I am beginning to see "White IPA's" in the bev centers lately,
Am I behind the times or is this new trend. I have not tried one yet but,
I think I am going out now to buy a six.
If they are any good?
what is the base recipe idea for the type of beer. KB

[ open on suburban kitchen, Wife and Husband arguing ]

Wife: New Shimmer is a floor wax!

Husband: No, new Shimmer is a dessert topping!

Wife: It's a floor wax!

Husband: It's a dessert topping!

Wife: It's a floor wax, I'm telling you!

Husband: It's a dessert topping, you cow!

Spokesman: [ enters quickly ] Hey, hey, hey, calm down, you two. New Shimmer is both a floor wax and a dessert topping! Here, I'll spray some on your mop.. [ sprays Shimmer onto mop ] ..and some on your butterscotch pudding. [ sprays Shimmer onto pudding ]


(Thanks to SNL)


Well, apparently "white IPA" is basically a melding of Belgian witbier and IPA. Imagine a strong, hoppy wit.

I haven't had one yet. The best example seems to be a collaboration between Boulevard and Deschutes, with Boulevard's version given the edge.

Well... Moon River BC won GABF gold with a Rosemary IPA last year.

I had an over-hopped wit a few years back at our local competition. It placed very highly in the Specialty category - I still remember it so it must have been pretty good and had planned to make something akin at some point. I believe he said he used Amarillo hops in lieu of orange peel and added coriander.

"Well, apparently "white IPA" is basically a melding of Belgian witbier and IPA. Imagine a strong, hoppy wit."

Back when I was a young brewer, many moons ago....this style fell under the catch all term of "Grand Cru".

I think I'll save the rosemary for the leg of lamb.

Christo, that actually sounds really good - replacing the orange peel with a citrusy hop. I really like Amarillo, and it seems like it would be a good fit flavor/aroma-wise.

No orange peel? Then you're moving away from being a wit at all. I would keep the orange peel AND the Amarillo. That sounds like a great combo.

If you could get some grapefruit zest from the Lower Rio Grande Valley and some grapefruity hops, you could brew a Tex-wit IPA.

This obviously calls for a SMaSH recipe and don't forget to hopburst in your keggle.



Yeesh . . . what next, an amber porter?

An employee did this thing with cigar boxes. I don't want to talk about it.

Denny,
There is a brewery that puts out a jasmine IPA, you could try that after the lavender. :-)

That jasmine IPA is retched. Is it Long Trail?

Saw a Sam Adams add about their "new" white IPA which they said a Wit IPA. Actually the rosemary sounds interesting in an IPA to me. What is the BJCP going to say!?

Moon River's Rosemary IPA is actually quite good. In fact I just had one . burp. Next time your in SAV you'll have to try one.

We have a huge rosemary bush out back. I made an Amber a few years ago and it won a ribbon in our comp. It really works well in moderately hoppy beers.

Now jasmine? Not so sure about that.

Ask a simple question and “Hummmm…?”The answers you get?!?

I went out and tried a white IPA.

The one I tried (IMO) was an American wheat beer
(A blend of barley and wheat malt)
With some orange peel and coriander, Flaked oat to help give it the whiteness and a bitterness of “Citra” hops.

I will give it thumbs up, it was a good beer.

This is far flung from a Wit beer as mentioned.

The “Citra” hop gave the beer a center of the tong and roof of the mouth drying bitterness that lingered.
It had a tonic or quinine lingering but not at all in a cloying way.

The bitterness lingered

This is a nice hop that went well with the” American wheat IPA” idea.

I have never used citra hop in any of my homebrews in the past.
I think, I will try it in a near future American wheat brew.

Lucky, the two hops that immediately came to mind when this thread started were Amarillo and Citra, I think the two would make for a great combo in a beer like this.

Amarillo if I remember was like a cascade hop.
I have used Amarillo in the past.
I would think Amarillo would go well with an American wheat (white) IPA.
I have never had much luck with orange peel and coriander. I either have to much or too little. I have not ever had it right.
The White IPA
I tried might have been a wit by design in the mash,
An IPA in the brew kettle, with the addition of orange peel and coriander,
And I would say American type of yeast (Ale or Wheat?) to finish.
It definitely had an American wheat style to it.
I thought it was a tasty brew.
One I will try again.
My next attempted home brew will be and American Pale or IPA
with “Nelson Souvin hops” and “Golden promise malt”.
thanks for your post everyone

I think the jasmine IPA is Elysian's Avatar IPA.
IMO it is good, but not great.

It is Avatar. I've never had it, but did pick up a fridge magnet at a beer fest some years ago.

Does somebody have a Wit IPA recipe they could post?

I have shaved an ounce of Texas grapefruit zest, dried, and am holding it to make my Tex-Wit IPA. I will add at flame out for aroma. Use a grapefruity aroma/dry hop in addition to Amarillo (and orange peel/coriander 15-min boil). Any suggestion for the hops? Cascade, Chinook?
