Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Moved onto the MST3K version of "The Brain That Wouldn't die". Good times. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises powdered sugar, light lemon rind, coriander, and mild oats. The taste holds notes of dark greens, light black pepper, and orange peel. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a liquid feel. Overall, a very meh w"white IPA", a style whose continued existence continues to perplex me, considering I've yet to have a really good example. Oh well...
