Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

Pours a nice hazy golden color, as is typical of most white IPAs I have found. Leaves a medium white head fading into medium lacing throughout. Smells floral, citrusy, and smells a little like bread. Taste: perfection. Perfect balance of hop flavor, malt, and wheat. Feels solid, somewhat robust but not overly hoppy, certainly not assaulting. Overall, this is the best white IPA I've had so far. I highly recommend it.

cloudy yellow with a fat head
smell is ripe with hops with just a little spice note in there
taste is hoppy and funky, i some yeast and spice flavor
overall this seems unique with dense flavor while still being pretty drinkable

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.

I am surprise by this one. Maybe the White IPA branding left me suspicious, thinking this to a be a lighter, less assertive IPA, but that is not correct. There are a vast array of hop flavors here, all working in harmonious balance with the added coriander. The lighter body makes for an eminently drinkable beer, but this does not result in any loss of flavor or complexity. This would be a perfect IPA for a hot summer day.

Really liked this beer, but I have an overfondness for white IPAs.

i've had maybe three or four white ipa's and this has gotta be the best one so far, very tasty. i'd recommend white ipa's over regular ipa's anyday, they have a better taste.

Very nicely done! Unfiltered, which leaves a good deal of the particle element which contributes nicely to any beer (in my ever unhumble opinion). Pours a light cloudy amber. Thin head. Nice, citrus aroma. One of the best hop deliveries I've seen, low on the bitter side but very present. In the world of light colored beers it is my dog's favorite, and that's quite a complement!

L: A hazy straw pour builds a clingy, rocky 3” white foam collar. S: Big grassy hop nose T: Fruity attack with a touch lemon culminates in a drying, hoppy finish. F: Medium body, medium high carbonation. O: A good, solid IPA.
