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.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
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.

Augusta, Ga - Toast Wine and Beverage - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky, light orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of bubble gum and coriander. Flavor has a a dollop of yeast, some sweet cake mix doughy notes, a touch of coriander spiciness, just a hint of citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel has a nice spritz to it. More like a wit than an IPA.
