This was a cloudy, dark yellow; it was served with a small fizzy head.

I smelled spicy coriander, earthy yeast, and some hoppy resin and citrus. Taste is similar, it comes across like a hoppy wit with caramel. This was okay, not one I'll revisit though.

Date tasted: July 18, 2013 ... Glassware: Kisatsky Tavern pint... Occasion: settling in for 90+ degree day number five and enjoying Evil genius beer number three....Appearance: hazy iced-tea-colored body, orange-brown and thinly drawn head; a bit like a fake tan?... Aroma: definite spruce cone scents, with some ... Palate: medium-bodied and crunchy at the teeth; otherwise, not a smooth drink but not annoying...Taste: wow--bitter hops greet the mouth with a crunch; the wheat seems to be swirling a confused, middling bubblegum stretch; odd aftertaste of vegetable (?!) banana comes late, but is welcome... Overall: of the three in this six-pack sampler, this hits best, with a definite agenda and a positive outcome; sometimes the tap lures us to the bottle and the bottle doesn't reward, much like the first full-length LP from the opening band you were surprisingly moved toward; I enjoyed this nonetheless....

I picked this up at the new Weis Markets Bottle Shop in Lititz during a recent foray up that way. I have also submitted a Change Request since I do not believe that it was intended to be a "Wheat Pale Ale". Instead, it is on the label as a "White IPA", making it a part of that new breed, the "Belgian IPA".

I did a little bit of agitation in the bottle before popping the cap. I began with an aggro pour of about half of the bottle's contents until it began to really foam up following a pseudo-cascade. The two fingers of dense, rocky, bone-white head with great retention resembled meringue. Coupled with the cloudy, golden-yellow color of the beer itself (SRM = 5), it looked like a slice of lemon meringue pie in my glass! Ha. Nose had the black pepper smell of coriander, plus a citrus and tropical fruitiness that is indicative of the Belgian IPAs. Watching the Belgian lace form as the head began to fall made my mouth begin to water uncontrollably. Flavor was more towards tropical fruit - mango, papaya but I also got a definite black pepper bite on the tongue. Finish was dry, probably from the use of spices, but possibly from the yeast strain, also. I did not like it quite as much as the White Hatter, but I am now certain that they are of the same style.
