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!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "enjoy by" date 1-9-15.

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, straw color with one-finger white head, excellent retention, there is a nice white cap that remained throughout, significant lacing, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread, coriander, lemon citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet and bready then coriander and lemon citrus hops, very balanced, the 6% ABV is imperceptible.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very good beer, it's a different hop profile than a traditional IPA, this is a milder citrus hop profile and makes a more balanced beer, this beer does not burn out your palate and I could definitely drink more than one in a sitting, I would definitely buy this again and would recommend to anyone that enjoys the style.

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.

Ghostrider pours a bright straw color with a small but lacing head. There is a bitter aroma. The taste has some spices, a crisp malt backbone, and some bitter hop flavors. Good body and flavors. Overall, the larger bitterness just doesn't fit.

Nice faded yellow hazy color with a great lasting white head. Slight hop smell but you can really smell the coriander. Fruity citrus taste. Smooth and creamy. Pretty good white ups!

Looks like a white and smells a little like one, but it pretty much ends there. Sweet up front with a bitter finish along with some alcohol warmth. Bitter seems to be from hops and yeast. Not a bad brew; drinkable.
