Pours a hazy maize color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hint of piney hops, slight alcohol, slight sweet malt, and a hint of tea. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, hint of piney hops, slight alcohol, slight sweet malt, and a hint of tea. Overall, weak appearance, aroma, and body.

Yellow color with a thin head with short retention.
Decent dry-hopping with notes of lemon, floral, bread, some pine and lemongrass.
Hoppy flavor without being relatively bitter with notes of lemon-orange peel citrusy, wheat, lemongrass, maybe coriander and other spices. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Super refreshing White IPA. Predominant Citra and Cascades hops contribute more to its assertive flavors rather than bitterness.

I just drank a stout so maybe this IPA snuck up on me. The flavor caught me by surprise, in a good way. It's an IPA that isn't just a hop bomb. It's got areal crisp taste to it. Kind of feels like there is a lot of carbonation in it but I only see a small sliver of foam on top. It's well balanced and crafted. It's a nice change to the usual poor selection of beer I find out here in Korea!

Yellow and cloudy. White frothy head, diminishing. Excellent lacing. High hop aroma. Citrus and tropical fruits. Medium bitter flavor. Low complementary, malty sweetness. Medium light body, medium carbonation, watery, smooth, long dry finish, saltiness.

I expected more bitterness.

22oz bottle - so a White Session IPA - sure, why the hell not?

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, rocky, and somewhat fizzy eggshell white head, which leaves a bit of streaky, low-lying cloud pattern lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of gritty and grainy wheat malt, mixed citrus rind acerbities, an earthy yeastiness, and more leafy, piney, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy wheat cereal, a lesser pale malt graininess, some lemon, orange, and white grapefruit citrus flesh, still laid-back yeasty notes, and more edgy leafy, herbal, and piney verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly straightforward in its supportive frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and generally smooth, neither the hops nor the yeast willing to put up an interfering gesture, it would seem. It finishes off-dry, the wheaten malt starting to absorb the will of any lingering citrusy, piney, or yeasty notions.

Overall, this is a refreshing and easy to drink version of a few different styles, all brought under the same umbrella. I could see pounding this stuff back on a hot summer day by the coast - in between trips to the men's loo, that is!

On-tap served in a stemmed glass at Wishbeer, Bangkok.

Hazy pale golden color, it comes with thick white silky head that well retains itself before gradually collapsing to a long-lasting foamy film on the surface and leaving plenty of lacing patch and spot here and there.

There is significant aroma of lemony and citrusy hop in the lead as well as orange peel, floral, passion fruit, tropical, a little bit spice, pine, resin, and some twang of wheat. Malt can also be sensed with its sweet bread and light caramel in the background.

Sweet, bready, and wheaty grain from malt lay as a base of the flavor structure in order to let hop to shine with suggestions of some spice, citrus, lemon, and tropical fruits. Unfortunately, the bitter bite is quite weak and just quickly flash with low strength as well as the fruitiness part which is not that lively comparing to the aroma.

The body is medium with some lively carbonation to generate some crisp through the palate, the mouthfeel is quite smooth with refreshing touch and dry finish.

Like good IPA in the aroma but some more like Wit in the taste, overall it is okay.

Presentation: 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Look: Hazy, golden yellow with a white two finger head. Good head retention.

Smell: Piney hops and a little citrus.

Taste: Follows the nose, mostly hops and some citrus. Very low hop bitterness, almost not there at all.

Feel: On the thinner side of medium, low carbonation and a tad dry. Very easy drinking.

Overall: A very good beer overall, although in my opinion it is a white beer with hops and not an IPA.

Bottle from WinCo. Very pale, ha y Holden, thin, soft fluffy head. Aroma is faint very faint, not picking up much at all. Taste, what little there is, is light malts and hops, some citrus. Again, this is a lightweight of a beer, more for chugging, than sipping.
