I tried this at Peachtree lounge in Harrisburg, served on tap in a pint.

The color is mostly clear golden with a thin white cap and lace that clings well. The smell is spicy with lemony hops and mild coriander like aroma with some belgian yeast notes
The feel is good with a medium light body with semi-spiced feel and medium carbonation with slight bitterness and some wheat sweetness.

The flavor of this Belgian IPA is more on the Wit side than IPA which is decent with some subtle pepper and lemony notes which seem hop initiated but there is a mild wheat element which seems to slightly dampen the hop bitterness and bring a more toasted wheat taste to the forefront. The hops and spices combine to add a mild soapiness which is not offensive but doesn't enhance the flavor. Overall a good wheat but less of an IPA which seems to be the case when you hybridize a wit and IPA one style has to take precedence. I dislike the name IPA because you expect a lot more hops -A case of marketing over flavor I suppose

Served in a pint glass, on tap here at the Woodhaven House, Queens NY.

Appearance: gold light bubbles on the body, white head is maybe a notch over a 1/4" coming off the the body.

Smell: light floral scent but this beer smells almost like nada, which is better than bad.

Taste: this beer goes in a very good direction with complexity, light bitterness comes off creamy in a very unique way.

Mouth: medium maybe a little heavy to some. After taste maybe a little (honey) sweet or it could be just me.

Overall: very good brew would buy it again in a heart beat I as a matter of fact I will. Salud!

A cloudy yellow gold color with a very healthy white foam on top and luscious lacing. The aroma brings a pleasant vinegar citrus, kind of a neat skunky hop. The flavor comes on with an oaky citrus bite and yeasty lemon bread. It's got a light body but offers a smooth, well carbonated feel. A tasty easy hop drinker with a bit of a bite. Well worth trying, one of the best white IPA's I've had so far.

Picked up a 6-pack at EuroMarket, the cans were stamped July, but the beer tastes plenty fresh. This is a lighter-bodied IPA with a lot of the same earthy spice you're used to in other Belgian IPAs. The hops bring a juicy mix of apricot, tangerine, and mild pine. Mmmm. A mighty fine pale ale here—drinkable and satisfying.

12 oz bottle, pours a slightly cloudy pale gold. Fluffy white head that settles down slowly; lacing is patchy and doesn't cling to the glass. A fairly complex, hoppy aroma with a lot going on: spiciness, citrus fruits, floral notes, just a touch of the malt; smells really appetizing.

The flavor is a well-blended mix of spice and pepper notes, grapefruit, orange, and lemon, and just a bit of biscuity malt propping things up underneath as in the nose. There's an overall Belgian yeast flavor that meshes nicely with the hops. Bitterness is moderate and not particularly lingering and the finish is dry.

Medium-light bodied, solid carbonation, fairly crisp feel, maybe a little fizzy for my tastes.

I found this beer to be really interesting initially but it's one of those that dissipates quickly and becomes less interesting, not more, as it opens up a bit. Something about the flavor in particular is a bit shallow although the yeastiness lingers on a bit, more so than the hops. Overall this is a pretty nice canned IPA, unique and very drinkable, but not something I would make a priority to try or buy again.
