12oz bottle poured into an IPA glass.

A: Golden-orange in color. Thick haze. Big, rocky white head stubbornly persists. Lacing sticks everywhere in a thick, foamy coating.

S: Floral hops, spruce pine, orange peel, peppery coriander, doughy and chalky yeast, hint of alcohol, tropical esters, lightly honeyed malt.

T: Floral hops, soft piney flavors, pithy citrus fruits. Bitterness is ample. Peppery coriander. Light medicinal phenols and a brush of alcohol. Orange peel comes out more toward the back. Honeyed and biscuity malt. Chalky yeast. Pithy hop finish.

M: Medium bodied. Creamy and silky. Low carbonation lets it sit with a little more heft.

O: White IPAs have been a little slower to catch on than I thought they'd be. This one is pretty much as I envisaged the style to be. Great balance. Not necessarily wheat-dominated. Higher abv, good Belgian yeast character, ample hop flavor and bitterness, and some supporting wit spicing. Still very drinkable. Good stuff here.
