Pours hazy straw with a large white head.
Herbal aroma, coriander and green plant-like characters. Also some wheat, lemon and pine.
More lemon and wheat as flavours along with a peppery note. Spicy hops are present too. Feels a little sharp with little supporting malt to soften things.
Carbonation is much too high.

A: Hazy straw color with a foamy white head.

S: Lots of lemon and citrus fruit peels, some grapefruit, and some earthy funky Belgian yeast hints.

T: Wheat undertones are well balanced by lighter citrus flavors, particularly lemon, but also some grapefruit and maybe orange.

M: Just the right amount of carbonation for the style, maybe a bit too much, but light bodied and refreshing.

O: This beer is delicious. I love the white IPA style, akin to a Belgian IPA, but spicy.
