Look: Hazy gold/straw color with a thin, whitish head.
Smell: Gorgeous, complex hop aroma. Floral, herbal, minty. A bit of vanilla. Juicy strawberry.
Taste: Lemon, grass, mint, herbs, chamomile. Lots of orange and grapefruit. Herbal spiciness with some toasty malt sweetness. Some herbal, slightly soapy bitterness on the finish.
Feel: Medium-bodied. Crisp and spicy.
Overall: The look, smell, taste, and feel all combine for a complex, juicy, herbal mixture. This is a great beer!

Cloudy light yellow pour. Smells great. Pineapple and floral aroma. A milder taste. Sweet and not overly hoppy. Falls a little flat but not bad. I definitely wouldn't say a blizzard, maybe a light snow shower.

Great brew - not sure what classifies it as a "winter IPA" other than the time of year it comes out, but it's a great one. Piney, resinous smell, joined with some solid dank in taste, and a very crisp and dry finish.

Hazy, translucent golden yellow with a white cap of head. Good retention. Streaky lacing.
Smells of lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, and pine.
Tastes of lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, white bread, and pine. Lightly dry and well rounded with a lightly bitter finish.
Medium-bodied, well carbonated, lightly creamy and soft, and just slightly sticky-resinous on the finish.
A very pleasant wheat IPA from Troegs. Good beer.

12oz can bb 2/22/19 poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 6.4% ABV 80 IBU. The beer pours hefe-hazy orange tinted yellow in color with nearly white head. The head recedes to a thin cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is tangerine, candied orange and pine. The taste is piney first then switches to a lemon lime with firm bitterness. There is a bit of cough drop / pine sol artificial taste in the mix of hops. The mouthfeel is thin bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, good. It's an different take on an IPA (especially for a winter seasonal) with the thin malt body and Centennial, Chinook, Galaxy & El Dorado combo.

Hazy straw, solid white head, but not too great in the way of retention. Nice lace.
Citrus, tropical, and pomme fruit aromas, along with some pine.
Lightly bready malt, pomme fruit, a bit of citrus
Nice mouthfeel and carbonation.
Not a go too, but pretty decent
