Hoyne Carte Blanche White IPA Review Hoyne Brewing Co. – Carte Blanche White IPA Review

Hoyne Brewing doesn’t release a ton of new seasonals but when they do it is something to keep an eye out for. The Carte Blanche is a White IPA. As part of the “Young Lions” series of beers where Sean Hoyne’s younger brewers have been given “Carte Blanche” to try out new ideas. This beer pours from the bomber bottle a hazy golden colour with two fingers of lacing head. The aroma is tropical with hop tones of peach, passion fruit, melon and grapefruit along with a wheat character. The bitterness on the nose is quite mellow. Tasting the beer it has a big and wheaty mouthfeel that leads into a lightly sweet, tropical fruit mid section. The melon, passionfruit and grapefruit tones come out in force. This leads into a mellow bitter finish along side a lingering fruit character and wheat, off-dry mouthfeel. White IPAs can be hit or miss but this is a tasty, enjoyable and refreshing IPA.

Alcohol – 6.0%
Size – 650ml bottles
