Now that Sierra Snow Wit has hit the national market, can we make White IPA a style? Is it not more worthy than Session IPA?

Biggest difference is that session IPAs tend to be enjoyable and white IPA is, for the most part, a style that should die and go to hell.

Yeah, I keep trying them, and keep wondering why....

so..if you don’t enjoy a style, it shouldn’t count?

On an unrelated note, your Kombucha just recently showed up in Decorah.

IPA + vile herb ≠ new style...

do you consider Citra hops to be vile and herby? I think most people who dismiss the style have only had a few half ass misinterpreted examples ( think American Saison), which there are plenty of. A beer that captures the yeasty thickness of a Belgian Wit and the crisp, tropical citrus hoppiness of a new school IPA or Session IPA is what constitutes a White IPA to me.

It’s not a real style and they should just be buried as awful wits or awful IPAs.
