Wasatch Ghostrider White India Pale Ale
A few weeks or so ago, I received a few beers from an agency helping Utah Brewers Cooperative launch their beers in to Massachusetts and Rhode Island. I don't live in either, but I know some of you really cool people reading this right now do. Utah Brewers Cooperative of course brews the beers for the Squatters and Wasatch brands of beers.
I tried all the ones they sent before (including the one shipping fatality) except Wasatch Ghostrider White India Pale Ale. If you have to try one for sure, it's their Polygamy Porter--gimmick name but really nice beer and cool label art. But let's see about this one too. Born on 05/22/13. 6.0% alcohol.
Fragrant though not powerful hops, full of citrus and floral scents. Very floral and somewhat bitter hops are the first thing to hit the palate. Lemony kind of Pledge type flavor with some doughy backup, a little astringent. Pale malt, light spice, more citrus rind zing. There is also a wheaty texture. Crisp, refreshing, fairly bitter, pretty decent. I'd drink it again for sure.
