Notes / Commercial Description:
White Hops is a nod to Georgia’s forgotten brewing history, taking its name from a mysterious Atlanta malt beverage sold in 1898, under the nose of regulators. Even though the now-defunct Atlanta City Brewery was a mainstay of the city’s business community, no one knows what the original “White Hops” tasted like. So we used our imaginations and a Belgian yeast strain to craft our best approximation—a full-flavored white IPA, brewed with wheat malt, Citra hops, spices and grapefruit peel. Aromatic and intense, with a unique malt backbone, this ale is for hop enthusiasts looking to surpass the ordinary.

Light citrusy hoppy beer. Like a summer pale.

On tap in Atlanta.

This "white IPA" [55 IBU] looks like watery white grapefruit juice with a minimal weak head.

Tart, fruity aroma and flavor with a near moderate bitter finish.
Suitably complex flavor.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky pale yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma is citrus and hops. the taste is fruit centered with some hops in the background.

L: Hazy, soft orange that definitely looks more like a wheat. The head poured very light, but thickened quickly and has pretty good retention.

S: Again, more like a wheat with sharp/tart orange and yeast.

T: Tastes like an unsweetened or flat Blue Moon with a splash of hops at the end.

F: Oily and light bodied with too much carbonation.

O: Not good. Maybe it just isn't my type of beer. It felt like there might be potential, but everything seems out of balance. I don't see a date on the bottle, but it definitely doesn't taste fresh to me.

Poured on draft in the Atlanta airport.

A: Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a soapy two finger white head leaving some heavy lacing.

S: Belgian yeast esters, piney hops, and lemon citrus.

T: Nice crisp hop bite with a touch of citrus. Lemon and Grapefruit. Just a hint of sweetness at the end.

M: Light and refreshing with moderate carbonation. There is almost a sessionable quality to this one,

O: Very drinkable IPA with some similarities to Belgian pale ale or even a saison in some respects.

Light yellow to bright golden in appearance, the head was a thin lace of bright white foam.

The nose is fruity with coconut, cocoa butter, lemon and then finishes with honey sweetness. I do get a sour tart aroma also.

The taste is smooth with honey, clove, coconut cream, green Apple and a sweet caramel malt.

The feel is so easy and smooth with no astringency and a great easy drinkability.

I really enjoyed this White IPA as it had some great malt and fruity hop sweetness but really showcased the coconut tones.

I got a 4 pack of this at Tower in Doraville since I was curious as to what a white IPA was. It's much lighter tasting compared to some other IPA's I have had. Lots of floral and citrus notes, with a slight sweetness. There's a good hoppiness to it but the bitterness isn't overwhelming. Very easy to drink.

Look is cloudy lemonade like with a foamy but not fluffy inch of head. Great start with the look and the mildly spicy, floral aroma. If you didnt know better you would not think this an ipa. The taste is where this leaves me wanting. The hops are not assertive enough. Its definitely on the belgian side, which does not suit my tastes as an ipa lover. I would say its fairly well representative of the white ipa/belgian ipa style. So i give it points for that. Would make a great summer sipper when a session ipa wont do as well as an intro to the ipa style for newcomers.

Straw (3) with loose white head. Insane hop aroma, very grassy, and a hint of licorice. Up front taste of hops and licorice, citrusy middle, hoppy finish. Lite mouthfeel, slightly oily hop tongue coating. Hopped up, but out of balance with other flavors.
