COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

12oz bottle. Best before 9/2013. Mostly clear golden orange color. Mildly hazy with lots of fine particles in the body. Thin off-white head. Decent lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, sort of a light creaminess to the texture, more dry in the finish. Lightly spicy coriander in the nose, some wit-yeast. Orange, other citrus flavors. Some light spicy, herbal hop notes. Zesty sweet taste, light bitter. Pretty solid, satisfyingly complex white IPA.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a nice looking slightly hazy gold with an average size long-lasting frothy off-white head. Lacing on the glass. Pleasant aroma of citrus and other fruit, light hops, herbs and yeast. Flavour of fruit first followed by wheat, yeast, hops and herbs. Long moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. A nice surprise, I quite liked this, a nice Summer sipper.

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.

DSG (5827) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander, citrus peels, yeast, fruity esters and a bit of hops, floral and a bit citric. Sweetish and spicy flavor with wheat, some fruitiness, coriander, light graininess and a rather bitter finish with some hops and more spiciness. Medium-bodied. Decent and kinda refreshing. More like a slightly hoppy Witbier than a White IPA. Could use more hops.
