A - Cloudy yellow with a finger of foamy white head, a little spotty lacing, not so lace-y as the name would suggest.
S - A little belgian spice, mildly floral, orange, white grape, grassy, smells pretty decent.
T - Clove, orange juice, banana, lemongrass, a little soapy, some light grape, some spicy hop bite.
M - Pretty balanced and clean, the bitterness is here in this one.
O - Decent for rivertowne, I had low expectations coming in, and was pleasantly surprised.

A local brewery I have come to love just came out with this white IPA. Only 2 bucks for the single can poured into a pint glass.
A - Hmm lots of chunky sediment didn't expect unfiltered but this is a bit much. Head is super a 1/2 inch at settles to a thick sticky lace ring. color is a yellow cloudy with chunkiness I do not enjoy
S - Well thankfully the Belgium yeast toned the crap out of the intense hop bitterness of their IPA what is it like 85 IBU's? Mild coriander spice and some wheat but it's again mild.
T - It's actually quite good the hops are their but have taken a back seat and the flavors of coriander spice and yeast and fruity. Finish is dry.
M - Medium bodied. A but heavy at times but easy to drink.

Overall it's a great take on the white IPA style since the base beer has such an intense hop bitterness. I may grab a six pack!
