White Belt IPA

During a recent visit to Toronto's Bandit Brewery, I took the recommendation of my server and ordered a 16oz pour of their White Belt IPA, billed as a blend of IPA and a Belgian wheat ale, dry hopped with an array of good green cones.

My glass arrived a cloudy pale gold ale, crowned with a lush white head. At 5.3%, it's a little on the weak side, but at 70 IBUs, it doesn't want for bitterness. The nose was hop-heavy with some understated fruit notes. Robustly bitter, the beer was quite dry, and underlaid with faint tropical notes.

Other than the lower than standard booze bill, White Belt provided me with very little to complain about. It was nicely executed, flavourful, and commendably hoppy.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
