3.51/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, small earthy hops and notes of spice and citrus. In the taste, a nice spice bite or coriander and lemon citrus, with wheat like notes. A small hop bite, but smoother, and lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer spice and citrus in the aftertaste. A decent mix of a wheat and IPA,, a bit thin though.

Enjoyed this brew on at Great Lakes Brewing Company in Cleveland OH.

A: Pours a cloudy orange hue with a frothy white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Spicy coriander and lemongrass aroma.

T: Similar to the smell there is a spicy coriander and lemongrass flavor with some earthy tones.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Excellent Witbier – worthy of a try.

Inconjunction with ales for als.
White ipa (not a style option)

On tap at the pub: a light yellow cloudy almoat looks like watered down pineapple juice.
Smell is a hint of grain and then resiny hops.
Taste is refreshing hoppy and hides 7% well. Dont pick up the coriander, white pepper, or lemon grass but to me its like hoppy watered down pineapple juice and delicious.
Mouthfeel is light with a crisp bite and makes this crushable.
Over this is a very tasty hybrid that could be dangerous at 7%
Maybe it was the walking at the zoo in july but this just hit the spot.
