Light yellow. Looks like a fairly healthy urine specimen.
Smells like spices particularly cinnamon and a little citrusy too. Tastes approximately like pears sprinkled with cinnamon. It's light and easy to drink but kinda blends in with all the other servicable white ipas out there.

355ml bottle poured into tulip 21/12/14

A murky pale yellow, enough clarity to see a few bubbles popping up here and there, thumbs width of loose soapy foam has enough retention to leave a thick collar of lace

S pineapple, canned peaches, lots of sweet orange peel, more tropical then expected, coriander, dry cereal, vitamin C chewable's and a little perfume

T much more spice and much less tropical hops, fairly toned compared to the nose, cereals come out a little stronger, just a hint of yeast

M light bodied but frothy from the bubbles, strange even, very slick on the palate almost slimy, spicy rind lingers

O decent WIPA but nothing to really set it apart, the nose was great but it couldn't maintain that quality throughout but still solid

I could drink a few of these under a hot sun, perhaps better suited for a summer day but no major complaints on this chilly evening

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.
