12 oz can. Pours light red amber with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet vegetal grains and fruity noble hops.

The flavor is sweet grainy malt with some floral fruit and harsh ashy hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I'm not liking the flavors. I remember liking this better on tap.

Fruity, Hoppy, Warming, Clean

Slightly hazed amber with a thick, billowous head, this IPL throws a big, hoppy aroma that's fruity and floral with deep melon, pine and berry notes. Full-bodied, silky smooth and a bit viscous with a sharp carbonation bite up front and a creaminess that runs to the end. Sweet, a bit syrupy, and full of toasty and bready malt characters. More fruitiness and hoppiness follow, with apple, stone fruits, some tropical juiciness, pine, resin and a raw leafy edge. A breadcrust-y finish includes hop notes that literally stick around for ages. Warming alcohol is detectable, but this is much cleaner than your typical 7 percent IPA, and much fuller than a lager. Wibby IPL is a delicious hybrid for hopheads.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #117 (October 2016).
