet cereal, lemon zest & grapefruit up front, cloves as well. Grassyness, cloves, grapefruit & wet cereal as this warms. Finishes with lemons, grapefruit & cloves & slight juiciness & a touch of booze bite

MF: Fairly chewy, slight carbonation, decent balance

Drinks fairly easy, not one I would buy again. I find very few of these white IPAs that interesting. I like New Belgium's Accumulation a ton more & can get a sixer of that for less money

smokestack series does it again! I love white ipa, and this is a darn good one. it pours pale golden in color and has over an inch of soapy white head with great lasting ability. nose is real herbal, not as hoppy as expected, I smell all kinds of sweet wheat malt, like a tripel really, and more of a summery hop vibe. the flavor is the same, herbal as anything. more than just the sage the label suggests, I pick up golden raisins and pine too, an odd but very pleasurable combination. its refreshing too, a nice surprise as well. its insanely drinkable, interesting enough to hold my attention through a 750 ml bottle, and real light for what it is. the alcohol is invisible, and the hops finish is long and a little fruity, hardly bitter at all. light feel, the wheat malt doesn't give it much heft, which is appreciated here. my question though, is why do all white ipas have to be hoppy Belgian wit types with spices and coriander and all of that. why cant we just have a hoppy wheat beer, no frills? this comes close, but there is some definite spice here, and the herbal vibe convolutes the hops. still this is amazing, highly recommended.

look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear yellow with an abundance of floaties. Lovely tall stack of suds in the Peroni lager glass. Aroma of fruit and sage and flowery hops is a standout.

The sage and lemongrass give this a distinctly different flavor from the usual coriander and orange peel. Big Hefeweizen clove taste. Really a lot of spicy flavor, and then the bitterness starts in. Hops blend nicely with the herbs. It's a spicy, aromatic, tangy and thoroughly crazy brew. The hops take over the aftertaste, but I've never had anything so hot with spice and so hoppy at the same time. The clove taste is the bully here.

I don't mind sediment, especially in a wheat beer, but the floating bits always put me off. From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Best Damn Beer Shop in San Diego.

Two finger lasting head. Leaves blanketing lace on the tulip glass. Gold color with a mild haze.

Okay, this is really odd but I smell pastrami. It must be a combination of smoke and ground pepper. There are some other complimentary spices like mustard and rye bread. AND I find this attractive!

Brief start with some creaminess. Then I taste coriander and black pepper. This is a fascinating beer. It's delicious and very unusual. I also detect a lavender aftertaste. Full bodied with an appropriate carbonation level. Definitely worth seeking out for something completely different...and good.

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of Belgian and earthy spices, floral hops, Belgian yeast. Flavor is Belgian yeast, coriander and sage, mild malt, grassy hops; the profile leans towards a mild tripel probably because of the spicing, but I detect a mild funkiness. Nice medium body, lightly creamy, nice mouth feel. The Belgian spices and farmhouse yeast flavors dominate this over the hops, which are present, but subdued. There is a lingering grassy hop finish, but not much aromatic hops present. I liked this hybrid of Belgian tripel spicing and light American hopping. Interesting and refreshing.

overall not gonna be for everyone, but I liked it.

A-Pours golden and a bit hazy. Aggressive pour delivers a huge, frothy white head. The lacing is flared, popped bubbles that leave a cool pattern along the glass.

S-Aroma is of soapy hops with definite coriander and clove. I surprisingly do get some sage like the back label suggests. It's a unique aroma. A good amount of bubblegum as well. Wheat as well. In the nose, it's almost a bit under hopped.

T-A slightly vegetal hoppy flavor here with lighter soapy hops. The hops are balanced or even outweighed by the Belgian spice medley combined with the wheat. Bubblegum, clove, sage, coriander, dried out wheat and some grassy hops.

M-Body seems a bit thin. Not very bitter. Carbonation is a bit dull.

O/D-Not a big fan of this brew. It's unique but too Belgiany for me. Could use some more aggressive hoppiness to counterbalance the spice and wheat. Not too happy with the purchase.
