Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Whiteferrari is a beer that has been a long time in the making. We've been experimenting with different malt and hop combinations through other recipes, trying to find what we believe is the best of both worlds rolled into one DIPA. Clocking in at 8%, this luxuriously soft DIPA is hopped intensely with 50/50 Citra and Galaxy(and a ton of it!). We used the freshest crop available of each hop to give this DIPA the most expressive hop character possible. We truly believe this is one of, if not the best hoppy beer we've released(and we hope you agree!).

4.34/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy orange with fine, soft head.

Smell is sweet and juicy with notes of peaches, mango and sweetened cream.

Taste is almost dessert like, with sweet vanilla/cream upfront and a pile of citrus and peaches behind. Soft bitterness and nice hop bite, well balanced.

Mouthfeel is typical The Veil, soft and pillowy, and well carbonated.

Overall, another very nice DIPA by The Veil.

A:
Pours the color of peach yogurt with a finger of short-lived white head. Little retention; no lacing. (3.75)

S:
Dank citrus oils, stonefruit, pot. (4)

T:
Peach, pear, orange peel, bitter herbal finish. (4.25)

M:
Fluffy body with moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish, apparent alcohol. (4)

O:
A nice, big ol' beer.
It pours about par for the course, but not as pretty as some. The aroma is primarily fruity. This is the first beer I've ever had where I can kind of smell what some might describe as a cat piss, but it doesn't overpower. The flavor is more in realm of medicinal/herbal but is still fruity and sweet first and foremost. To me it loses a little drinkability due to the alcohol but is otherwise a very good beer. (4.25)

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque bright gold color with a finger of effervescent white head. The head leaves a ring of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma is a melange of pineapples and key lime pie. There's also some mango and papaya with a citrusy back end.

The flavor brings lots of grapefruit and tangerines, as well as some lime zest. Then comes a wave of pineapples and overripe mangoes. Danksauce.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very creamy with a dry finish.

Overall, a great and flavorful DIPA. The Galaxy and Citra combo is pretty much the recipe for gold.

Canned 8/23

Now this is an interesting beer.

Gorgeouse hazy appearance. Good legs.

Smell is papaya, lime, passion fruit, a sweaty durian like aroma and the hoppy resinous smell. Very pungent. Honestly didn't have the best nose. Its very dank and not in a fantastic way but an,interesting hip profile.

Taste is unbelievably bold happiness. Like a bump of coke... But hops. Rounds out with minimal stone fruit, watermelon rind, passionfruit and papaya.

Soft velvety mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Overall, I'd trade for more anytime!!

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/20/2018. Pours opaquely hazy/cloudy golden amber/green color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, honey, biscuit dough, light nutty/toast, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, honey, biscuit dough, light nutty/toast, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, honey, biscuit dough, light nutty/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, fairly sticky, and slightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is an awesome NE DIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV, with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Nice soft feel, not overly aggressive. Great Citra/Galaxy showcase. Very juicy and fairly dank/earthy hop complexity; nice bready malt backbone, with minimal residual sweetness from lingering dryness. A really enjoyable offering and spot on style example.
