3.44/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Milky pale yellow, plenty of carbonation in streams and loose. Produces a rich dense white head that leaves a nice little layer on top. A wavy blanket of lace remains; excellent.

S: Good combo of lemon, hoppy orange, coriander, touch of wheat, mild yeast. Very appetizing.

T: The flavors have taken a step back from the intensity of the nose (which wasn't very intense to begin with). Addition of white pepper mid-palate. I would have liked to see more bitterness and/or range of hop flavors. Clean finish, but short. It could last a little longer and still retain its high drinkability,

M: Light bodied, the high carbonation is on its way to being harsh.

O: As it is, it's good. Tasty flavors and excellent drinkability. No flaws by what's in it, only flawed by what isn't. I'm by no means a hop head, but I still would have thought an IPA would have more hop character (otherwise call it a hoppy Belgian White). Still, if I'm looking to put down a 6 pack on a hot summer day, this will be a top contender.

it is very drinkable with a citrus overtone that is not hoppy but offer substantial flavor.

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

Pale yellow, head fades fast leaving no trace.

Coriander, wheat, floral hops in the nose.

Interesting belgia/german type blend of wheat, coriander, clove, orange peel, and pine.

Highly carbonated.

Crisp little hybrid beer here, evocative of a witbier mainly.
