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.

Way underrated as far as I'm concerned...everyone who I give one to really likes it...it is very well balanced with not the strongest hop profile I will admit, but it is what it is and that is excellent...

That's a quality beer, dudes. It's not as bitter as most IPA's, and it's got mad Flayva. I dig. Had on draught at Westside Hootie house in MA. Alyssa is a beast. I dig, also.

A: Poured out a slightly hazy golden color. One finger of white head. Not much retention or lacing

S: Mango and slightly dank piney hops. Very attractive and fragrant.

T: The taste matches the nose. Great balance with the hops. A pine and tropical fruit wonder.

M: Medium body and medium carb. Super clean finish.

O: I really really enjoyed this one. I wish this was available for more than just the spring because it is so good.

poured from a refrigerated bottle and poured into a over sized wine glass. pours a beutiful golden color. looks alot like a pilsner lager.smell is fruity pineapple and mango sweetness from the hops.a faint belgian yeast note and a biscuity malt background. with faint pineyness. the taste is citrusy bitter hops up front. almost a dank pine resin hint. cracker breadyness on the back of the pallate. the coriander is barley present in the taste. the mouthfeel is crisp and the carbonation cleans the pallate well. pretty dry. overall this is a great white i.p.a. not the best but an above average offering in my opinion....cheers!

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.
