About White IPA

About White IPA
White IPAs are clear or hazy, golden-colored beers that range from 4.5-6% in alcohol. These brews are a hybrid of the hop-forward American IPA and traditional Belgian wit styles. The flavors and aromas of these beers feature both the spice profile of Belgian wits and the citrusy and/or resinous aromatic hop profile of American IPAs, with medium-to-high hop bitterness. They are usually available only in summer months, but are steadily becoming year-round offerings as this style grows in popularity. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA, Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA and Flying Dog Raging Bitch Belgian Style IPA.

Bright gold color. Interesting aromas and flavors of citrus, rosemary, and sweet pickle relish with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a seamless, charming, medium-long finish displaying elements of grapefruit custard, mango chutney, peppered greens, and hint of asian spices finish. A seamless and flavorful IPA that is artfully crafted.
