3.91/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - 3.5/5
Pours a medium-clear golden orange, with lots of very slightly-off-white head.

Smell - 3.75/5
Citrus, grains of paradise (citrusy, peppery spice), floral hops.

Taste - 4/5
Citrus, grains of paradise, strong lemon, floral hops. Slight notes of berry fruit. Very refreshing taste. Some Belgian breadiness.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Slightly more than medium body. In between crisp and creamy. Very low bitterness, a slightly less than medium amount of slightly higher than average intensity carbonation.

Overall - 4/5
Overall this is a great beer. It really is about about halfway between a Belgian and an IPA. Would definitely recommend trying.

White Hatter pours exactly what it should be : an apricot/golden color with a tall, frothy, almost cappucino-like head. And it just stays. Forever.

Ripe stone fruits on the nose with canteloupe, coriander, pale malts, spring wheat, clove, candied honey-glazed carrots, and faint pine.

Hits hard with the bitterness of an IPA, but takes a soft curve treading gently ending with plush notes of wheat, coriander, banana, and bubblegum.

Delicate, yet plump with fruit and juices, soft as a feather on the palate, very polite and mild carbonation, and a sticky semi-dry finish.

Why hardly anyone else isn't raving about this beer is beyond me. This is a world class offering and totally worthy of merit.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is a cloudy light golden brown color with a half finger of head that dissipated quickly. The nose is pleasantly hoppy. The flavor profile is mild with light malt and a dry slightly hoppy finish.

This offering makes for a nice smooth session beer on a warm summer day but there is nothing extraordinary here.

Serve on tap in a tulip glass

This beer pours hazy orange with an underwhelming white head. The beer has a ligt fruity aroma from the hops. This beer is all about the hops. The hop profile is really mid country, there is a lot of pineapple, orange, and lemons zestas well as a lot of other fruity notes. I did not get much of the "white" aspect of this beer but I bet it would be easier to differentiate by doing a side by side with the classic mad hatter. Drinks really easy and quite refreshing. A great white IPA, if my memory serves me right I like this more then the original but I didn't have the original fresh from the tap.
