Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: djrn2 on 01-31-2014

“Spring” in New England is a fickle friend. So we brewed a beer that could carry us through the January cold while hinting at warmer days ahead. With notes of orange peel and coriander, the soft mouthfeel of a Belgian wit, and an intense hop profile, The Long Thaw White IPA combines the warming backbone of an IPA with citrus notes indicative of the coming spring. “Spring” in New England may be indecisive, but we can help make one decision a little easier.

A: The beer is slightly hazy and slightly pale light yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center of the glass, a collar around the edge, and a thin film in between.
S: Light aromas of orange peels and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of orange citrus with hints of coriander. The hops contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light to medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Being a White IPA, this beer seems to feel a little lighter in body compared to other beers in the style. While it doesn't have any aromas or flavors of Belgian yeast, the witbier characteristics make this seem somewhat Belgian.

Only ever so slightly grassy on the finish and/but by and large crisp. Easy drinking, nothing special but OK.

Quickly becoming one of my favorites. One of my favorite styles.. Witbier.. Combined with IPA from the brewery that already brews my favorite IPA. (to date). I would like to stock up on this stuff while it's around, cuz it's an anytime drinker. Good, good stuff.
