What the brewer says

“Whitemi­ata is the 6 per­cent IPA ver­sion of our beloved Ci­tra/gal­axy DIPA white­fer­rari. The lux­u­ri­ously soft mouth­feel and beau­ti­ful in­te­gra­tion of two of our fa­vorite hops all to­gether in a more crush­able ABV.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Trop­i­cal fruits all over the place—pas­sion fruit, guava, pineap­ple, peach, straw­berry with a touch of or­ange and tan­ger­ine. Hops come across a bit flo­ral.” Fla­vor: “De­li­cious fruit and flo­ral-hops sweet­ness, with a back-end bit­ter wal­lop to re­mind you that you’re drink­ing a beer. The af­ter­taste is a com­bi­na­tion of pure or­ange-blos­som honey and slight as­trin­gent bit­ter­ness.” Over­all: “An in­tensely com­plex aroma that is prob­a­bly what honey bees in Florida en­joy daily. Fla­vor does not dis­ap­point, with a nice blend of flo­ral-hops fla­vors bal­anced with a nice bit­ter­ness.”
