Riptide white IPA is a beer brewed with a malt body similar to a Belgian style Wit with loads of torrified wheat. It’s hopped like an IPA, but we use a unique blend of Czech Saaz, French Strisselspalt, Calypso, Centennial and Cascade hops to create a big citrus nose and flavor with floral accents. To complete the feel of the wit style, we push the beer through our hopback which is loaded with Spanish sweet orange peel, Curaçao bitter orange peel, coriander, and a generous helping of hops. It’s fermented with a classic Belgian Wit yeast which provides all of the fruity and spicy notes you’d expect. We then blast the tank with our hop cannon which is loaded with Calypso, Strisselspalt, and Citra hops and more orange peel. The beer is then lightly filtered to retain all of the exceptional yeast character.

Hazy orange color with tons of chunky floaters. Pretty unappealing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, wheat, coriander and other typical wit spices. Pretty dry. Very little hop aroma or flavor.

I thought this was a decent beer. A lot of carbonation and a nice spiced finish. Overall decent

Pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of coriander and clove. Flavors of cloves and other spice with some orange peel and very light hops. Strong sense of wheat. Wife: 3.5

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2013
8/25/13. 12oz bottle at Bad Habitz. Hazy orange pour with a small off-white head. Spice and yeast esters dominate the aroma with light citrus aspects. Yeasty flavor, a sort of off chalky bitterness, and plenty of spice. Meh.

Cybercat (5173) - Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Pours a clear golden amber with a few bubbles rising within and a fairly thick, if not too persistent, ivory head. Hoppy aroma has a fruity overtone and a hint of - what? Ah, must be the spices. Herbal notes dominate the hoppy flavor, which has a nice orange tone and a hint of malt. Firm, smooth texture has a subtle tingle and leaves a hoppy, herbal finish. Get caught in this riptide!

Very hazy light orange body with foamy head. Aroma of bitter orange, floral, citrus, very Belgian-yeasty. Taste of orange, yeast, wheat. Palate yeasty and orangey. I hate Belgians, so to me this was fairly disgusting, but as a marriage of Wit and IPA it’s probably spot-on.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Turbid deep yellow with a small white head. Yeasty nose, with heavy orange, citric hops and some soap. Juicy citrus hop flavors, medium bitterness, lots of fruit, and tangy wheat. Medium bodied, refreshing, somewhat too alcoholic but overall OK.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6846) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with a large creamy-soapy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was musty, peppery, dusty and had a bit of funk and earthy hops. The flavor was bitter, tart, lemon, musty, dusty, black pepper, funk and earthy hops. Long musty and funky lemon and pepper finish.Moderately full bodied. Decent.
