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.

Fritz123 (1472) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Pours a light colored IPA with a puffy white head and some lacing. Snifter at Lizardville. The aroma was bigger blonde with coriander, orange zest, belgian yeasts, and grains. The taste was similar to a blonde with a little more hop backbone. Not bad but kinda of a weird style. Clean finish.

Beerathon (1666) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Gold pour with thin white whispy head and slight lacing. A first whiff, it smells like a Belgian wit, with bitter orange peel, coriander, wheat, and yeast being predominant. The hops give it a citrus note, but it doesn’t show up until the backend of the flavor profile. Bigger than a typical wit/white, leading to a fuller mouthfeel. I appreciate what they’re doing here, but not all the flavors/aromas work together for me.

dmac (4956) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2015
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a clear bronze with a fizzy off white head. Aroma/flavor of Belgian yeast, cloves, corriander, banana, white pepper, lemon, grains, toast. Flavor is actually a step down and not as crisp and up-front as the aroma, but similar. Body is medium overall with average to slightly lighter carbonation and a quick flash of heat.

jimhilt (2489) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours a two-finger cream head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Cloudy pale amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Pine hop nose and flavor is pine hops, Belgian yeast and some orange rind, not as hoppy as an IPA. $2.15 for a 12 oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Onslow (1301) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Cloudy amber brew with thick white head that drops down to a small film, leaving excellent lacing. Nice aroma of fruit esters, grapefruit and sweet malts. Taste is sweet with orange overtones up front with a banana-ish fruit taste emerging towards the middle, a nice blend of Belgian style spice and citrusy grapefruit layers in towards the end of the swallow. Keeps a baseline orange and sweetness throughout. Ends clean and dry, no lingering overtones. Palate is excellent - the carbonation explodes (gently) on the tongue to give each sip a soft burst of energy. This is restrained and not markedly spicey/fruity like a Belgian or hopped up to the max like many IPAs - but in that restraint the brewer has managed a harmony of divergent tastes that really comes together and works well.
