The Toques Of Hazzard White Imperial IPAThe Toques Of Hazzard White Imperial IPA
Notes: An Imperial IPA made with wheat to keep the beer light bodied and a hazy white. Big hop flavours and aromas of tropical fruit and gooseberries from the Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops.

I wanna preface this by saying I normally loathe IPAs in general, with two sole exceptions. This is one of them, and the other is also by Parallel 49.

Poured from a 473mL can.
L: Hazy as heck, pale gold.
S: The citrusy scent comes off STRONK AF on this. Maybe that's why I love this beer so much as a fruit beer fan, normally.
T: Instant citrus kick. There are light hints of grass but the fruity flavor comes out right away. Swallow is delightful.
M: Right from the can, the carbonation kicks you in the nuts. The beer goes down really, really smooth after that though.
O: I suck at reviewing IPAs because normally I hate them, but damn, I love this. Give this to someone who hates IPAs normally and tell them it's just a lighter beer, then have them look at the ABV. They'll poop bricks. Amazing beer overall.

Hazy dark yellow in color with a half finger of foamy white head that has good retention to it and leaves patchy curtains of lace.

Nice Tropical fruit aroma to it with notes of grapefruit, mangoes and guava with some faint hefe notes on the back-end.

Flavor forward is heavy, sweet and lightly tropical with notes of citrus fruits, overripe pineapple and green mangoes with a faint hint of lychee towards the back end.

Heavy bodied with a solid caramel sweetness to it, a bit over-sweet really, almost syrup feeling, if there is wheat present in the malt bill, I'm not getting any thing from it, but it could be easily overpowered by the ofter flavors present.

Finish gets fairly bitter with a lingering resinous pine and herbal hop flavor, also very little in the way of a hefe or whit esters to it, but maybe some ghostly floral notes underneath the heavier flavors, slightly boozy notes on back end not so much in the mouth but a definite warmth to it, leave hints of lychee and a lingering pine bitterness on the aftertaste.

Not actually pretty good for a IIPA but got my hopes up for an Imperial white IPA and was a bit disappointed there.

Serving: 473 ml can poured into a small highball glass.

Appearance: Pale, slightly hazy golden yellow with a lush white head. Sticky, streaky lacing.

Smell: Citrus rind, juicy melon and dank hops.

Taste: Citrus and musk melon continue from the nose along with white grapes, berries, husky grain, and slightly harsh bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate to lively carbonation.

Overall: A big, brash brew with plenty of Nelson hop notes.

650 ml bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow/golden with small white head. Aroma is an inviting deep pine. Taste is initially a mild tropical fruit, subdued piney notes - crisp and clean - slightly underwhelming after the aroma....but then at the finish a slightly boozy bitterness takes hold which coats the mouth and lingers. Bit of a roller coaster beer - great on the nose - ok in the middle - strong finish. Very good.

My favourite craft beer by far. From a 6pk including Gypsy Tears and filthy Dirty, poured from a 341mL btl into a Tulip

L: very musky and orange, not transparent at all 1.5 fingers of head that sticks around for awhile

S: Very tropical hints of orange, pineapple, apricot and pear with a slight hint of hoppyness (happiness?) ;)

T: Fruity as mentioned above very crisp, no dryness. Can definitely feel the carbonation

M: Kind of heavy but not like a porter heavy, quite fizzy

O: As mentioned above my fave craft beer (that I've tried) wish that it wasn't a seasonal would pick up one every day if possible

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, pine. Taste is minty, caramel malts, pineapple, light alcohol. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall an interesting and good quality beer.

Pours a strikingly clear, light gold body with decent lacing. Pine cones and caramel sweetness in the flavor. Kind of an odd duck as i don't see the "white IPA" aspect of it but it was decent enough.

Sunshine with barely any froth. 3.5
Clingy Citra oil, lemon plus a bit of sugar - but that’s it, and dim. 3.75
Sugar cookie dough, whack of rubbery phenols, lemon meringue, fresh hop leaf, and some white grape spice. 3.5
Key lime finish and clingy linger.
Medium, chewy, oily. 3.75

Nose is pretty simple. Body sits heavy, phenols are large, and the Nelson doesn’t really show. Eases as it opens, but a bit of work even if it is interesting. 3.75

9.2% ABV, 76 ibu, 650ml bottle.
A - light orange with thin head, yeast floating, cloudy.
S - crispy, refreshing lemon peel, grapefruit, orange, berries, Pilsner malt sweetness. lager-y smell, canned pineapple water sweetness.
T - well carbonation. medium (big smooth sticky) body. orange juice taste, malty, syrupy, grassy hops, bitterness comes at the end n lingering. there's kinda barrel aged sweetness stick on the tongue, really good!
O - it's a really good beer, more than I expected! ABV hide very well, yet u got the heat down to ur throat. yes, it tastes like Belgium triple with loads of hops, and tastes like tropical juice as well! you'd probably be amazed how gooseberry Nelson Sauvin hops (NZ) can do. Recommended & a must try!

Bottle. Poured out a slightly hazy, golden yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of yeast, citrus and pine. Sweet citrusy bite with a yeasty kick and piney finish.

22 oz bottle, not your usual shape though. No date.

It describes itself as an Imperial Wheat IPA. Hazy pale golden color, bright white head. Fairly accurate - lighter body, very little malt flavors, just a little sweetness to balance the hop flavor. hop profile is a bit earthy and floral. easy drinking.
