This is a decent IPA, but I have to give it lower ratings, because for something billed as a WHITE IPA, it was simply an IPA, not a WHITE one. White IPAs are such an underappreciated niche that it is exciting to find them, but my hopes were dashed to discover this one does not live up to half of its name.

Best well rounded, crisp, drinkable and refreshing single IPA I've had all year. Nothing "white" or Belgian about it... Or at least that I could pick out. Nice west coast influence with some pleasant tangerine-apricot citrus. The other scores on here don't do this beer justice.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
