Wasatch GhostRider White IPAWasatch GhostRider White IPA
Notes: Legend has it Ghostrider roams Utah's Wasatch Range seeking revenge: “someone” stole his White IPA recipe. Smooth and crisp, it's made from pale barley and citrusy hops. It's too good to hide!

Ghostrider is an unfiltered White IPA brewed with coriander.

Scrappy notes from 2015.
6 pack of 12 oz bottles purchased in Brainerd, MN.
Pours a pale off gold color with a thin rocky white head and has a fair amount of fine sediment. Lovely smell of coriander and hops. Great tasting with flavors of lemon, coriander and pine. It is clean feeling/drinking, not too bitter but is zesty and is kind of dry on the palate. I would buy this beer again as it is very good.

Pale gold. Decent white lacing. Nose and taste of lemon and coriander with a piney finish. Light bodied, moderately carbonated, crisp and tasty.

Poured from a can into a tulip.

Pours a slightly hazed pale gold with a nice foamy head and good lacing.

The aroma is a nice meld of gentle floral and earthy hop aromas and tart and spicy yeast.

The brew is initially pale-malt sweet with mild citrus zest on the tip of the tongue. Herbal and yeast notes arrive in mid-stream, with coriander arriving and citrus increasing. The brew closes with a touch of booze and a citrus-tart flavor. The flavors are solid, although muted.

The brew has a nice soft feel. Medium bodied, I suppose, but well-carbonated, and the tartness, hops, and booze keep it lively.

This is a tasty brew that would be excellent if it had a bit more flavor, and looked a little prettier.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Pours a pale, clear champagne lemon color with a fizzy white head. SRM of 4.0 (3.75)

Aroma: Aromas of tropical citrus, flower, herbs, and light pine. Smells very herbal, flowery, and juicy (3.75)

Flavor: Initial flavors of herbs, pine, and coriander. Then comes a sweet tropical tangerine sweetness on the end. Not very bitter. Finishes clean and dry. (4.00)

Feel: Lighter bodied, crisp. Well-carbonated. It allows it finish clean, crisp, and dry. Given the low bitterness it really leaves nothing on the palate. Alcohol is slightly apparent given the lighter body. (3.75)

Overall: A lighter, flowery, and juicy IPA. Flower like the English, yet has American citrus, and a lighter body like a Saison. It's a hybrid beer and it's extremely tasteful and complex. I could enjoy it in the summer like a Saison, or I could drink this during the holidays with it's piney notes. It's the Suicide Soda of beers. (Final Rating: 3.95)

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours slightly hazy and golden colored with an impressive head; strong retention and good lacing

Smell: Floral and grassy with coriander and citrus tones

Taste: A hint of grain, in the front end, with some floral and grassy flavors building; through the middle, the citrus builds, a bit, and the coriander arrives; somewhat grassy in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Some nice elements here but I would prefer to see more of a hop presence

Pours a very light golden color. The head is very impressive, never completely fading as I very slowly drank this down. If you are familiar with Belgian wheat beers and white IPAs, you should be able to have a grasp of what this tastes like before you drink it. It's quite light and goes down easy, with a zesty lemony hop-forward flavor. The finish is very dry and mildly bitter, with hardly any maltiness present. This is the only white IPA I've ever had, so hard to say how it compares, but I surely enjoy it, and it would likely be palatable to anyone scared off by the intense hoppiness of a normal IPA as it goes down pretty easy.

A great beer, Hops and citrus that fades into a low coriander and finishes with a dryness that is impressive for a beer.

Taste Rating in Words: It's an infinity pool in the middle of the desert on a beautiful day.
