Pint at Local Tap House St Kilda 18/3/14, listed as a Belgian White IPA on the chalkboard and I was told its Hop Hog crossed with a Wit

A light haze in a golden orange body, looks a little flat with just a few slow bubbles making their way to a finger of dense foam that leaves plenty of random lace

S pineapple comes out strong, sweet orange peel follows, some herbal notes and a big floral presence, the cereal and spice of a wit with lots of tropical citrus, smells absolutely massive, I had my nose buried in this one and people were starting to notice

T tropical fruit and a little more spice, well a lot more spice actually, lemon rind comes out a little more in the mouth, different then the nose and although it tastes great the nose was a hard act to follow

M lighter side of medium, not sure where all these bubbles came from as not many are visible but she creams up, loads of sweet orange rind and spice on the finish

O A very hopped up version of a wit and I fell in love with the nose, not lacking anywhere this ones a winner for patio season

Worked great on this bright sunny day in Melbourne and I could drink these all day if it wasn't 15$ a pint, Imperial Wit?, Belgian White IPA?, call it whatever you want this is great beer

I had a 330ml bottle bottle.
Appearance: pours light honey and cloudy being unfiltered to allow the yeasts to be present. Excellent clean white 1cm head that remains. Looking good.
Aroma: nice yeasty esters that I like in a wheat beer style and very faint banana.
Flavour: great smooth creamy mouthfeel, nice yeast flavours combining with fine light malts. Medium carbonation works well. Very pleasant. Brewer says this has orange peel and corridander added to the boil to add spice and citrus flavours. I don't get these specifically in the flavours but there is complexity. Further, if I were to compare it to Blue Moon for example which follows the orange additions this beer beats it by a country mile.
Overall: great example of the White wheat beer blend style. Clean, refreshing, very flavoursome, complex balance and looks great smooth creamy mouthfeel. Recommended. A high rating from me. Enjoy.
